A few Fridays ago I posted that showers were the theme around my house. Recently one of my oldest friends, as in I’ve known her since I was 6 months old, had her bridal shower. She asked me to be a bridesmaid and I couldn’t be more honored. I’m so exicted to be at her wedding and see her looking beautiful in her wedding dress. I remember she spent ages trying to find the right one. She looked at websites like https://www.winniecouture.com/stores/wedding-dresses-charlotte-nc/ or ones similar before she found her perfect dress.
Obviously, it’s not just about the wedding dress though. This is her and her fiance’s big day and I cannot wait for these two to be married. But first, we’ve got to get the bridal shower sorted.
For bridal/baby showers I like to give or make a handmade gift. Their kitchen colors are beachy ones. I had the idea of what I wanted to do but wasn’t quite sure. I went through all of my blue, tan, and aqua scraps. For her gift I wanted to include an apron, potholders and napkins.
My friend made a beautiful apron, sad I don’t have a photo of it. These potholders were made with all scraps.
I had this old picnic basket that I put it all in. Also included an Indiana cutting board, seen here. This will play into their going away gift when they move in January.
It was a great bridal shower and this weekend we gear up for the bachelorette party.
