A Pink Bridal Shower in Pictures

Yesterday, I posted about planning a bridal shower. Here it is in pictures!

A couple of weeks ago, the Doyle Girls (my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and myself) pulled off our big surprise bridal shower for my future sister-in-law, Lauryn! I am so unbelievably excited with how well it turned out! Here it is in pictures (and some brief captions too).

As a reminder, here is the mood board from our planning:

The Details

Here’s the picture I put on Instagram to show an overview of the DIY touches for this shower:

The food table, thanks to the combined effort and help from family and friends:

This platter actually says “Doyle” and can be personalized with your name and colors and bought at my shop Personally Yours by Dory.

This cake was done by the amazing baker Raegan Gibson of Sweets and Soirees, who also made our wedding cake. These were the same flavors as our wedding cake (although ours looked quite different).

The drinks: pink lemonade and a strawberry and mint-infused water.

One of my favorite details from the shower is the mason jars with cupcake liner tops and paper straws.

Almond cake with European buttercream frosting. The frosting tastes really light, like a sweetened butter. It doesn’t have an over-frosted flavor at all!

DIY paper flowers decorated the tables.

Paper pom pom flowers were all around the clubhouse.

We also had streamers and paper fans to add other pink decor.

The gift bags for the guests: “S’more Love for Kevin and Lauryn.”

The photo booth set-up: a camera, tripod, and remote control. The backdrop was hung up with tape on the wall. For future photo booths, I would recommend buying 2 yards of fabric (instead of 1), so the camera didn’t have to be so close up.

The props were cut using my Silhouette Cameo (and some creative tracing of designs). They were hot-glued onto bamboo skewers that I found in the floral section of the craft store. I separated them into 4 jars: moustaches, wearable props, accessories, and eye-glasses.

The “guest book.” The guests wrote a message or piece of advice for Kevin and Lauryn on a Jenga block, so they could play Jenga and always remember those wise words of wisdom.

“Don’t Say It!” Game. Guests each had a necklace with wedding rings on it. They couldn’t say bride, groom, Big Day, or wedding. If they were caught saying these words, they had to give a wedding ring away. The winner had the most rings by the end of the party.

“Who Knows Who Best?” Game. Kevin and Lauryn both had to answer these questions. Then, the guests received the questions as well. They had to guess if Kevin and Lauryn would have a matching answer or a miss. They could earn one point for each guessed correct. Then, if they wanted bonus points, they could actually write the answer.

As part of the invitations, Pat (my mother-in-law) sent recipe cards to the guests. They would fill it out and return it with their gifts. We then had this collection of family recipes to send home with Lauryn. I also received this at my bridal shower, and it is still our go-to source for dinners and desserts.
