Shabby chic vintage bridal shower

I have something beautiful to share with you all especially for those who are planning a bridal shower this year. Jodi Miller, of Jodi Miller Photography, had one of the most creative and thoughtful bridal showers I’ve ever seen. It was like a wedding! No joke. Her bridal shower, planned by her sister and mom, was set outdoors on a warm summer afternoon in Southwest, Virginia. The shower was a team effort, but the decor was styled from her sister-in-law, Lynn of Sunshowers and Rainshine. Jodi incorporated a lot of her wedding details into the shower. She used the china they collected and the napkins, furniture, burlap and chalk boards they made for their wedding. I hope you enjoy the details in this bridal shower and use them for some inspiration.

How simple are those paper hearts? They were purchased from Paper Source and strung from trees that hung over the tables and guests. The tables were very simply decorated with touches of her style. Burlap was laid over a white tablecloth. White chairs were used. The table setting incorporated the shabby chic china, silverware, floral napkins and mason jars for glassware.

The flowers were all fresh from Jodi’s mom’s garden. I love the subtle colors in the arrangements with pops of purple and magenta. They also used turquoise mason jars and shabby chic tea kettle as vases. How creative!

A growing trend in DIY weddings is using furniture you would have your house. Jodi used a dresser drawer as the gift table. She made a “LOVE” banner tying in the blues and floral look.

Sweet as Honey Housewarming Party

“Bee” prepared to be amazed by this “Sweet as Honey” housewarming party designed by Kori Clark of Paper & Pigtails. I’m overly excited to show you all these beautiful details of her party, plus all the beautiful photos. From the handmade invitations that included a wooden honey dipper down to the Honey Lager beer,  Lori executed this party oh-so-perfectly. Pretty Tasty Things is thrilled to start showcasing photo inspiration for your own party. Enjoy all the photos and I hope they inspire you to “bee” a little creative.

Lori had a honey tasting station on the food table. She had variations of honey, from Blueberry Honey to Wildflower Honey, in individual glass “honey pots” with honey wheat pretzels and breadsticks to taste them with. How creative is that?

Everything on the dessert bar was focused on honey. She also incorporated treats for the sweet tooth. I loved the colors and composition of it all.

Even the knives for the cheese and honey had silver bees on them!
