I am always looking for ways to express my creativity, so when my friend Kisha asked me to help decorate a bridal shower she was hosting I think I said "yes" before she could finish asking me! LOL. The theme: Roses are Red and we decided to add touches of sexy and dainty accents with the lace and pearls.
The Bride-To-Be's name is Mahogany so I made a "M" out of silk roses to greet the guess as they come in and signed the guess book.
The beautiful rose topiaries you see here are made from felt circles and I got the inspiration from The Idea Room's Heart Felt Wreath post. Easy to make but very time consuming. I added pearl corsage pins to the balls to tie in the pearls draping from the glass cylinder that are wrapped in black ace trim.
Glass votive wrapped with black lace over red ribbon.
I made the rose pens for the guess to use for the bridal shower games. This craft very was easy to make. Buy roses, cut steams but leave about 1-2 inches, tape to pen and wrap with floral tape.
Bought a spool of black lace from Hobby Lobby to use as table runners. "Diamonds" added a little sparkle and flare because they are a girl's best friend.
Small picture clips were purchased at Michael's Crafts stores in the Dollar Section ($1 each). Instead of pictures I clipped love quotes the I had in my scrapbooking supplies and added a 1" square of damask cardstock to the bottom where a picture would usually go.
I didn't create this but I had to show the creativity!
The rosy picture frame was purchased at Michael's, I put black and white damask fabric in the frame with a double heart accent.
\And last but definitely not least the beautiful Bride-To-Be (well now the new Mrs Gould): Mahogany!
