Pinspiration: Wedding Shower

My mom and I are throwing my cousin-to-be Emily (who's marrying my cousin, Josh) a family wedding shower in June! I am SO excited because my dream job is party planning. There's not a huge market for that in my little ol' town, so I can live that career vicariously through my loving family and friends! And we ADORE Emily and are so glad to do this for her!

To prepare, my mom and I are looking all over Pinterest for inspiration! Here's a few fun things I've found: please go to the original source for your own pinning by using the source link under each picture for more party planning fun. Thanks!

Aren't these arrangements darling? So dainty and romantic. That is definitely the theme I'm leaning towards... flirty and feminine! And these would be so easy!

Washi tape is becoming all the rage on Pinterest. I've never used it personally, but it looks so fun! Just see how it jazzes up these cheap-o inexpensive clear plastic cups!

Love how the drinks are poured with a straw, the dainty snacks arranged on a platter, and the ribbon banner! Easy and elegant.

What an adorable banner to have over the food OR on a mantel OR where the guest of honor unwraps her gifts. Super cute.

Again, so simple! Buy the cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby and wrap them in various colors of yarn (possibly her wedding colors?) and add various adornments, like flower/pompom thangs.

So what do you think? Dainty? Romantic? Elegant? We'll see what my mom and I come up with!


  1. Pinterest is the BEST! I wish it had been around when I was getting married.... so many amazing ideas on it!
    Can't wait to see what you come up with for the shower!

  2. Some great pinterest ideas! Looks like you will have a fun time planning this shower. I think your problem will be trying to narrow down your favorites as there are way too many great inspirations on pinterest!

  3. I really do love all of those banners that you have found:) They are all truly lovely! Washi tape has become very popular these past couple months. I love the color that the tape packs!
