I know it has been over a month since I have blogged but this week will be full of updates! My Maid of Honor, Melanie, is in town for the week! She is here helping me plan and get stuff ready for our wedding shower in April!
We have been planning this wedding shower for a couple of months now and we decided on a tea party theme! Of course, the colors match those of the wedding.
The item that sparked this theme idea was our unique hot tea favors. Melanie found a website, Design A Tea, where you can design your own tea, loose or in bags, by choosing a base tea, picking your flavors, and adding any herbs and spices. Their delivery was super quick and they even included a complimentary flavor. If you are a hot tea fan, then both of us definitely recommend this website!
We packaged these tea bags in little ivory boxes and labeled them with personalized stickers we ordered from Vistaprint, my go to site for all things printable.
One of the most popular games at showers is the one where you try to refrain from saying a certain key-word, in this case, "wedding". If you hear someone say the key-word, you take their necklace. Whoever has the most at the end of the party, receives a door prize! Today, Melanie and I were on the hunt for the perfect charms to make necklaces out of for this game. We found some plastic wedding rings which worked great!
We also practiced making a few decorations. The first we attempted were the tissue paper poms. This one ended up a little small but practice makes perfect! They will look so cute hanging from the trees at the shower location.
One of the last things we worked on today was the backdrop for the photo booth we will have set up. We took a few colored rectangular table cloths and cut them into strips lengthwise and knotted them onto some string so they wouldn't bunch in the middle. It turned out great so we pulled out some of the props we bought and snapped a few pictures!
Melanie and I had a lot of fun being crafty while still being budget friendly today! Stay tuned for some more wedding shower updates this week. There will be plenty!
As always, thanks for reading!
