We were invited to 8 weddings between August of 2018 and February of 2019. All in a row. And I’m a bridesmaid in 4 of them! Meaning a lot of fun, planning, and doing some crafty favors for people I love.
Sometimes a crafty favor means making a donut tower for a bridal shower, other times it means doing hand-calligraphy addressing for all of your sister’s wedding invitations. Quick tip for everyone: I don’t know how to say no. So just corner me, and your wish will be granted.
My beautiful friend Dana got married last month, and we decided to throw her a little bridal shower brunch in the city since she wasn’t having a traditional shower and didn’t have a wedding party. Dana loves a lot of things, but she’s particularly enthralled by cats, colors, and candy (or any sweets). So somehow that became the theme! I designed some fun menus for the brunch, my friend Lana grabbed some bright blooms and balloons, and then we met up to snag some confetti-ed donuts as our makeshift cake (above).
Then my sister’s wedding is rapidly approaching this November, so we just threw her a shower this past weekend down by my parents in Pennsylvania. We went Tuscan theme: lemons and olives. It all came out beautifully!
Next up: my friend Katie’s wedding in October in Lexington, KY. Getting so excited for this! I designed her invitation suite with an amazing sketch she found of her venue.
Then a French bistro shower for my maid of honor, Sarah, and an English tea party shower for my college best friend, Amanda, both in November. Looking forward to all of these showers, not to mention bachelorette parties!
