Shower Treats

Hello there!  I wanted to share some of the fun and festive decorations I put together for my friend Melissa's Ladies Weekend/Bachelorette recently!

These are some fun little wine charms I made.  I bought little mini picture frames from Michael's (SO tiny) in the jewelry making department.  Then, I spent a few hours shrinking some cute pics of her and her fiance to put in the frames.  I threaded some jewelry wire with some pretty beads and the mini frames and attached clasps at the end (you can't see them in this picture) and ta da!  Super cute, very simple, and she loved them so much!  I liked making them too - it was oddly soothing to sit in my backyard and string beads on wire.  Until I realized I got about 200 bug bites.  I suffer for my art, alas. 

We decorated her parents' apartment with some lovely photos strung about, and affixed the wine charms to the glasses, so that we could enjoy...

champagne!  I decorated the bottles with custom made wrappers.  I found a template for an announcement in Microsoft word, actually, then added a picture of the happy couple.  Very easy and sweet too!  Add some cheese ball wine words like "lovely blend" and "notes of happiness and love" and folks will swoon, seriously. 

Also I made her a sweet little veil in her wedding colors - yellow tulle and grey gems on a hair clip.  For the classy bride to be that doesn't want to wear some tacky thing from party city!  Ta da! 

It was a fun weekend!  And with the wedding this weekend much more fun is to come!  Can't wait.
