More From My Sister’s Bridal Shower…

Looking for ideas to quench any bridal thirst?  For the bridal shower we recently hosted for my sister, we decided to have a little fun with the cocktails and beverages by dressing them up a bit! 

Take a look…

Previously, I showed you the fabulous customized Jones Soda bottles we served.  Well, as if they weren’t adorable enough, we also decorated straws with white paper confetti flowers for guests to drink with!  I cannot take all of the credit for that idea, however – as the crafty ladies over at Prim & Pixie originally inspired me to create with images of their butterfly straws.  It seemed like an easy enough DIY project, so you know I had to do it!

Beverages also included a pink grapefruit champagne punch and a bowl of mimosasFlutes were rimmed with pink sugar and filled with cotton candy, which dissolved as guests poured their punch ~ for a little added sweetness!  We also created pink and orange beaded wine charms for each flute glass, with a heart-shaped charm in the middle that said, “LOVE”.

Keep checking back, as I’ll be posting more pictures and details from the bridal shower!  If you’ve missed the previous posts, you can find them HERE and HERE.  Cheers!

  2. Cutest idea with the flutes! I am SO not creative…couldn’t pull something this great off in a million years! I saved these pictures so I can ‘borrow’ your idea for the next shower I am involved in. 🙂

  3. Awww…thank you both so much!!! Your kind comments made me blush like the color of the pink grapefruit punch…lol.

    It was SO much fun planning this shower…and since I’m a pack rat, I’ve saved all the decor and craft supplies from the shower so now my craft closet is um, well, basically overflowing.

    Some days I wonder if I’ll ever get organized?!? Until then, I enjoy being “domestically disabled” – lol.
