Being a Bridezilla I had to be involved with my shower and I didn't want to burden my sisters at the same time. My goal was to put together a chic bridal shower on a very low budget.
I fell in love with the Damask pattern so we incorporated it in the shower. A very thoughtful and generous bride let me borrow her damask linen and Ikea white vases. I bought damask chargers & bowls from TJ Maxx/Home Goods. The green votives were on clearance from Michaels. Flowers were from Trader Joes & Costco. Tables, white wood folding chairs and linens were from Del Rey Rentals. My neice had a heart shaped place setting instead of the charger and plate.
We used the cookie favors from Diddy Riese in Westwood as the place setting. We layered three different cookie flavors in a clear candy bag and tied it with the same "lemon grass" ribbons used in the wedding. We stamp and heat embossed a very chic design and hand wrote in each guests's name.
It was a unique personalized touch!
