10 Elegant Bridal Shower Ideas

10 Elegant Bridal Shower Ideas

Are you in charge of planning a bridal shower and have no idea where to start? Well you have come to the right place. Even if you are not interested in the theme we have chosen, you will learn the essentials for throwing a bridal shower event. Read on to create the perfect day for your Bride-to-Be!

Theme:

For this bridal shower we combined a few ideas for the theme. We utilized inspiration from eucalyptus, flowers, as well as  macrame and blended it all with a bit of elegance. 

Treat Table:

Treat Table set up: Wood backdrop, wood table, 4 large candy filled glass jars in the middle with L-O-V-E letters on each jar, double tiered bundt cake, bundtinis, cake pops, & custom decorated cookies.

Note: Some pictures are missing the bundtinis as they were delivered a little late.

Table Treat Decorations:

Table and Backdrop: The wood table and backdrop were handmade by the Bride-to-Be’s father. The table was constructed as a folding table with pull out legs to make it easier to transport

Balloons: Balloon pack was purchased on Amazon, but we would not recommend purchasing any Balloon Arch kit without 18 in balloons. It took a very long time to blow up the balloons and we still did not have enough to wrap around the top and sides, so we had to settle for balloons only on the top of our backdrop. The extra large balloons help spread all the balloons out. We recommend the following kit on Amazon that is only $2 dollars more than the kit we used. (Link is also below).

Tip: Look for an electric air balloon pump at the 99 Cent Store. We found one for $10. It works amazing. If you can’t find it at your local 99 Cent Store, the same pump is on Amazon. (click link for info)

Table Treats: For the glass jars we have- watermelon taffy, Hershey Kisses (w/ Bride-to-Be stickers on the bottom of each candy), peanut butter cups, and Rolos. For the baked goods we have – Tiered bundt cake, bundtinis, custom made cake pops and cookies.

Table Decor: We decorated the table with a burlap table runner and white tulle down the middle. We topped the tulle with pink flower vines and eucalyptus leaves. The same flower vines were used to space out the macrame hanging curtain that we utilized as a table skirt for the front of the table. 

Also seen: burlap & lace utensil pouches, candle lanterns and pink glass candle holders. Last but not least, we of course had to include a treat sign “Love is Sweet, Please Take a Treat!”.

Center Pieces:

A lot of examples online for bridal shower events have long tables, a table runner and a few center pieces along the middle. We decided to try something different and have multiple tables with a simple and elegant look. We also wanted guests to be able to take the centerpieces home and enjoy them for longer than a few days, so we opted for artificial flowers. So to start, we teamed up with the bride to ask what color theme she was looking for and  went to work.

Centerpiece pot: We had 6 tables as well as a welcome table, so we needed 7 centerpieces total. A good tip is to always buy a couple more pots (vases, mason jars, lanterns, etc) in the event that there is an accident and one breaks. We checked online and saw that IKEA had a beautiful simple white ceramic pot for less than $5 and we were sold. Luckily we bought 9, because two chipped on the way home. 

Flowers and plants: For the flowers and plants, we bought the following in bulk bouquets and used wire cutters to cut them apart: eucalyptus, dusty miller, spring berry bush, baby’s breath, fountain grass, and mini boxwood bush. The flowers were purchased at Walmart (shown above) and as a bonus it had some plants included. Also purchased at Walmart was a couple of white rose bouquets. We also cut those apart and mixed them all together.

Creating the centerpiece: We mixed quite a few different flowers and plants, so in order to keep them in the ceramic pot, we used dry floral foam. We bought them in bricks and used our small saw the cut them down to size. The trick is to cut them a little larger than the inside of the pot, so it will not move. DO NOT try to jam too large of a piece into the pot because it can completely break the pot open. Once you have your dry foam inserted and sturdy, you can start mixing your flowers and plants.

Welcome Table:

Welcome Table:

We placed a Welcome Table at the entrance of the event so that all the attendees would see what we placed there.

