Bedroom Before and After

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!!!!!

Desert Deco Bridal Shower

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:
Caprese skewers
Italian bread with an olive oil “buffet”
Artichoke Hearts
Broccoli Salad
Meatballs
Fruit Tray
Sparkling Apple Cider with a gold paper straw
Cheesecake Bites
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.

And for the favors I bought these darling succulent packs from Lowes to plant into cups.
