Shabby Chic Bridal Shower Tutorial: May flowers bring June Mrs. Gracious Showers

One of my BFFs is getting married so I was honored to throw her a bridal shower since she has done so many sweet things for me.  I had so much fun decorating and planning it!  The next week's posts will show all the planning and the final end result. Hope you can get some fun ideas!

Starting off, I wanted a fabulous invitation so it had to be custom.  I found an image of a wedding dress and then added in the language for the invite:

I printed them off on cream cardstock from Hobby Lobby for $1.99 (on a 50% off day) for 50 pages.  I only had to use 15 pages to print 30 5x5 invitations so total expenditure was $1.19 for paper.  I also picked up 15 sheets of pale pink cardstock from Hobby Lobby (in stores) to print the wedding website and registry info on the back.  Total for those was $2.18 for 15 sheets (on 50% off day).  I used spray glue to put the two pages together.  

To add a personal touch, I added some pearl ribbon from Hobby Lobby for $1.79 (with 40% off coupon). 
I mailed the invites out in 6x6 square envelopes for $0.20 each.  I think they turned out so cute - and for a total of $11.93 for 30 I'd say it was a success!

I loved the dress theme so much i decided to extend it to the rest of the shower.  I took the same background and applied it to the rest of the papery:
Food description labels
Water bottle labels

Favor labels

Letter for girls to fill out for the bride
Sign on food table

Card for the bride

I used the rest of the cream paper I had in the pack so rest of the expenditure was $0.80.  Total shower papery cost was $12.73!  If you're not the DIY type, you can purchase the package here.
