Our bedroom is finally complete! In addition to the headboard and nightstands we built, our king quilt is on the bed as well, as we also painted 2 clip on lights to match. It’s taken a lot of hard work, creativity, and time, but it’s safe to say that the room is finished. And I am in absolute LOVE with it!!!!!
And now for the dramatic before and after pictures!!!
Last month I helped throw a bridal shower for my beautiful sister-in-law who is getting married this fall! Her wedding is going to be a Gatsby theme, so I wanted to incorporate a bit of that into the shower while also adding a few more things to make it unique for her. She served her mission in Italy and loves all things Italian, which we integrated using the food, and she’s also a desert girl which we integrated in the favors.
The menu included:
Italian bread with an olive oil “buffet”
Sparkling Apple Cider with a gold paper straw
2 different flavors of Gelato served in black paper cups and ate with a wooden spoon wrapped in gold washi tape
The decorations were kept fairly simple, with a lot of black, white, and gold. I cut circles out of gold and glitter paper to place on the food table and to sew into a banner that went above the gift table.
