THE BRIDE TO BE:
|My beautiful niece|
I found this digital invite on Etsy that was simple and perfect!

I honestly had no idea what I was going to do for the shower until I got the invitation figured out... Once the invitation was chosen it was pretty simple!
|I made this wreath for the front door out of a set of vintage lace curtains I purchased a long time ago for a future project... I made the banner out of wire, chalkboard fabric and pearls.|
|My niece is so artsy and I wanted to do something for her along those same lines... My sister in law and I found this shop on Etsy that recreated a cute photo of my niece and her fiance. I also picked a lot of flowers from my friends yard that day to use for the shower.|
|The cute couple - picture from HERE|
|I found these black napkins at Target - and then I wrote on it with chalk! Perfect!|
|I made a chalkboard picture with the chalkboard fabric as well. More flowers from my friends yard.|
|I tried to make a cute lace bow garland, but the bows are kind of heavy so they don't lay right when you get them up... A for effort I guess...|
|I had hopes to making quite a few lace garlands, and I just couldn't get them done, I made this one literally minutes before I walked out of the door for the shower!|
|This was also the first time I have used my vintage glass appetizer plates and matching punch cups!!! Love!!|

|My other beautiful niece!|
I wanted to try and keep it pretty simple and finally narrowed it down to three desserts, I wanted a creamy, cake-y, and a crunchy; Oreo Cheesecake, Berry Cream trifle, and cookies.
|Originally, I was just going to serve water because who wants to drink something sweet with desserts? Then I thought of watermelon lemonade at the last minute because it isn't sweet, just very refreshing, light, and yummy!|
My niece didn't want very many games, so we only had one game and the advice sheet below that people could fill out. I thought Kelsey could read them later or at the shower whatever she wanted to do.
|I had downloaded a free chalkboard digital paper a while ago that I was glad I had when I started making the place cards and the advice card for the shower. You can find the free digital download HERE.|
|You can see their mouths are full of very large gumballs... You can see the purple gumballs on a table in between them.|
|The final gumballs. My niece obviously got more right than wrong!|
|I just wrapped up some of the cookies from the shower and tied them with lace|
