A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending a bridal shower a friend of mine hosted for a friend of hers. She invited me to come help set up and add a couple of extra hands. My friend Shirley is another creative lady and she had quite a few unique ideas up her sleeve when decorating for the event.
I thought I’d share some of the photos I took that day:)
This party had a kitchen inspired theme and Shirley added a lot of quirky and fun decorating ideas to it. The table was set with bamboo trays filled with a charger, lace trimmed napkins,napkin ring, scented candle and neat centerpiece made out of a flower pot and kitchen utensils as the “flowers” at each place setting. I really got a kick out of them. How neat is that?!!!!We tied vintage aprons to the backs of the chairs for added whimsy.
I thought this was a very neat idea.
The tables were set up in front of huge windows overlooking the water. This is the view….
Isn’t it “To Die For”????!!! I could sit for hours on that porch sipping tea or coffee dreaming the day away.
The buffet was decorated with lovely plastic gift boxes that lit up, tea light candles and pictures of the bride and groom in tiny frames. This made such a pretty display when everything was lit.
She put out quite a spread of food, enough to feed an army. This was the dessert table. Cute huh? I made the purple cupcakes. Everything was delicious!
Here is a side view shot of the wacky “wishing well” Shirley came up with. She created it out of a laundry basket, mop and broom, and bucket. She adorned it with sponges, spoons, and a bunch of household items. I think its just a HOOT!
Here’s a closeup of the roof….
And lastly, here is a shot of the party in full swing. The party was a hit, the guests had a great time and the guest of honor seemed just tickled by everything!

How creative to use those fun aprons on the backs of chairs for this shower. Lots of creativity going on here, I can tell. Oh you are right! That view is fabulous. How I would love to be able to look out at water from my house.
Thanks for sharing and for your visit. Do come again,.
What a neat shower and I love the aprons!
This is about the cutest shower I’ve ever seen. Love the aprons on the backs of the chairs … how adorable. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, what a beautiful place you have here. I love the background! Thanks for sharing. Have a great day!
What a lovely bridal shower theme! I absolutely love the vintage aprons tied around the chairs. Such a sweet and darling feel to all the decorating. I love it! Thank you for sharing with us! 🙂
What a fun party! The aprons on the back of the chairs is very clever. This was really creative and I’m sure the guests enjoyed every minute.
I wish I could have attended this FUN party……how cute are those aprons tied on the back of the chairs! I must share this with you…….I married 47 years ago and one of my mom’s friends gave me a kitchen shower….she had each guest sign a pretty yellow apron with their normal signature. She told me that she would bring it to me later….and when she did, I was shocked. She had embroidered each lady’s name in a deeper shade of yellow. I still have the apron and treasure it as it always brings back memories of a lot of ladies who are no longer on our earth.
Cute table…I like the aprons tied to the backs of the chairs. The dessert table is gorgeous…those cupcakes look delicious.
Have a great weekend!
Eeeeeeee! May I ask where you got that gorgeous fluted edge blue/aqua cake pedestal on the right? I must have one like it!
