Blue box love...

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

My sister in law C is getting married in less than 2 weeks so we are all in pre wedding mode right now.We kicked off the festivities this past weekend with a bridal shower hosted by myself and sisters S, R & S. I was inspired by Amy Atlas's design here and of course, a touch of blue for good measure. The event was a hit with lots of laughs, tears of joy and a very happy bride. A great beginning wouldn't you agree C?
Okay so I have been obessesed with these balloons. Seriously, couldn't find them ANYWHERE. No local party store carreid this size.Lucky me found this killer balloon website (Bargain Ballons). Ordered online & got them the next day (now that is GREAT service). I ordered coloured ones for my kids (you know, in case I need random balloon props for an emergency photo shoot or something).
So I ordered hydrangeas from my local florist and popped them into some blue bags and of course labelled them with the bride's name. They looked terrific in a sea of blue.
Our perfect little giveaways that we ordered from Amber courtesty of her shop on Etsy. These little blue boxes were filled with yummy candy ring pops and were a hit with all the ladies. Everyone loves getting a little blue box.
 We didn't forget the sparkle (from Dollarama).
These guys tasted as good as they looked. Mini cupcakes from Lavish Cupcakes.
 My SIL C striking a pose in her lovely Karen Millen ensemble. Yes, I made bust out her supermodel moves for me.
Sadly no glamorous model shots from me...but I had to share my shift dress from I adored wearing this dress because it had such great texture. I didn't even mind that  R told me I looked like a giant doily. My earrings were from Regina at NYLightmetals...I felt so pretty wearing them! In fact, Regina is celebrating a grand opening of her new website and is offereing 15% on all her accessories for the first week (Just type: Special15 at checkout.). Yes, I know...too tempting eh?

What a pretty spread!

Who knew you couldn't get big balloons in Canada...I was going to ask where you picked them up! Good to know!

Both dresses are very pretty..I do not agree with the doily comment. Looks like it was a fun party (planning and hosting).