Guest Book: To ensure the Bride-to-Be had all the guests names and addresses, a guest book was placed on the Welcome Table so that everyone would sign in as soon as they arrived.

Necklace Game: One of the games involved each guest wearing a necklace that we made, so the Welcome Table was a perfect place to set this up so everyone would start the event wearing one.

 

Present Table:

Present Table Setup:

Table: We spruced up a table that was already outside with a eucalyptus vine.  

Peacock Chair: Since we knew there would be tons of photos of the Bride-to-Be opening her presents, we made sure to have a beautiful chair for her to sit in. There are companies online that offer peacock chairs for rent (along with other types of chairs), but the majority of them are just the chair without any decorations and/or seating pillow. So we used the same flowers that we did for the centerpieces and threw in a little vine at the bottom the chair. We strategically placed the chair and present table in an area that would have a beautiful background and plenty of shade.

Games and Prizes:

Don't Say Wedding Game:

Don’t Say Wedding:

Necklaces: We purchased a bulk bag of fake diamond rings and attached them to a white ribbon necklace. As the guests entered, we had them all put on a necklace. The idea is to not say “WEDDING”, or someone can steal your necklace. The person with the most rings at the end of the party WINS!

Game Rules Sign: We used a green marker and created hand written instructions and framed them in a white washed frame.

Picture Guessing Game:

Picture Guessing Game:

Banner: We found a cute Bridal Shower Banner at Walmart for $5.47 and decided to make a game out of it.

Game: We asked the Bride-to-Be to send us a few photos of her and her fiancé at a special event and/or photos of them traveling. Out of these photos, 5 were chosen and placed into the banner slots. We then asked the guests to guess the location of the couple. 

Game Kits on Amazon:

Amazon Game Kit:

There are so many amazing game kits on Amazon if you want to save money and time coming up with games on your own. 

Amazon Kit Contents: 50 Advice for the bride cards, Bride-to-Be sash, 25 fake diamond rings and 5 games (50 cards each):

  • Do you know the bride? 
  • Bridal Pictionary
  • He Said, She Said
  • Over/Under
  • Bridal Bingo
  • Advice for the bride

Game Winning Prizes:

Game Prizes:

Prizes: We chose to use floral bags to fit the theme for the prize winners. Baskets are also very common.  

Contents: Typical Bridal Shower etiquette is self care prizes. While choosing your prizes, take into consideration your guest list and who will be attending when you are buying/creating your prize bags.

Party Favors:

For the party favors for our guests, we went with Amazon again. We found a nice party favor kit (that we had to put together ourselves) with a key bottle opener, twine, small candy box and tag that reads: The Key to Happiness is Love & the ability to open a bottle.

We filled the candy box with Haribo mini gummy bear bags and they were a hit!

Bow/Ribbon Bouquet:

Ribbon Bouquet

Bow/Ribbon Bouquet: Make sure to bring a sturdy plate with a pre-made hole in the middle and designate someone creative to gather all the bows from the presents to create a Ribbon Bouquet for the Bride-to-Be to have for her wedding rehearsal. 

Advice for the Bride:

Advice for the Bride: Make sure not to forget the ‘Advice for the Bride’ cards. A lot of Bridal Shower game  kits include these or you can find some on Etsy.

Advice Box: This box was purchased at Joanns

Additional Photos of Setup:

In Conclusion:

If you have a creative side, with time and planning, you can create a beautiful Bridal Shower without having to pay a professional party planner. Follow these basics and you will be the Bridal Shower Party Planner of the year!

Miraculous Lady Bug: Hawk Moth Piñata

Miraculous Lady Bug: Hawk Moth Piñata

Do you have a Miraculous Lady Bug fan at home? Are they begging for a Lady Bug and Cat Noir party? If so, the obvious choice for a piñata is none other than the infamous Hawk Moth. At Sew Stitchin Creative, we are going to show you how to make a Hawk Moth piñata on your own with just a few supplies. 

