Bridal Shower Fun!

So I told you all about the bridal shower last weekend, sorry it has taken forever for me to post pics!  Unfortunately I don't have any pics of Audra and me together because I was busy chasing after my kids, but I did get a few pictures!

I actually fixed my hair!  Something I am to lazy never have time to do!

Audra's Mom was amazing, she bought most of the decorations (thank you Kate)!  And I was so excited when she let me make the favor boxes!
I think they turned out super cute!  I am 97% sure she got the diamond ring key chains from Oriental Trading.  I tied some ribbon around the keychains and hot glued the paper flowers onto the ribbon, so easy!


And this was my favorite part, the cake!  I love cake and I love to make cakes even more when they are this easy!  Slap some Oreo Straw sticks around the side and tie with ribbon and call it good, I didn't even have to make the icing look pretty!  I found the flowers from the Dollar Store, I was amazed that they sold such pretty flowers.  I bought the crystal beady thing at WalMart, it's cake garland and I cut it up and stuck them in!  I found the tutorial for the cake at Texas Monkey.  She has some really cute candy cakes too!

And I may not have gotten a picture with Audra, but 2 little girls did!
And yes I like to dress them alike, it's a sickness!  Audra I am so excited for you and can't wait for your wedding!

Love the favors and cake! I have the sickness as well. I think they look so much cuter dressed alike. Isn't it fun having two close in age and the same gender?! Your girls are so cute!! I thought you had brown hair?

Super good job of putting together the favors and the cake. (I hadn't heard of Oreo Straw sticks, but looks like I may be needing some.) lol Your daughters are beautiful in their matching sundresses. Pam @ Sallygoodin

Your hair looks beautiful! So does that cake. I love the flowers on top. And those rings are such a perfect bridal shower idea!

Thank you for participating in the Creative Therapy Session at Life in the Pitts.

What a great idea to use the oreo straws like that. That cake is really gorgeous.

Easy and Elegant says it all. It looks better than an expensive cake bought at a fancy bakery. Did it taste as good as it looks?
My best - Diane

Some people devote a fortune on their bridal showers but it is not essential. We identified a list of 99 scavenger hunt topics and placed the topics on the back of some shirts which was the most amazing evening! We found lots of amazing ideas on this web page if you're seeking to save energy…
