Tea, Tulips and Bridal Showers

The table centerpieces...tulips and lemons, all cradled in a clear paint can. My first inspiration for the whole thing was a lemon.

I apologize for the shortage of posts lately, but I have been so busy planning a bridal shower for a great friend of mine, actuall I'm the maid of honor, so the pressure was on! When I started, I decided to go with a modern tea theme, with the colors of white, grey and yellow. My friend is very modern, so no pink and no "fru fru" as she put it could I use. After, a woman that is an interior designer asked me if she could recommend me to the church to help with their future wedding planning and set-up. I was honored, that someone would find something from little ol' me that amazing and told me that I have a "flair" with things...who would of thought! I was just happy that my friend loved it so much, because after all, it was her special day.

The table settings for the tables...
They included candles for the guests to take home with greenery wrapped in the napkins. The cards and coordinating pencils at the top of each setting were for one of the games.
I made the hearts on the tea bags from a heart paper punch and scrapbooking papers.

The menu included angel food cake, strawberries, a homemade marshmellow and cream cheese topping for them. Egg salad and cucumber sandwiches, chocolate covered strawberries of bride and grooms (thank you, Rhonda), a cookie bar, hot tea and lemonade. I had some suzanni type fabric at home with greys, white and yellow...so I used that as runners on the tables. I needed more plate stands, so I made some with some .50 cent glass candlesticks from the thrift store and used clear glass plates in varying sizes on top purchased for $1.00 from the grocery store. Couldn't have done it without my friend Gorilla Glue! All the other plates, pitchers or items that I had lying around my house.

The drink table included condiments for the tea, and yes, even the cups had ribbon borders. A last minute detail that turned out beautifully.

The gift table...

She was having fun with the tissue poms I made.

Thank you, my dear friend, for allowing me to give you something special, that was so much fun for me to do and hope it was all you had dreamed of for your shower...
