Fresh & Gorgeous Garden Party Bridal Shower

I am in LOVE with the look of this Fresh & Gorgeous Garden Party Bridal Shower styled by the incredibly talented Kristi Murphy, whose site is seriously amazing and if you haven’t already checked out her beautiful designs & super creative DIYs, you are totally missing out. Anyways, what I love about this party look is how uncluttered everything is. Sometimes it can be a little too easy to go overboard when trying to fill empty spaces, but Kristi finds the perfect balance every time! Filing this one away for future inspiration ;).

P.S. Make sure to read through her party details below for links to some FREE printables & DIY tutorials to recreate this look!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Lovely purple bouquet topped naked cake + bright macarons & colorfully tipped white meringues
– DIY flower painted wooden chargers + custom designed banner & scalloped cupcake toppers
– Black & white table runner with pops of bright pink ribbon & custom photo coasters
– Paper flower studded green topiary background + simple green grass centerpieces

Pink & Gold Confetti Bridal Shower + DIY Party Decor

Earlier this summer, Jacque made some DIY centerpieces and decorations for her friend’s pink and gold bridal shower that turned out so super cute and are also budget-friendly (yay!). She wasn’t able to photograph the party, so I asked her to bring one of the centerpieces in afterwards so we could still share it with you guys. That’s one of them above, in case you were wondering. ;)  And the flowers are made out of coffee filters – how awesome is that?!

She also incorporated some of the elements from our Hostess INK Confetti Bridal Shower Collection into the party, so we decided to set up a little post-party inspiration gallery to highlight some of our favorite DIY party decor tips & tricks that work for all sorts of occasions. Here goes!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– DIY coffee filter flowers (with a mix of plain & dyed filters) + golden pom centers
– Simple white gift boxes embellished with decorative paper, washi tape and baker’s twine
– “Love is Sweet” napkin wraps + a gold chevron paper table runner & tray liner
– Tissue confetti decorated frames + DIY tissue tassel chair backs & garlands
– Plastic champagne flutes decked out with gold bases, pink rhinestones, & personalized party flags

Pink & Gold Confetti Bridal Shower + DIY Party Decor

If you’ve followed HWTM for a while, chances are good that you’re very familiar with the good ol’ $0.99 Ikea Tolsby frame. The ones pictured here are dressed up for the occasion with gold spray painted bases + a band of glitter tape.

Pink & Gold Confetti Bridal Shower + DIY Party Decor

Photos are the perfect way to personalize any event! We just added a few pieces of tissue confetti + a party circle to make this everyday gold frame (above) match the party’s confetti theme.

Printable Flamingo Party Silhouettes {+ Summer Blog Hop}

I’m a fan of flamingos all year round, but there’s no denying that they fit in especially well during the warm summer months… which is probably one of the reasons I’ve seen flamingo parties (and flamingo everything else!) popping up so much lately.

So for this month’s (Summer Themed) Free Printable Blog Hop, I decided to offer up these cute & girlie Flamingo Party Silhouettes, as seen on the charger plates in our recent Flamingo Fiesta Party theme. I’m thinking they would also be really cute strung into a banner, used on chair backs, or attached to gift bags. You can now download these silhouettes over on the flamingo party recap post, along with the 8×10 Drink Sign and Blank Tent Cards. (You’ll find download links for all 3 items at the bottom of the post.)

P.S. Make sure to scroll down for lots more (free) summer inspired printables from the other Blog Hop participants below… the designs are all so cute! Here are a few hints on what you’ll find: rootbeer floats, lemonade, summer bucket lists, watercolor, retro sunshine, pool party… sounds a lot like summer fun to me! Enjoy :)

You can never go wrong with crafting, cocktails, and a little sparkle …at least in my book! So when I was recently asked to dream up some creative inspiration for a fun Girls Night In featuring Sauza® Sparkling, last month, this tried-and-true combo is exactly where I started. ;) The weather is warm and summer […]
