DIY: Tea Party Bridal Shower Decor.

Over the past weekend my Mom and I threw my sister a tea party themed bridal shower ! The day turned out lovely and was the perfect celebration of the quickly approaching nuptials, with the most special women.

My Mom and I are both fairly right brained—so we love any opportunity to get crafty and this occasion was no different. We decided to divide and conquer in an effort to make the day as beautiful as possible. Pinterest became our best friend —and allowed for us to find plenty of budget friendly DIY crafts.

Craft #1:

Flower Crowns—

Flower crowns have been appearing all over the place lately and with spring in season and a tea party theme, I thought they would be a great addition to offer guests without hats and make for cute girly pictures.

Another little décor piece—the initials of the bride and groom to be ( M & S )! They are having a rustic, chic themed wedding at a little winery…so lots of little touches of natural mossy succulents paired with woods and rod iron.

Overall it was such a lovely turn out–the day was full of lots of fun, love good eats. My favorite moment of the entire day was below when my Mom gave my sister a box of letters she has been writing for my sis since she was born–such an emotional and beautiful moment.
