Bridal Shower Games and Prizes

CLOTHES PIN


We played this game at a bridal shower I helped with a few weeks ago.  I decorated the clothes pins in the theme colors of the wedding (Teal, Lime Green and Gray).

When guests arrive to the party, each one is given a clothes pin and instructed NOT to mention the Bride's name, cross her ankles or cross her legs.  If someone catches another person saying her name, or crossing legs/ankles, they (the person that said her name) must give up their clothes pin to the "catcher."  At the end of the shower, the person with the most "pins" is declared the winner and WINS a prize.  This is a fun way of keeping the party interactive and helps people to relax a bit easier.

Supplies:

  • Clothes Pins
  • Pretty Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun

WORDS OF WISDOM

I helped with a bridal shower a few weeks ago and wanted everyone to share some advice for the bride to be.  The maid of honor had some pretty 3x5 notecards to be used and placed in a future scrapbook.  Each card had a different design on the one side and the other side was blank for the note.  The comments were so beautifully written and I was truly blessed by them!

FINISH MY SENTENCE


We played this game at a bridal shower I attended a couple of years ago.  After you've been married for years, couples can almost finish each others sentences:  see if you can finish the common phrases below!

1.  A happy house is full of laughter
2.  Behind every great man is a successful woman
3.  True love conquers all
4.  When the going gets tough the tough gets going
5.  A stitch in time saves nine
6.  My house is your house
7.  The path of true love never runs smooth
8.  Variety is the spice of life
9.  Every man's home is his castle
10.  A watched pot never boils
11.  A penny saved is a penny earned
12.  Home is where the heart is
13.  Marriages are made in heaven
14.  If the shoe fits wear it

TOILET PAPER BRIDE


1.  Divide the guests into teams. The teams can consist of however many guests you feel appropriate.  Each team selects a "bride" to model the toilet-paper "dress."
2.  Distribute three or four rolls of toilet paper to each team.
3.  Set a timer for 20 minutes and instruct the teams to dress their "bride" in a "bridal gown," using only the rolls of toilet paper.
4.  After time is up, each team's bride will parade in front of the real bride-to-be, who will choose her favorite dress.
5.  Award a prize to each member of the winning team.

Bonus points if a team designs a veil and bouquet!

PRIZES


One of my girlfriends asked me to help with a bridal shower for a mutual friend and we decided that I would help with games and prizes.  The bride's colors are:  Teal, Lime Green, and Charcoal Grey.  I didn't get any photos of the prizes before I wrapped them (silly me) but I ended up going to HomeGoods and purchased a silver picture frame, a glass vase, and a glass serving platter.  The mothers of the bride and groom both won one of the games and I was so happy they received these gifts.  It was just perfect!  The large bag with tissue paper was my gift to the bride, a little pretty something from Victoria's Secret!

Dresser turned TV stand makeover!

Tonight, I am so excited to share with you what hubby has been working on for the last few months in his spare time.  Let me preface by saying that we've had our TV hanging on the wall above our fire place since we purchased it about a year ago.  And though I liked it there and it fit well, it wasn't exactly what I had in mind.  You see, while the TV is on and you're sitting on the sofa curled up in a warm blanket drinking hot tea, you can't have the gas fireplace running.  Not only do I use the TV for viewing movies and television shows, but I listen to a lot of music through it.  I love our fireplace but would love it more if I could use it!  So to solve that problem I was on a mission to find a nice TV stand.
After searching online and finding a lot of great furniture options, I realized I didn't really want to spend any money.  We had a dresser gifted to my husband years ago that we were planning on selling or donating but I really wanted to find a new use for i…

Homemade Mod Podge

We all know how expensive Mod Podge is at the craft store, right?  And since there are so many projects which use it, I thought I could find a homemade version online.  Love pinterest!  This is seriously the easiest DIY project I have ever done.
Supplies: A Jar (I rescued an empty Tostitos Creamy Spinach Dip Jar YUMMM which was on its way out to be recycled)Elmer's White Glue (I used two 4 fl oz bottles)Water Before I made the Mod Podge, I washed out the jar and spray painted the lid silver.  I also took off the label from the jar and did my best to get rid of all of the adhesive (first tried a paper towel and rubbing alcohol, but it didn't work and then I tried olive oil and it worked like a charm). Instructions: Empty glue into jarFill the empty glue bottle with water and pour into the new jar with the glue  (Ideally, you want 50% glue and 50% water)Shake, Shake, SHAKE the jar That's it!  You have made homemade mod podge!  EASY PEASY!
You can get a little fancy and create a lab…

TWO YEARS | remembering our miscarriage

We all have that day. The day when our world changed forever. For us, it was the day we lost our little one. I don't cry much anymore, but I remember. The pain isn't raw as it once was, but I will never forget.
I remember the day I found out I was pregnant. The day I told my husband he was a daddy to be. I remember the dreams we had for this baby. Our hopes. Our plans. Our future. I remember our normally un-snuggly dog coming up to me and nuzzling her head under my arm pit, resting her head on my belly as if she knew there was a little life growing inside of me. I remember the prayers. So many prayers. We prayed every night for this baby of ours. For their future. For their health. For their life. The unbelievable love.
The warmth of the sun and the smell in the air.
I remember the darkness descending. The blood. The emergency room. The tests. The feelings of fear. The spoken words. The reality dawning. The unimaginable pain.
The surgery.
The pain isn't raw as it once was…
