A French Soiree

IMG_57111

After a several week hiatus, I am back, hopefully more organized to post regularly without large gaps of MIA-ness. This past weekend I threw a bridal shower for one of my dear friends. I used France as an inspiration for the shower and tried to incorporate soft colors, elegant typography, fun mustache elements, and lots of homemade goodies as best I could with my limited budget.

The bride to be once told me that if she could have a swimming pool filled with champagne she would swim in it all day. Thus, a mimosa bar only seemed appropriate.

In lieu of a traditional guestbook, there was a faux-photobooth set up for guests to take pictures with a message to the bride in front of a giant heart I made using doilies. The DIY mustaches and lips on sticks were fun props for guests to use.

For the shower favors, I bought unpackaged organic soap bars from Whole Foods and wrapped them using kraft paper, lace, and twine. I printed the labels on champagne metallic cardstock and punched them out using a 1.25″ circle craft punch.
