Favours-mini Claus Porto soaps (love these luxury soaps & they're a nod to my Portuguese heritage)
Personalized lipbalms from Beaucoup, a nod to my beauty blog & love of makeup.
Stamps are a D.I.Y bride-to-be's best friend, easy to use & re-usable. Just customize the ink pads to your own colour palette! I picked these up at Michael's Craft store in the $1.50 clearance bin.
the groom-to-be hard at workMenu-one of my favourite wedding blogs is Ruffled & that is where I came across the template/idea for my menu + the idea for the IKEA double-sided picture frame which costs $.99 perfect look for my retro themed shower! Two Brunettes designed the actual template, check out their site for more inspiration. The menu graphics were the PERFECT colours as it allowed me to expand on my chosen bridal shower palette of yellow, green & minty blue.
The menu's printed at Walmart Photo Center in one hour, easy to do & colour quality vivid!
Invites- template purchased from Apple Blossom Print, check out my post here.
And lastly flowers, I chose colours that would tie in my colour palette too! Bought retro-inspired vases at Goodwill & brought them in to a local inexpensive florist, told them what flowers I liked & colour. Sometimes its best to let the experts put the small touches together hence the florist!
a clean, fresh streamlined look is the end result
entrance: a wire mannequin form that I dressed up with a retro kitchen tea towel & vintage ribbon to tie into an apron. Guest/picture book and shower favours, as guests arrived I took a picture which I will develop & put into the book next to their signature.
Loved the flowers!
Hope you got inspired by my retro themed Bridal Shower!
