My fiancé and I got engaged in January, and we are finding out that wedding planning is a lot of fun. It's also a lot of work and coordination, so it's a good thing I had a head start. As an employee at Pear Tree Greetings, I have to admit that I've been eyeing our wedding invitations and thinking about bridal shower ideas for quite some time. Wouldn't you, if you were in my shoes?
Bridal showers are usually hosted by a friend or relative of the bride, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help guide them in the direction you’d like for your bridal shower. For me it was an easy choice. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been doomed to be a terrible cook. In my Easy Bake Oven days I was confusing baking soda with baking powder. From there, it hasn’t gotten any better – confectioner’s sugar, brown sugar, white sugar, why are there so many sugars? And don’t even get me started on the different oils. That is why this Ingredients for Love Recipe Bridal Shower Invitation is not only my favorite, it will actually be very useful for me. Each invitation comes with a blank recipe card for guests to fill out and bring to the shower. Perfect.
Aside from collecting lots of new recipes, this invitation is also the inspiration for the party decorations and food. The bright pink and orange colors are perfect for a springtime bridal shower. Cover the tables in pink and orange linens to brighten the room, and bring in bright pink balloons to decorate throughout the room and orange poms to hang from the ceiling. Pink flowers in clear vases are also a perfect touch to accent each table. Top off the party with fresh fruit skewers, a tasty pasta salad and cupcakes for all to enjoy.