What you will need:

  • Pre-Made Pinata- in the shape of your choice, easy to cover up
  • Tracing paper or regular white copy paper
  • Black Cardstock Paper (4 sheets)
  • Purple Cardstock Paper (1 sheet)
  • Glue stick 
  • Printer or printed out picture of Hawk Moth (2 copies)
  • Scissors
  • Cricut machine (or scissors)
Note: If you do not have a Cricut machine, you may need access to a printer. Please read directions (step 7 & 8) all the way through before starting project

Step #1: Purchase pre-made piñata 

We started looking online for a pre-made piñata with a good shape. It just so happens that this video game controller on Amazon was the perfect shape to be transformed into a ‘moth’ backdrop. Amazon delivered in one day and we went to work!

Tip: If you do choose to get this piñata, make sure you do not overstuff with heavy candy/toys. If you decide that you do not want to lighten to load, then be sure to reinforce the strap at the top so that it does not rip easily!

Step #2: Tracing Paper 

Measure the inside image on the front of the piñata to determine what dimensions (height & width) you will need for your tracing paper. We have included a link below if you do not have tracing paper and would like to buy a roll. If not, do not fret, just tape two pieces of regular white copy paper together. As long as you can see through the paper to trace around the controller image, you will accomplish the goal. 

Step #3: Tracing the image 

Use a pencil to trace around the video game controller image.

Cut out the traced image as you will now be using it as a guide to trace on black cardstock paper.

Step #4: Tracing the tracing paper

Tape two pieces of black cardstock paper together (side by side) so that you have a large enough image to cover the controller print on the piñata. ONLY TAPE the back, as the front will be visible. 

Use a pencil to trace your TRACED & CUT video game controller image on to the black cardstock paper.

Cut out the black cardstock traced image.

Repeat this process for the back of the piñata.

Step #5: Covering the Video Game Controller

Glue black cardstock paper onto the piñata to cover the original controller print (front and back).

Step #7: Creating Akumas

Look up “Ladybug Akuma” and upload an image of an akuma into your Cricut Design Space. 

Duplicate this image x 20.

Cut these images out on purple cardstock paper. 

Tip: make sure you use the “light” Cricut mat so that your paper doesn’t get stuck on the mat. 

 

If you do not have a Cricut machine:

Look up “Ladybug Akuma” and upload an image of an akuma into a program that you use on your computer that will allow you to duplicate this image.

Duplicate this image x 20.

Print out on purple cardstock (or regular copy) paper. 

Cut each individual akuma out with scissors.

Step #8: Putting it all together

Take your printed images of Hawk Moth and use a glue stick to attach him to the center of the piñata (front and back).

Use a glue stick to glue the akumas around Hawk Moth (font and back)

Last but not least…fill the piñata with candy, toys or both!

 

In Conclusion:

You have now transformed a video game controller piñata into a moth/akuma (your choice) with Hawk Moth in the center. Your kids will have a great time breaking this piñata open.

Rock and Roll Baby Shower

Rock and Roll Baby Shower

IMG_0804

Do you have a feeling that you have a little Rockstar on the way? Or maybe you just absolutely love rock music. Whatever the case is, we are going to show you how to create a smash hit for your baby shower without costing an arm and a leg!

"BORN TO ROCK" BANNER:

This banner was custom made with a plain black banner from the 99 cent store for $1.99. We used blue card stock paper to cut the letters and “hardcore” hand signs with a Cricut Maker. If you are interested browsing different types of free fonts to use, check out Dafont’s website. There you will be able to narrow your search by filtering the type of font you are looking for, unlike Cricut’s Design Space.

After the Cricut machine completed each cut, we glued the letters and pictures individually to the banner with a glue stick. There were a couple of flags/triangles leftover, so we just removed them from the ribbon. 

