Shabby Chic Bridal Shower Tutorial: Shower Decorations

Since all the papery and invitations were pink, I decided to extend the theme for the decor of the shower to different shades of pink.  I started out ordering 2 sets of poufs and 1 set of pink eyelet lanterns.  So cute, but make sure to have enough time as these are time consuming to open and you have to be very careful not to tear the paper.  In the end I had to order one more set of poufs to make sure I had enough to cover my chandelier.  One reason it's always good to plan ahead and lay things out in advance - if it doesn't work you have enough time to adjust!  I also ordered some cute pink sparkly garland and some pink food picks to match.
Eyelet lanterns $9.75 for 3

Poufs $9.99 for 5

Food picks $6.07 for 24

To add some more personality I picked up pink napkins, pink towelettes, pink paper plates and pink cutlery from Dollar Tree for $1 each.  I also ordered pink and gold straws from Etsy along with some cute white lace napkins from Amazon.  At the last minute I picked up 3 pink tablecloths and a lace and burlap runner for $5.97 (not shown but available in Walmart stores).  My mother in law was kind enough to loan me some mason jar cups and clear glass plates so I got those for free, but the mason jars are available here for less than $1 each or here for $2 each (with 20% off coupon) and the glass plates are available here for $1 each or here for $7.99 for 6 (with 20% off coupon).

Pink paper plates $1 for 20 

Lace embossed napkins $6.49 for 22

Mason jar mugs $7.99 for 4 

Pink table cloth $0.97 each

Total expenditure for all items was only $71.73!
