So my friend got married! Huzzah. And I was helping to put her bridal shower together with her twin sister. We knew that she loved Paris (and all things French) so we decided to throw a Paris is Love bridal shower. Here is a bunch of pictures of all the details that we put together for the bridal shower.
I also did a small Eiffel Tower design on a paper weight. And there were lots and lots of pictures of the happy couple around to decorate. (Yeah, we stole the pictures from the wedding decorations. But hey, they totally fit in with our bridal shower decor!)
We also had a lot of pictures of Paris and of the bride that we put up all over. The extra pictures were used under the vases and picture frames. The extra Paris decor was borrowed from Becky’s house…since she decorated with it.
This was my favorite part. I spray painted clothespins to be black. Then we strung ribbon up all over the room in a zig-zag pattern. And we clipped some pictures that I mounted on to different black and white scrapbook paper across the ribbons. This looked amazing. Half of the pictures were of Becky with various people. The other half were of famous places in Paris. I loved how this particular thing pulled the whole theme together.
One of my other favorite things was these Paris/Becky jars that I made. I got five different glass jars with music stanzas on them. One side of the jars has “Paris” and the other side of the jars says “Becky”. We had the white chocolate Eiffel Towers in them.
So one of the games that we played was a variation of the bridal shower game where you ask the Bride a whole bunch of questions about the groom. But this time we gave these cards to all the guests. “Corriger” means “right” and “Mal” is
“wrong” in French. If the guest thought the bride was correct in her answer they would hold up the “Corriger” card. If they thought she was wrong they would hold up the “Mal” card.
