I recently helped put together and host a kitchen inspired bridal shower for a dear family friend who loves to bake and loves bling! Her favorite color is eggplant purple and her wedding colors were eggplant and silver. We did as many DIY extras as we could and tried to make it as personal and special as possible. The mom-in-law and sister-in-law and I had a blast preparing the menu, putting together the decor and taste testing all 7 of the home baked mini cupcakes! Here’s a peak at the party (and please don’t mind some of the photos, lighting was a little bit of an issue for picture taking!):
[The game prizes were these Rosemary Infused Salt Favors.]
And for an extra special touch, we had all the guests send in favorite family recipes and we compiled a cookbook for the bride-to-be (we handed out copies as favors for all the guests, too)! I don’t have a photo of the actual cookbook (I failed at picture taking on many accounts this time). But here is what the cover looks like:
Have you ever hosted a bridal shower and what DIY’s did you do? I would love to see pictures and hear your fabulous ideas!
UPDATE: below are some photos that didn’t make it into the original post: the invitation, love banner and thank you cards.