POOL BACKDROP/SIGN:

The signage behind the pool was outsourced by a local small business owner. To add an extra creative touch, we used clothespins to attach five baby onesies to some jute twine underneath the words “Born to Rock”. The black onesies were purchased as a 5-pack at Walmart. To decorate the onesies, five of the Mommy-to-Be’s favorite bands were chosen to create the perfect designs in Cricut Design Space. We then used a Cricut Maker to cut out the designs on Iron-on Vinyl and utilized a Cricut Easy Press 2 (9×9) to heat press the vinyl onto the onesies. They turned out perfect!

TREAT TABLE:

Everything blue! 

Candy – “Its a boy” Buttermints, blue raspberry licorice twists (kosher & vegan), sour punch straws (blue), blue gummy raspberry sharks, blue pop rocks and blue rock candy sticks. These are all links that will lead you to the item directly on Amazon.

Rockstar Rice Krispy Treats – We cheated! We purchased the name brand box of 2.2 oz Rice Krispy Treats (purchased at Target) and cut them in half. Then we melted blue chocolate wafers to dip the top of the Krispy treat in. The link is for reference only (in the event you are not familiar with chocolate wafers or a good brand to use). Amazon chocolate wafers are extremely overpriced and we would not forgive ourselves if we didn’t share that you should be able to find a sale on these at your local Joanns for $2-3 dollars each. 

Little Tip: When heating the chocolate in the microwave, do not leave in too long. Small intervals of 15-20 seconds and stir. If you overheat, you can ruin the chocolate. If it hardens, add a few more pieces of chocolate and keep stirring until you get a better consistency. 

Creative Rockstar Labels: ROCKstar Candy = Rock Candy, Guitar Strings = Sour punch straws, Guitar picks = Lays chips, Rockstar Cake Mic = Cake Pops

 

"Don't Say Baby" Game:

We purchased a bulk box of baby blue clothespins and attached to jute twine. As the guests entered, we had them all put on a necklace. The idea is to not say “BABY”, or else someone can steal your necklace. The person with the most clothespins at the end of the party WINS!

Created the sign with Cricut Maker and Cricut Pens.

Used silver binder paper clips to hold signs for games and treats.

Photo Booth:

Photo Booth Picture Props: Downloadable picture props purchased on Etsy for $5 and then we used the “Print then Cut” method on the Cricut Maker. The Cricut Maker made the process seamless by cutting quickly and accurately. We 100% recommend doing everything this way if you decide to download and utilize any SVGs, PNGS, etc. 

Since there are obviously no sticks with downloadable props, we purchased a photo booth prop set from the 99 cent store and removed the photos that came with package and hot glued the sticks to our downloaded items. 

Other Props: Rockstar propsBlow up guitar, blow up microphone and blow up boom box, different colored cool glasses, saxophone and keyboard are all included in this affordable set on Amazon. The guests had a lot of fun with this! 

Extras:

Diaper Cake

Table set up: Scattered Rock N Roll stickers, guitar pic confetti (made on Cricut Maker) and “Advice for the parents to be” (made on Cricut Maker) all over each table. 

Table covers and skirts all purchased at the 99 cent store.

In Conclusion:

This baby shower is perfect for women AND men. Make it fun and have everyone wear their favorite band T-shirt and don’t even require it to be a rock band. This could be a nice icebreaker for everyone to mingle and share their love of music! If you have any questions or suggestions, please comment below or feel free to reach out below!

Daniel Tiger Party Ideas

Daniel Tiger Party Ideas

Does your kid love Daniel Tiger? Have you already realized that there isn’t very many options when it comes to picking up a few Daniel Tiger Party themed items at the local Target? Well…get ready to save yourself some time, money and headaches! We are going to share a few tips on how to create a tiger-tastic party that the kids will go crazy for. As an added bonus, we have also included a creative way to ask for money instead of a gift for your little one.

Treat Table:

To create the treat table, we used a blue, yellow and red theme. 

Table Treat Decorations:

Streamers, balloons, table cover and straws: all purchased at the 99 cent store. To create the twisted streamer look, just tape one end at the top and gently twist however many times it takes to create the look you desire. Then tape the bottom.

