We just hosted Nel's Bridal Shower, and it was a success!
Since she and her new husband will soon be off to Paris for their honeymoon, we thought it would be fitting to throw her a Parisian Soirée.
The color scheme was turquoise with black and white damask designs.
We prepared the French inspired food and drinks.
The chocolate fondue provided a sweet touch.
Our talented friend, Marcia from The Shop Around the Corner sent us the most beautiful tags that we used as favors.
They arrived in elegance and even came with a lovely scent! She personalized the back of the tags with Nel and her fiancé's name.
For the decor, we printed black and white photos from our own trip to Paris as the photo line centerpiece.
I made tags for guests to write special marriage advice for Nel and hang on the photo line when finished.
We purchased three dazzling dress forms from our friend, Anita at Castles Crowns and Cottages and displayed them throughout the party. The skirts really brought out the pop of color we needed.
After some final touches and decor, the Soirée was ready!
The gift table was filled with pretty presents for a pretty lady.
Our aunt made Nel the ring bearer pillow out of the fabric used for our mom's wedding dress 32 years ago. Isn't it gorgeous?
One of our friends at the party created a "flower bouquet" out of the gift tissues and bows for Nel to practice walking down the aisle during the rehearsal. So creative!
After all of the party planning and preparing, it was so nice to relax and enjoy each other's company...we celebrated, laughed, and helped prepare Nel for her upcoming big day... Only 4 weeks away!
