(Left) Using the blue, brown and white color patterns from the invitation, the centerpiece was accessorized with a blue and brown dotted ribbon. Large “diamond” baubles were strewn across the table for a little extra flair.
(Right) As a token of appreciation for the guests at the shower, each guest received a Love Measuring Spoon, in a brown box. The gift was tied together with blue and brown ribbon along with a bag of personalized M&M’s. They were placed on a light blue place setting with brown napkins.
(Below) The cake… is a masterpiece. The cake was made by a local bakery, who applied the blue accents to the white frosted cake. An old doll couch was painted black, with the blue and white gifts created out of paper. Using a Barbie doll with wedding gown accessories and black sunglasses, the cake recreated the invitation design theme. It was displayed next to the invitation that the guests received in the mail.
A little creativity in the planning will ensure that your guests will be discussing the shower or party with all their friends! Be careful though! If you do a really good job, you might become the official party planner!
