Paris, Anyone ?

I recently joined two friends in throwing a bridal shower for a young woman I truly adore.  She’s not a fussy gal, so a simple shower was in order, but we still wanted to make it memorable and personal.

Our bride to be spent a semester studying abroad in Paris and is majoring in French, so we decided a little Parisian flair would be  perfect for the shower.

I headed up the décor by sewing up some garland, rounding up a few Eiffel Towers and crafting some whimsical flags to label our crepe bar ingredients – in French, of course! We added some frilly details to the flowers with ruffled tags that included a French quote about true love.

We enjoyed crepes, quiche, croissants and cheese.

An understanted shower, but so much fun. It was a simple, simply lovely day for a very lovely bride-to-be.

Even understated your shower is beautiful! I love your creativeness. I wish I could live your imagination for one day. I bet it would be an inspiring spot to be.

I think it is every girls dream to have some sort of party organized/decorated by you. At least, this is true for me.
