birdies and gingham {one}

Time to show you what I've been working on for months! All photography is by Amy of Shutterly Lovely. She did an AMAZING job, I just love the photos. My friends helped A LOT on many of the details, so I don't want to take all the credit. I couldn't have done it without them.

The bridal shower was held on the patio of a small coffee shop called Cafe Ventana. It rained nearly the entire time, but we were sheltered luckily. Centerpieces were squares of cut fabric, birdie name tag favors, and mason jars with coffee beans and daisies. For the guestbook, I had guests bring marriage advice on a notecard and tape it into a vintage book I picked up. The book is actually German text, which is probably better since the point is not to read it! For the shower game, I replicated this adorable quiz, (which was inspired by this). It was my favorite part, the couples' answers were SO GREAT and everyone loved the game. For prizes, the winners could choose a vintage coffee mug.

More details and images later today, don't miss it!

Wow! The whole party looks great. I'm wish I could throw a bridal party or baby shower, it looks like so much fun. I really enjoy your blog.

I love all the details! Could you send me the He Said... She Said questions, or post them in this comment section? I would like to use this same idea for a Bridal Shower I am hosting this week.

Hi! Just wondering if you'd share how you made the letters - I absolutely love them! Would love to make some for our house. Thanks!
