Erinn’s “Something Blue” bridal shower: the details

These are the details from my cousin Erinn’s “Something Blue” wedding shower. Erinn’s oldest sister and maid of honor, Bree, hosted the event and did a great job.

Erinn is not one for tiaras or pink, typically bridal stuff, so I thought a simple blue theme would be low-maintenance and pretty. We tried to stick to two shades of blue: a royal and a teal shade.

The favors are margarita glasses which I personalized for each guest with glass paint and rhinestones. My mom wrapped the utensils in napkins and a variety of sparkly ribbon. We edged the cupcake stand (from my baby shower) in ribbon with hanging sequins and glitter ribbon and it held adorable cupcakes with paper flowers.

Bree made labels for the food and drinks, and served delicious Mexican food (a favorite of the bride’s). She put together the centerpieces with two sizes of cylindrical hurricanes, blue and turquoise shell pieces, and colored water. The guests wrote wishes for the couple of blue local postcards.

My mom made the beautiful pennant banner with sparkle tulle and ribbon, and made alternate black letters so it can be adapted for use on her wedding day!
