Selected as Party of the Day on May 15th!


Cindy Paperie By Cindy Paperie   in Bridal/Wedding Shower


Party Recap

The bride is getting married in Cancun this summer so it was perfectly fitting to incorporate Spanish theme into the bridal shower. Taking advantage of the sunny weather, the event was held outdoors in the backyard. Tables were under a canopy, decorated with pink/red lanterns, and black and white stripes. A paperflower backdrop set the mood for the general theme and a perfect place to capture guests in photos. Best decor was pineapple Palm tree w/ leaves to decorate a fruit tray. Guests ate Spanish foods, drinks, and desserts. All guests got a flower to put in their hair. And Spanish music playing in the air.

    Hi Linda: the back drop was made by building 2 posts attached to a garden trellis cut to size (2x8ft i think). The flowers were attached using those teeth grip ties. They were bound to the trellis. Purchased fabric from Hobby Lobby. :)
