Bridal Shower Recap

A dear friend got married last weekend and here are pictures from her bridal shower a few weeks ago.  We went with a grey and yellow theme, inspired by a pretty table runner the bride had.  I found the sweetest paper goods at Paper + Pip on etsy, which perfectly complemented and highlighted our theme. Thank you Paper + Pip for the invites and paper goods!!
Mimosa Bar: variety of juices and prosecco. 
We used CB2 pitchers (only $5.95 each!) for the juices.  Yellow ribbon was added to the pitchers and yellow paper in the apothecary jars to make everything cohesive.  
We went with a brunch theme for the brunch loving bride. 
On the menu (only some shown): truffled egg salad, salmon tartare, chicken and waffles, potato egg casserole, frittata, beet salad, trader joe’s croissants, fruit salad and more! 
cupcake toppers by Paper + Pip
One of the other bridesmaids saw these pillars at BHLDN and was inspired to DIY. She purchased stair posts from a hardware store and cut slits in them.  The natural wood went so well with our theme and with the Paper + Pip labels, they added nice height to our table.
Printable Scattergories Game cards c/o and she loved flowers on etsy. Thank you!!
We used the straw labels from Paper + Pip for pencils instead.

With our limited prize budget, we decided to get eos lip balms in a variety of colors.  Packaged with a label and some taupe ribbon, they looked cute!
Printable Bridal Bingo cards c/o Inklings Paperie on etsy. Thank you!!
This is the aformentioned runner that inspired us to go with the yellow and grey theme.  We intended for people to take polaroids and write marriage advice on them but somehow, the advice part never happened and we just ended up taking a bunch of pictures.
For flowers, I picked up 3 bunches of flowers from Trader Joe’s in whites and yellows for $12. We mixed and matched them in a variety of small vases. 
Coffee bean favors for the coffee loving bride. 
The coffee beans went in glassine bags before folding and stapling the labels over it.

A HUGE thank you to Paper + Pip (also for the gorgeous invitations!), and she loved flowers, and Inklings Paperie!!!!
