I have had and will continue to have showers throughout the rest of this month. However I was lucky enough to co-throw two of them.
First up was my brother and future brother in law's wedding shower <3
They both love music, movies, and books....so naturally I wanted to take on the challenge of decorating for this event:
I went with books....and never stopped! I may have gone overboard with book pages...but what can I say I was having fun.
Here are the book page decorations I put together.
These photos are actually from my kitchen. I tested out the hanging effect but stringing them to my chandelier in the kitchen to make sure they wouldn't fall on people at the shower.
Of course I went for a sphere....why wouldn't I?? Apparently it's what I love to do as you can see from my bubble sculpture and my decorations from last years shower:
String Spheres from Wedding Shower 2012
Bubble sculpture in my living room.
But anyway back to the book spheres...here is what they looked like at the shower:
I really just loved the artichoke page layer look. So soft and organic. I had so much fun doing these that I am sure you will see them again in the future. These 6 however went with my brother to his place so he could hang them up and have them as a keepsake from the shower.
Here are some of the other decorations I put together for this shower:
The centerpiece with book pages and a record.
Book Page organic garland.
Book Page stringed hearts.
Then I had my lovely sister-in-laws baby shower. So excited for this only because A) I love her guts and want to make the girl happy. and B) she made me an auntie again and that is a gift that deserves a PARTY!!!
I guess looking back at the photos the flower pom poms could be spheres...What can I say!
Burlap Banner (gotta love the James Taylor Song!)
The flower favors.
Have you been doing any decorations for baby/wedding showers?? Would love to see!
