My beautiful daughter Jackie!
We rented the napkins, glasses, and silverware and assorted serving trays and chafers from a party rental store. It is most definitely worth looking into, as the cost is either the same or maybe a little more than purchasing them, and they bring an extra look of elegance to your table. The tablecloths were purchased at the party store. We had her shower at the church, and come to find out only afterwards, they had white cloth tablecloths we could have used!! The boxes are super easy to do! We bought them at Hobby Lobby, they are made out of some sort of fiberboard and cost about $3.99 a piece! We bought two colors of paint and blended them together to get as close as we could to the Tiffany color. We went to the ribbon department and found some large width white see through ribbon to use for the ribbon. The other centerpieces were also purchased at Hobby Lobby. The vases are easily found there, and the little white floral picks were in the floral department.
The food that was served consisted of: Cheeseburger Sliders, Pigs in a Blanket, A Fruit Tray, A Cheese Tray, and some Gourmet Cookies!!
We had a "non alcohol" shower since we were in a church setting! One of the glasses had white grape juice, and the other had lemonade! Everyone really enjoyed both drinks!
Jackie's good friend Taylor found these rings at the party supply store as well! They make great napkin rings for any bridal shower!! It's really easy to roll these napkins up and insert them into the rings!
Both of my daughters! Jessica and Jackie!! Jessica was of course her Maid of Honor!
The Bridesmaids! One was not able to be there!
The younger ladies who attended the shower! Us "older ladies" did not get in the pics :)
Her bridesmaids decided to surprise her with a bracelet from Tiffany's. They each chipped in about $20/person so it was a feasable thing to do. It was Taylor's idea, and she ended up calling the Tiffany store in the Dallas Galleria, and they shipped it to her, without even charging shipping charges!! She wrapped it in about six boxes, large to small!! It was hilarious watching her open all of them!
Something else her Maid of Honor did while the Bride To Be was opening gifts was write down everything the Bride to Be said. When she was done, it was read back to her as "What she would say on her wedding night". This has got to be one of the funniest things to do EVER!! Everyone young to old thought it was sooo funny! The Bride will almost always say things like "ohh that's so cute", or "what do you do with this"...so to change the context into what she would say it just a hoot!!
The last two!! Elaine on the right ended up being the winner!! She is the mom of one of the bridesmaids :)
