Bridal Shower Details
















Unfortunately we were all running around so much that I didn't get a chance to take photos of all the food. My girlfriend made these yummy apple cinnamon dessert shots layered with vanilla Greek yogurt and a pink sugar rim. 


One of the lovely guests was kind enough to bring cake from her dads bakery which helped us slightly with the budget. It was absolutely delicious that I even went back for thirds!  


We filled the bucket with ice and champagne and as the guests arrived we handed them each a glass of chilled champagne. Off to the side we had an infused water bar with cucumber mint and strawberry lemon. 



I got the picture banner idea with the doilies off of Pinterest and tweaked it slightly to match the theme of the bridal shower. I found small wooden clothes pins and painted them gold and glued  small pink flowers onto each pin. I then attached them to a thin white and gold ribbon and stringed them across the fireplace. 




I scored these beautiful flowers at the dollar store. They were a felted type fabric so they looked a lot nicer than the usual flowers you find at the dollar store. I then bought some gold and white ribbon to wrap the vases in order to hide the flower stems. 










I had the pleasure of hosting my best friends bridal shower this past weekend along with three other beautiful bridesmaids. The theme involved gold, white and soft pink; similar to the wedding decor.

It was really nice to hear many of the girls comment on how it looked like something you would find on Pinterest. Unfortunately, I didn't bring my DSLR and ended up using my phone so that's why the photos may not be the best quality, but you get the idea:-) 

The exciting thing that I can share is that I basically got all these items at the dollar store. I made sure that I went to a few different ones by my place as some of them around have better items than others. Most of the decorations were tissue paper fluffs, balloons and streamers. The most expensive item from the decorations ended up being the clear vases that I purchased for $20 each CDN. I ended up buying three different styles to fill with tissue shred and candy, but one of them ended up breaking in my car. 

Although it was a success and the bride to be was very thankful as she adored it all, I'm really glad it's all over as it was a lot of work and definitely took a lot of planning. Oh and I have another one to attend to this week! How exciting:-) 

Have any of you lovely ladies planned a bridal shower before? I would love to hear about what theme you went with

Stay blissful xoxo

    1. Thank you so much Joanna! It was definitely a lot more work than I thought, but so worth it as my girlfriend was extremely happy. We have the exact same taste so it works perfectly because I basically designed it how I would do it for my own bridal shower lol! and the dollar store definitely has some really good pieces, but I even found that some to be quite expensive, such as the vases and Michaels craft store to be even slightly cheaper.

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. I can completely understand why people commented on it looking like something off Pinterest - you did a fantastic job! The overall effect is so feminine and beautiful and don't even get me started on the food. Wow! Also on a different note, that final photo of you two looks really lovely! :)

    1. Thank you so much Gabrielle! It took a lot longer than I imagined and maybe that's because I wanted all the details to really stand out:-) I'm kinda a perfectionist in that way.. But I can't take all the credit as my lovely gf did all the food! She really did such an incredible job along with the two other bridesmaid we all worked to create a lovely space for our amazing friend.

  10. This looks so amazing! You're making me want to have a bridal shower now! (I probably won't have one) but this one looks so cute and like it was so much fun. Great job finding everything at the dollar store, I wouldn't have been able to tell.
