...the season for weddings. Spring and Summer bring out brides in force. These young (and not so young) ladies take advantage of the promise of beautiful weather for their once n a lifetime big day. They plan and plan in hopes that the day will be just what they (and their mother) have dreamed of since the day they were born. OK OK so the bride has only been dreaming of it since they were like five when they were probably a flower girl for the first (and maybe only) time. Their first walk down the aisle with flowers sets thoughts in motion for colors and flowers and all the cake they will get to eat at their own wedding.
What brings all of this to mind? I attended the bridal shower for my son's sister-in-law. YES that poor mom has planned two weddings within a year. Better her than me. :o) So instead of my daughter-in-law having to be the center of attention, she gladly played back up by planning a beautiful shower. This is a very DIY family and there were some amazing decorations following the theme of burlap and lace with a color scheme of aqua and peach.
There were simple burlap table runners and burlap wreaths with burlap flowers. There were doilies of all shapes and sizes. Beautiful simple vases made from aqua colored canning jars will filled with babies breath and adorned with a simple lace ribbon tied around it. A LOVE banner handmade with Burlap was the back drop for the bride while opening gifts. She sat on a vintage side chair painted aqua with a burlap seat. ALL of this DIY ideas that came from Pinterest.
Do you PIN? If not, it is a great way to dream away time looking for party ideas, fashion ideas, decorating ideas, inspirational sayings etc. You can share ideas with friends and maybe even meet a few new friends along the way.
Why do I pin? I started pinning just to stock up creative party ideas I find while surfing the web. But it has become much more. I plan to use Pinterest for Inspiration Boards for Creative Concept Events as an easy way for party hostesses to see ideas for events all in one spot. You can see the beginnings of my very first inspiration board here.
If you are on Pinterest, let me know as I would love to follow you, so send me the link to your boards and I will pop on by.
Until next time...keep on creating.
