Cute, Classy, Crafty Bridal Shower

This weekend, I hosted a bridal shower for one of my friends, and got the opportunity to do some fun planning a crafting!  It was lots of work, but I had a blast doing it!

Here are a few details of our "tiffany blue"/aqua and black, classy bridal shower!

The Menu:

Tortilla Roll-ups
Spinach and Artichoke dip/Pita Chips
Chicken Salad Bites (Made by yours truly)
Cheese Tray
Pasta Salad
Chocolate Fondue (with fruit, marshmallows, pretzels, and graham crackers)
Strawberry Spritzers
Cake (the BEAUTIFUL cake was a gift from the M.O.B.)

The Games:
So everyone could get to know each other, we started out having each lady introduce herself, tell how she knew the bride, and tell a funny story about the bride and/or give a piece of advice.  As we did this, we all added a bead to a necklace for the bride to keep!

The came "Going to the Chapel" song lyric game.  The fill in the blank game was lots of fun and broke the ice for everyone!

Finally, we wrapped up with the traditional "How Well Do You Know the Bride?" game (oldie but goodie)!

Afterwards, we settled down for some cake and gifts!  The Bride got lots of wonderful gifts including 3 salad bowls... anyone else having trouble with their Target gift registry?

Crafty Decor:

Yarn Covered Wreath with Fabric Flowers decorated the front door

A "Bride" Banner for the Living Room

Tissue Paper Balls to hang above the buffet table

It was a wonderful party (although a lot of work), and I'm so glad we were able to give it to her!   

What was the best shower you've ever had, hosted, or been to?  What made it great?
