Enjoy the rest of the pictures from the party!

The Bride-to-be’s awesome Maid of Honor made this amazing cake and cupcakes for the party. Check out all of her cakes here.

While the bride-to-be was busy opening gifts, guests played gift Bingo. Print off our free Bingo sheet here and have guests fill in what gifts they think the bride will be opening (like a toaster). As the bride-to-be opens gifts, guests try to make a Bingo!

When guests first arrived at the shower, they were asked to write a note of encouragement to the bride-to-be on lined paper. The notes, along with pictures from the shower, were later put into a small scrap book and given to the bride at the wedding. It is a fun memento that she will have and can look back on everyone’s notes in years to come.

The bride asked a few family members to bake homemade cookies to give away as favors at this shower. I simply added favor tags to brown boxes and guests got to choose which cookies and treats they would like to take home. It was a huge hit! The favor tags for these boxes are now available in our etsy shop!

I wanted to do something special for over the dessert table. After a little research, I found this posterized collage technique on Happy Together. I used a picture from the couples engagement session and used an art canvas instead of a wood plaque. It turned out great and was a wonderful addition to the wall.

Inspired by these great centerpieces on One Charming Party, we made ‘fish bowls’ for each table using blue paper and tiny fish cut-outs in glass vases. Tissue paper flowers were put inside, and the pictures from the couples engagement session were displayed on tables around the room.

This party was a lot of fun to decorate for. The groom’s favorite color is orange (go Texas!) and so we used orange and blue as the main colors. The shower was at a beautiful restaurant, so the only thing we did was the dessert table and the guest’s tables. We collected glass vases and jars and spray painted them all white, then added blue artists tape to give them some fun lines. Orange and blue flowers were picked up at a local craft store and added to the vases, which sat behind the dessert table.

Invitations for this party were kept fun and simple, using the orange and blue color scheme, and the ‘kissing fish’ logo that was used throughout the party. This Kissing Fish Shower Invitation is now available in our etsy shop, along with the other Kissing Fish printables!

Next week we will be sharing all the details to a recent ‘Kissing Fish’ Bridal Shower. Have a great weekend!