Daniel Tiger character decorations: some were purchased on Amazon and some were printed from images online, hand cut and glued to a red shimmer cardboard circle. Small DT characters were printed, hand cut and glued to candy lollipops.

Table Treats: We stuck with a (tiger) striped theme with the cookies, blue frosting cupcakes and some basic candy that fit the color scheme. For the Rice Krispies Treats, we purchased the name brand box of LONG Rice Krispies Treats and cut them in half. Then we melted orange chocolate wafers and drizzled the zig zag stripes on top.

Custom T-Shirts:

Custom T-shirts made with a Cricut Maker.  

Red Glitter Words: made with Cricut vinyl for better quality (longer lasting).

Images: Made with the ‘Print then cut’ method with Cricut maker. Materials included: Printable heat transfer paper for dark fabrics (dark always comes out better on light t-shirts), ink jet printer and Cricut Easy Press 2

Hugging Booth

I’m sure you’ve all heard of a kissing booth, but have you ever heard of a “hugging booth”? Probably not…but for the sake of keeping a 1 year old’s birthday party fairly PG rated, we are rolling with it. “Hugs for Harvard” is a very unique way to ask your party guests to give your child money in lieu of a gift. All you have to do is share ahead of time that you are asking for donations towards the birthday kid’s future college fund and in return, they will receive a hug from the cutie, themselves! This is also a good opportunity for photos with all of the guests.

Photo Booth Creation:

Bottom: To create the bottom half of the photo booth, we used a large skinny box (from TV we just purchased) and wrapped it with sparkling metallic wrapping paper from the 99 cent store. The border was created with rhinestone rolls and attached with hot glue. This was also purchased at the 99 cent store, however if you are not able to find, click here to see an example we have linked from amazon. 

Poles: Used wrapping paper cardboard rolls to create poles, wrapped them in wrapping paper and attached with zip ties to bottom portion of photo booth.

Top: Styrofoam block (from TV we just purchased) wrapped in wrapping paper from the 99 cent store. 

Top Decorations: Cut yellow, blue and red clouds from large cardstock paper. Letters and pictures (owl, heart, and tree) were pre-made in packets that were all purchased at the 99 cent store.

Note: This is also how the ‘Welcome Sign’ was created.

Plastic Jar: placed on top of booth for people to put money in when they came up to take a picture with the birthday girl.

Kid's Photo Booth:

Kids Photo Booth:

We put a backdrop up for the young kids to take pictures with Daniel Tiger photo booth props. 

To take pictures: We put up a tripod that was equipped to hold an iPad and let the kids take the photos with the timer setting. 

Backdrop: purchased in a party pack with photo booth props from Party City.

Piñata:

Piñata: Most places did not have many Daniel Tiger supplies, so we had to order a custom piñata to be made. This has to be done at least 3 weeks in advance. Check in a week before your pick up date to assure the work is in progress. Make sure your pick up date is not the date of the party, so if any alterations need to be made, you will have time.

Cake Tip:

If you are getting a custom character cake, make sure to specify if you want a cake in the shape of the character or just the photo. We ordered this cake three weeks in advance and paid $90 for an image that we could have purchased for $13.00 on Amazon. See link below.

In Conclusion:

If you have a creative side, with time and planning, you can create your child’s dream Daniel Tiger party without breaking the bank!

Bachelorette Party – Out of Town

Bachelorette Party - Out of Town

Planning a bachelorette party can be stressful…ESPECIALLY if it happens to be a multi-day trip that is located out of town! Decorations, matching outfits, games, etc. How in the world will you transport everything? How will you stay organized? We have quite a few cute ideas to help ease that stress.

Shirts:

Shirts:

The Bride-to-Be wanted to channel the Arizona desert for her bachelorette party colors. So, we choose a traditional white t-shirt for the “Wife” of the party and tan for the rest. There were 12 women altogether, so we collected everyone’s shirt sizes and shopped around for the cutest and cheapest shirts. It just so happened that Forever 21 was having a “buy 2, get 1 free” sale, with each shirt costing $3.99. It was definitely a no brainer! We ordered online and they were delivered in 2 days. 

