Gabi's Bridal Shower
This past Saturday we celebrated Gabi's final days of being a Miss before becoming a Mrs! From the very beginning I knew I wanted to make the theme of her shower: Parisian. She has always loved the French culture and took French in high school, so what better way than bringing a bit of Paris to her.
:) Below are more pictures from that day!
As the guests made their way to the hall there was a table with a tip jar for the newlyweds. I found the printables here. It was so wonderful seeing the guests fill out the paper as they made their way inside. It was a fun starting activity for guests and such a cute way to get advice from the people that are closest to the bride-to-be.
The centerpiece was my favorite! (Look at those details!) The combination of pink tablecloths with the black and white table runner made the room feel elegant. And once the lanterns were added along with the floral decor and hints of gold tea light holders just made you feel like you were in Paris.
Smiles all around :)
See what I mean! What a perfect smile! :)
We played a couple games such as He Said, She Said, Guess the Dress and Mum's the Word. We started off with Mum's the Words, which is basically Taboo but Bridal edition. It was the perfect game to start the festivities. Everyone put their game faces on. The best part was seeing the groom's family competitive side. They LOVE Taboo and took this game to a whole new level (my kind of people, haha).
For the Bridal Shower favors I found these macaron shaped bath bombs. They were the perfect Parisian touch to send away with the guests. I also made a little card to go with the gift saying " From Gabriella's shower to yours."
Thank you again to all those who came out to celebrate. It was truly a day filled with memorable moments that Gabi will always remember. Here's to the future Mrs. Jones!
