This week we’re featuring this fun scrabble themed bridal shower my family threw for my cousin’s fiance. Ryan and Nikki love to play games, and all family holidays and weekends involve charades, cards, and trivia games. I thought it would be fun to do a Games Shower theme, with a small emphasis on Scrabble. With scrabble being […]
I have always loved planning parties for friends and family, spending far too much time researching themes & ideas and making/creating/assembling decorations, food, and games. No detail is too small, and no amount of prep time is ever enough to do everything that comes into my head. When I first started elevencupcakes, it was with […]
The beautiful bride-to-be had requested no crazy shower games, so I kept it simple with one fun game that I was sure nobody had ever played at a shower before. It didn’t take long to play, which left lots of time for mingling, eating, and opening gifts! This bride-to-be chair banner was created the same […]
I wanted to make a focal point at the shower that incorporated photos of the couple. This instagram photo banner ended up being the perfect decoration that tied in all of the colors and showcased the Bride-to-be’s beautiful engagement photos. I printed all of the photos 4×6, and uploaded photos of letters as jpegs to […]
A few weeks ago I threw a dear friend a Bridal Shower. I had sent her many theme ideas, and jokingly added ‘Sparkly Teal’, her favorite color, to the list. It shouldn’t have been a surprise when that’s the one she choose. We did a morning brunch complete with a cereal bar and mimosa bar. […]
If I could, I would live inside of Kate Spade’s website. There is something about the whimsical colors and playful charm that makes me happy. In my head, my wedding is full of color and confetti and bold patterns. I was inspired the other day to come up with some birthday and Bridal Shower invitations […]
Enjoy the rest of the pictures from this Kissing Fish Bridal Shower! Happy Planning,
The Bride-to-be’s awesome Maid of Honor made this amazing kissing fish cake and cupcakes for the party. Check out all of her cakes here.
While the bride-to-be was busy opening gifts, guests played gift Bingo. Print off our free Bingo sheet here and have guests fill in what gifts they think the bride will be opening (like a toaster). As the bride-to-be opens gifts, guests try to make a Bingo! Happy Planning,
One of my favorite shower games is a ‘purse scavenger hunt.’ We divided the shower guests into groups (by table) and told everyone to take out their purse or handbag. Give the host a list of random items you might find in a purse or handbag. As items are called, the first table to bring […]
When guests first arrived at the shower, they were asked to write a note of encouragement to the bride-to-be on lined paper. The notes, along with pictures from the shower, were later put into a small scrap book and given to the bride at the wedding. It is a fun memento that she will have and can […]
The bride asked a few family members to bake homemade cookies to give away as favors at this shower. I simply added favor tags to brown boxes and guests got to choose which cookies and treats they would like to take home. It was a huge hit! The favor tags for these boxes are now available in […]
I wanted to do something special for over the dessert table. After a little research, I found this posterized collage technique on Happy Together. I used a picture from the couple’s engagement session and used an art canvas instead of a wood plaque. It turned out great and was a wonderful addition to the wall.
Inspired by these great centerpieces on One Charming Party, we made ‘fish bowls’ for each table using blue paper and tiny fish cut-outs in glass vases. Tissue paper flowers were put inside, and the pictures from the couples engagement session were displayed on tables around the room.
This party was a lot of fun to decorate for. The groom’s favorite color is orange (go Texas!) and so we used orange and blue as the main colors. The shower was at a beautiful restaurant, so the only thing we did was the dessert table and the guest’s tables. We collected glass vases and jars […]
Invitations for this party were kept fun and simple, using the orange and blue color scheme, and the ‘kissing fish’ logo that was used throughout the party. This Kissing Fish Shower Invitation is now available in our etsy shop, along with the other Kissing Fish printables! Happy Planning,
Next week we will be sharing all the details to a recent ‘Kissing Fish’ Bridal Shower. Have a great weekend!