We immediately went to work. To decorate the shirts, we used (and slightly tweaked) a cute template in Cricut Design Space. We then used our handy Cricut Maker to cut out the designs onto Iron-on Vinyl and utilized a Cricut Easy Press 2 (9×9) to heat press the vinyl onto the t-shirts. They turned out beautiful! 

Slim Koozies:

Slim Koozies:

As you all know…hard seltzers are all the rage right now. So we thought it might be cute to make a custom slim can koozie for everyone to have on the trip. The koozies came in a pack of 14 on Amazon, which was perfect for our group of 12. We used the same font and same iron-on vinyl for the koozies as we did on the shirts. The material is a lot different than a t-shirt, so make sure to follow the directions for the type of material your koozies are, since you will be using a heat press on them. You do not want to burn/melt your koozies!

Bride-to Be Jean Jacket:

Bride-to-be Jean Jacket:

Equipment used:  Cricut Maker to cut out the designs onto Iron-on Vinyl and utilized a Cricut Easy Press 2 (9×9) to heat press onto jean jacket. As you can below, the jacket complimented the outfit of the night very well. 

Decorations:

All of the previously mentioned items were made before making the trip to Scottsdale, Arizona. So this obviously added on to the load of other items we were bringing for the weekend. We couldn’t skip on showering the beautiful Bachelorette with decorations, so we had to be creative with cute-but-compact decor.

THANK YOU Amazon – Bachelorette Party Decorations at your service.

See below for a few recommendations that we have personally used.

Decor Kit – This kit from Amazon was perfect and has absolutely everything you could need (see pic above). The quality is also surprisingly AMAZING. The rose gold tiara is made of a strong, durable metal. Only tip I have for this kit and ANY kit is to make sure you bring a mini steam iron for the sash because the creases from the folds are very significant.

Balloon Words – Bach Sh*t Crazy

Backdrop IdeasMugshots of the crew with the best “crimes”.

Photos: 

Here are a few photos of everything put together at the Air BnB in Arizona.

Fun Suggestion (for Scottsdale, Az.):

Arizona Party Bike – Drinks, music, and a lot of laughs. The Arizona Party Bike is a fun/safe way to drink on the go. The bike is equipped with a great sound system, LED party lights and the alcoholic beverages of your choice. Yes, you do pedal to get the bike going, but the “electric helper motor” does the majority of the work and a member of the staff does the driving. The matching shirts were perfect for the outing on the party bike. All the people passing by were honking and cheering for the Bride-to Be! Hard Seltzers were an option for drinks to purchase, so the koozies definitely got their use as well!

Canva:

Canva – Canva is such a great tool for so many things. What we utilized it for on this trip was to create an itinerary. As mentioned before, going out of town for a weekend party can be stressful…for EVERYONE. No one wants to be late or unprepared. So creating an itinerary and sending it in advance helped everyone know what to pack, when to be there and what to prepare for. A lot of brides desire their group to dress similar or to have a certain theme, so this was a good opportunity to share that information with everyone as well. 

Extras:

Extras – Here are a few extra suggestions if there is a pool where you are staying.

Drink Floaties – 22 pack of individual floaties for drinks with pump and waterproof pouch. 

Side note: We do not recommend using waterproof pouch, as they do not always work.

In Conclusion:

Have a discussion and figure out the Bride’s vision. Make it come to life with custom made shirts, bags, cups, koozies, etc. There is nothing more meaningful than taking the time to create personalized items, and lets face it……its a lot cheaper too. To top it off, you know that you have it done right and it’s ready to go on time. If you don’t have the tools to do it yourself, check out ETSY and there are plenty of small business owners that would love your business! Just be sure to order in advance, in case something is damaged, spelled incorrectly and/or missing. Don’t worry about going over the top! Your Bride is going to appreciate everything you have done and will be happy to just have everyone in one place to celebrate before the big day! Please reach out if you have any questions or suggestions. We welcome new ideas!
