Italythemedbridalshower preview

With summer in full swing the past few weeks, I hope all of you are enjoying these warmer days and evenings. A few posts back, I mentioned how packed this summer was going to be for me. One thing I didn’t mention in that post was the little road trip that my family and I decided to do…on a whim. On a whim in that we did not plan for it until just a couple of weeks before. We usually plan out trips months in advance. This is not a post about our road trip though. I’ll save that for next week. 😀 Instead, this post is about how since this Monday, I’ve been busy working on a special project.

You may recall me mentioning I was decorating for a bridal shower a few posts back. Well, the shower is this Saturday and I cannot wait for the day to arrive! As you probably know, I love decorating for special events. Because of the party decor I’ve done in the past (see examples here, here, and here), I was asked to decorate for this shower. Yes, I’m up for the challenge fun!

The theme of the bridal shower is all things Italian, since the bride and groom are honeymooning in Italy. 🙂

I’ve got a number of projects planned for this theme. Here’s a sneak peek at some of these things:

1. Wine bottles with “Amore” spelled out – Can’t wait to fill them with pretty flowers!

2. “Mrs. To Be” Pennant Banner – Green, white, and red to go with “Italy” theme.


3. “Showering the Bride” Garland – I recently purchased this botanicals themed banner and am so glad I was able to use it for this bridal shower. Of course, I had to personalize it a bit with 3-D stickers and adding the “green, white, and red” pennants.


3) “That’s Amore” Chalkboard Sign – This will be displayed above one of the fireplaces in the hall. Can’t wait to see this along with other decor items around the fireplace.

That’s all for now, folks! I have to get back to the projects. 🙂 You can catch additional sneak peeks throughout the next couple of days on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.
