From the Bride-to-be

All of these lovely details were done by both of my matron of honors. A total DIY bridal shower! It was hosted in the backyard of a family friends in Baltimore, OH. With the help of my mother, and family friends the event went off without a hitch! Our 1969 Ford truck is a fun little adventure mobile we bought a little over a year ago and the perfect accessory.

This is such a great idea for your wedding as well. Simply put camel in fondu pots and have all the drippings on the side. Such a fun way dessert idea. Don't you think? The menu had calligraphy written on a recycled piece of wood. They had Greek salad, cucumber sandwiches, hummus and pita, fruit kabobs and tzatziki sauce.

Budget Friendly Bridal Shower Decor Ideas

Card tables were lined with kraft paper and some basic black chairs were jazzed up with streamers. Each guest had a paper strawberry crate filled with homemade cookies wrapped with a bow that said forever on it. They sat on paper plates accompanied by plastic gold flatware.
The centerpieces were sticks held together by twine and baby lamb's ear placed in the center. Affordable, crafty and the bride can totally take this home. easy bridal shower decorations
