Meagen's Bridal Shower!!

One quick post at the end of a long day and before another long day - wrapping up some of the details from Memorial Day Weekend... Like I said, we threw Meagen her Bachelorette Party and a Bridal Shower.  I posted the invitation to the shower before, but here are some of the details from the shower decor.  I had to (more or less) make everything ahead of time from Chicago with the intention of it transporting to Cleveland and being able to be set-up within about an hour.  My mom took care of food and most of the set-up, but I bought table cloths, a runner, candle holders, picture frames,  and matching napkins / plates / cups / forks / knives / spoons.  I pre-made tissue paper poms to jazz up the deck and just unfolded the layers in Cleveland, and used metal garden stakes wrapped with ribbon for centerpieces.  I tied pink and orange ribbon around check $1 frames from IKEA, filled with baby pictures of Meagen, to go around on smaller tables, and I used spice jars (4/$3) from IKEA filled with Skittles and tied with raffia (sp?) as favors.  I also pre-ordered cupcakes and pre-made little flags with paper, glue and toothpicks, for each of the cupcakes as decoration.  It was awesome, super easy, really simple, and (thanks to the weather) a really, really pretty shower!
