You saw the invitation that set the tone:
Sticking to our champagne theme, circles were a huge part of the design, along with the wedding colors coral and sea foam. In designing this shower, I learned something very pivotal that will stick with me for every project moving forward. Are you ready?….Keep things simple. Yeah, as much as you may want to go gang busters with a bunch of different things, your vision will be easier to understand and execute if it is streamlined to only a few things. We had one game, simple centerpieces, a few banners that directed the guests, signage, three colors, and four fonts that I stuck to. That’s it. Take a look:
|Guests were greeted when they entered Tazza Italian Ristorante by a champagne bar.
The circle garland signage was easy to make too…circle cutter to cut circles, printed letters cut out and hot glued pretty twine to it. Easy peasy.
|3 different juices with complimenting fruit garnishes.|
|I created the labels that were tied to each of the juice carafes.|
|Gifts were brought unwrapped per the bride’s request. Who wants to waste time opening up gifts! Save a tree!|
|Centerpieces were wine decanters to tie in the bubbly theme, and flowers were provided by the amazing Viviana of Petal Play Design.|
|Favors were a mini bottle of champagne with this cute baggy containing a lip balm and bath salts from Sweet Pea Floral in Ann Arbor, MI.|
|Guests were asked to sign a very large champagne bottle that mom painted dark gray.|
|Something to open on their 1st anniversary!|
|I made these cute cards for our one and only game.|
|And mom put pics of the bride and groom in these glass hanging bubbles.|
|And together we had the game “What Age?” where guests had to guess the ages of the bride and groom in each picture. It was a total hit!|
|Another hit…the macaroons by Artesa Bakery!|
