A Pink Bridal Shower

Last Saturday I hosted my sister's bridal shower. The theme colors were pink, white, and metallics. I know, I know...no one would have ever thought that I'd chose those colors...
:::Anyways here's some random pics from the day (thanks Ariel):::
I got these cute pink and white stripe straws on Esty.
I've had the vintage tablecloth for years and it was so much fun to be able to use it for such a special occasion. I also got to use my new-to-me vintage coffee maker.

I also used some of my favorite vintage black and white patterned restaurant ware.

 I made a "True Love" banner using some free printables from Martha Stewart.

old friends and new

I cut out hearts on embossed gold paper from AC Moore and hung them from the chandelier.

where else would I ever be able to decorate with a pink bird?

my mom and me before the shower started
lots of details - the banner on the dining room mirror, Ariel & Gary's engagement photos, and I finally got to use the vintage glass dome using moss and a picture of Gariel (one of the best "celebrity names" ever haha)

lovely godly ladies

I bought these cute little frames (place cards) from AC Moore in the wedding section.
I just printed off some cute quotes to use in the frames.

we had sweet biscuits with all kinds of toppings - sugared strawberries,
raspberries, lemon curd, powdered sugar, and homemade whipped cream.

I used all kinds of cute vintage pink glasses and mugs

it was such a fun day with so many friends

I bought cute heart shaped candy / chocolate molds from AC Moore and made candy pops for favors. I also made homemade marshmallows - perfect for those who have a gluten allergy or dairy intolerance

For party favors I made these cute little pink and white candy buttons. I saw this blog post last year and fell in love with the mold. I bought it and then forgot about it until recently. I must say, they came out really cute! I made a few with green in honor of Ariel's Irish fiance'

of course I just had to use my vintage gold flatware

I used a vintage 1940's pink satin bedspread (that Caleb would never let me use haha) underneath a vintage white cut out tablecloth that was my grandma's
