Bridal Shower

My bff just got engaged (congrats Melissa!) and surprise! The wedding is only 6 short weeks away. What can I say, she goes after what she wants.  As token girly and crafty bridesmaid (the one who says "Oh, we can make your bouquets, I saw it on Martha!"), I'm setting out to throw the girliest and prettiest bridal shower ever, in just a few weeks. My inspiration:


My plan:

1. Pick a theme. I love the idea of a "Plates and Panties" theme and since I know they're starting a new home and want to get to making babies, she'll be needing both!

2. Invite guests. Found the cutest invitations at Seattle store Paper Delights. I'll show pictures soon!

3. Pick food, decorations, and favors/game prizes. I'm thinking simple is best, but also items that can be reused. And favors that aren't too expensive but still fun to get.

4. Execute the plan and party down! Well I guess that will be at the bachelorette party, only a week later!

Have you thrown a successful bridal shower? What did you do for favors? For games?

And don't worry, I'll be sure to share the final results!
