Chocolate & Words Bridal Shower, Decorations

WOW, what a phenomenal weekend!

We celebrated the upcoming marriage of a dear, long-time friend with a bridal shower centered around her two favorite things: Chocolate & Words! Ariana is an English major with a sweet tooth, and both bride and guests thoroughly enjoyed the jubilee. Here’s a sneak peak of the beautiful decorations.

I made this GoldLeaf Word Art as a gift for the bride&groom-to-be. Its gorgeous and classy design will grace their first home together. I used this DIY, though I made a few changes as I couldn’t find the same materials in the short weekend I gave myself to create it.

These stunning Gardenia Pomanders were majorly eye-catchin. My mom (aka the flower expert) couldn’t believe how real they looked! I loved their versatility. Here are two easy ways to display such beauty. Silk Gardenia Pomanders with Chocolate Ribbon by: BizouBizou

Delicate three-dimensionaly book page hearts graced the dining hall. The entire bridal party had fun “3D-ing” these lovely garlands, a word I was gently informed isn’t real after the bride and maid of honor had a good laugh 🙂 Generous yards of detailed, sewn hearts provided by EuphoricEuny.

A wishing tree stood on the buffet table, another lovely gift for our guest of honor. The tree is multi-functional, serving not only as a beautiful holder for cards of advice, but also as home decor or a unique jewelry tree! We absolutely loved how spacious these wish tags were, with plenty of room to write. The romantic tree  stamped on the front and delicious chocolate-colored ink was the perfect fit for our soiree. This beauteous touch for sharing words of love and wisdom was provided by  ItwasMadewithLuv.

Chocolate & Love, what more can a girl ask for? Rich brown wire crafted into such eloquent words was generously provided by SatarasWireCrafts. With them we smothered the kitchen with chocolatey love. These two were hung directly over the beverages, while two more invite guests to the scrumptiously outfitted dessert table.IMG_6545IMG_6544_MG_0670

 

The handmade table decor was made with precision by ABespokeTouch. They were absolutely perfect for gracing the tables, and an adorable favorite amongst the young ladies in attendance. After all, who wouldn’t love a silk, chiffon or paper origami flower?

Oh how I love the rich, chocolatey color of these little hearts. A sprinkle of festivity fell from each personal invitation to the shower, decorating our chocolate signs with yummy little heart and also peeked out from amongst the party favors as guests took their leave. What better a way to begin and end our Chocolate & Words celebration. The perfect touch to a perfect party. HopeTillUrHeartHurts
