- The Purse Game (printable found here)
- The Clothespin Game – our guests could not say wedding, Bill or honeymoon! I used a raspberry colored Sharpie to doodle hearts on the clothespins
- The Name game – each guest got a famous woman’s name taped to their back (TV personalities, cartoon characters, political figures, musicians, fictional characters, etc.) and had to ask yes/no questions to other guests to try to figure out who they were.
For a crate for cards on the gift table, I white washed a wooden crate and aged it a bit with brown ink. Using a few scalloped circle kraft card stock punches cut in half, I created a mini garland and connected the half circles with jump rings (used in jewelry making) and attached it to the crate. I used the same little bird stamp and letter stickers for the finishing touches.
I made the “love birds” banners using Pick Your Plum wooden pennants, fabric scraps and chipboard letter stickers. To make the cute flower rosettes at either end, I used three kraft cupcake wrappers (each one folded in half and glued together in a circle), a large scalloped circle punched from scrapbook paper and a felt flower purchased at Michael’s.
And here she is … my mom, my Little Madre, Mum …
… I can’t wait to watch her walk down the aisle in 6 days, watch her slip a ring on Bill’s finger, see that relationship status change from single to married, hear “I now pronounce you husband and wife”, be a witness as they start their new life together and celebrate as God’s promise to her is completed!!
P.S. All of the amazing photos of the shower were taken by the lovely and talented Linda Wilson from Linda Wilson Photography. If you are in the Central FL area and need an experienced, amazingly patient, detail oriented photographer … Linda is your girl!
