Party Perfect - Bridal Shower Inspiration

My cousin is getting married this July and last weekend I attended her bridal shower. Her girls did a great job of throwing the party and it got me thinking about other shower diy ideas I've stashed away. From invitations to decor to favours - there's tons of great bridal shower inspiration out there for things you can make yourself.

First I'll show you the card that I made for the bride. I bought the "Oh Happy Day" shape for my Silhouette because I love the pretty script. The little layered bird sticker is a leftover from Valentine's Day that perfectly matched the papers I chose to use.

How pretty is this wedding dress shower invite made from cardstock and a doily? So simple to make but really effective! Click over to Zakka Life to see the how to.

I love this unique idea for bridal shower decor - it's a wedding cake centrepiece made from Styrofoam, wrapping paper and ribbon. The instructions at Crafts 'n Coffee promise that if you can wrap a present you can make this cake. I like it so much that I kind of want to make one for my kitchen table ;)

Last, I'm so in love with this idea for bridal shower favours. The woman who made them scoured flea markets looking for vintage tea cups that she wrote messages on with gold pen. So pretty! Be sure to check out 100 Layer Cake for other great ideas from this same shower.

Looking at all these great ideas I really wish I was someone's Maid of Honour. Hopefully someone else can use this inspiration for a shower they're planning in the coming months - we're coming up fast on wedding season!
