Bridal Shower Bliss

My sister is getting married!

Things have been very busy around here. The wedding is only six weeks away. My future brother-in-law, his friends, my dad and my hubby have been working feverishly to prepare their future home. My mother and sister are busy with wedding preparations. My other two sisters and a close family friend are the bridesmaids. We've been working very hard on the shower for the last few weeks and yesterday it went better than I had hoped.

We did a lot of handcrafted items.

We made all the invitations by hand:
We had a bright theme. The invitations were stamped pink, yellow, orange, green, purple and turquoise. I'll post some more pictures of these later - they only allow me five pictures per post :)
On to the favors:

We made paper bags hand-stamped with the same colorful flower stamp. Each one had a matching stamped tag with a mini picture of Beth and Ben. Inside was a bottle of hand soap.

These are matching photo mini-booklet cards. They are so cool! I will definitely have to post more details later. As you can see, they match the stamps of the invitations and the favors.
I gave one to Beth and have plans for the others ... gifts for bridesmaids, mother, mother-in-law, grandma, etc.

Hope you enjoyed the few pictures :) Now it's time for wedding crafts!
