Real Party: Tiffany Blue and Brown Shower

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It’s nice to be back after a long weekend – a weekend full of bridal bliss for my little sister Ashley.  I was fortunate enough to make the trek down to Dallas to celebrate my sister’s upcoming wedding with family and friends.  Visits home are always too short and we try to pack in too many things, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  A bridal shower during the day, bachelorette party that night… we were crazy busy but had oodles of fun!

If you saw the sneak peak I posted last week, you already know that the shower was Tiffany Blue and Chocolate Brown with little hints of turquoise and green.  Let’s take a look…

I’m really infatuated with paper pom poms, so we lined the ceiling with Tiffany Blue ones.  A large white ‘B’ welcomed guests at the front door.  We also used a ‘B’ monogram throughout the shower on things such as the food tags, favors, and name tags.  The shower invitation was used to create a sign-in sheet that doubles as a nice keepsake for the bride.  For the favors, my older sis baked chocolate chip cookies (the bride’s fav) and bagged them up, attaching a turquoise ribbon and tag.

We played two shower games including “How Well Do You Know the Bride” where everyone answered questions about Ashley.  To spice things up, we had the groom give us his answers ahead of time, so we could see how well he did!

Flower arrangements with white tulips, calla lilies and hyacinths adorned the food table.  The menu included Chicken Caesar Sandwiches, Spinach Dip, Cheese Straws,  cheese and fruit.  Drinks included lemonade, coffee, water and a sparkling white cranberry Prosecco punch.  For sweets, we had chocolate chip cookies, brownies and chocolate chip cupcakes topped with vanilla buttercream icing and drizzled with chocolate.

This shower wouldn’t have come together with out the help of my family (who are so sweet and put up with my craziness).  A special thank you to Sunny, Jenn and Sheila for all of their help making this day so special for Ashley.  And congrats to Ashley and Dustin!  We’re looking forward to the big day!

    This party is gorgeous! Where did you purchase the ribbon…table runner and the monogramed tags? And what would you call the color of the party? Is it Tiffany Blue or Robyn Egg?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    You are very talented.

    Take Care,
    Karena

    Thank you Karena! I would actually call the lighter blue a ‘Tiffany Blue’ and the darker is more of a turquoise. The ribbon was purchased at Hancock Fabrics along with the blue fabric which I used to make the table runners. I designed the monogram tags in Photoshop and printed them on white card stock.

    Hope that info helps!
