While we were back in Iowa, my sister and a group of close friends and neighbors hosted me a lovely bridal shower. They went with a vintage theme and executed it to a T. Everything from the invitations to the dishes and decor had a garden tea party in mind. I feel like my sister, my Matron of Honor and mastermind behind the shower, should really be doing this series of posts, but I’ll do my best to share with you all of the creative and thoughtful touches from the shower.
Adorable invitation sent to the shower guests
Rachel created these invitations using SendOutCards – she’s an avid user and creates unique, one-of-a-kind cards for birthdays, Christmas and everything in-between! I think one of the biggest benefits of using this service is that you can upload the names and addresses to be printed directly on the postcard or envelope itself. They arrive in the mail looking clean and professional – I’m definitely going to have to give it a try after seeing how great these invitations turned out!

Adorable serving pieces
These teacups belong to our church where the shower was held – they carried out the theme perfectly and everybody loved sipping coffee from these dainty pieces!
Gorgeous flowers by Lori
The flowers were amazing. They were a gift from one of the hostesses, Jen – she had the local florist arrange fresh picked blossoms in blue Ball jars. They were stunning! I wish I would have gotten a better photo of the whole arrangement – the Ball jars have a new home in my living room and I absolutely love them!
Guests could guess my age in photos from over the years - my bridesmaid Jessie got nearly all of them right!
While I may not have chosen these photos myself (braces, 80′s hair and matching flannel nightgowns to name a few), it was fun to reminisce and laugh at some really great memories.
I can’t help but smile looking back on such a fun day – I’ll fill you in on some more special touches in another post!
