As you might have noticed in the last post, we used Kelsey's K monogram for the shower theme and we brought it in a lot of places. So here are some more of the details from the shower, this post is definitely picture heavy ;) Things started out with the wreath that I made for the front door out of tissue paper flowers.
I was inspired by the picture below from Pinterest and then I made a ton of little tissue paper flowers and tied them to a piece of poster board that I cut out in the shape of the K from the shower monogram.

I created each centerpiece by hand with all of the flowers that we got at local shops. I love arranging flowers and making these low centerpieces was a lot of fun. I tied pink ribbon around each centerpiece vase and added Kelsey's K monogram to tie into the theme of the event.

Since it was a really nice day outside, we had 3 more tables outside on the deck. Here I mixed up the pink and silver tablecloths and we had two square tables and one round table. The centerpieces and table numbers were the same as the other tables. I also used different silverware and china for each table out there as well.

Inside, I decorated the mantle with lots of different glassware, including mason jars, bud vases, etc and filled them with different pink flowers. I placed all of this on top of wide pink ribbon that I had draped over the mantle. I also hung the letters of Kelsey's new monogram from the mantle with pink ribbon.

We had so much delicious food and I think everyone really enjoyed it. There were so many options for sandwiches, quiches, fruit and veggies. It was really good and still pretty healthy for you!
We had a ton of wonderful desserts and of course everything tied in with the monogram theme. The cake from Sweet Memories had a replica of the monogram painted on a fondant topper. Each of the jar desserts also had a monogram on the lid.

After lunch, we played a game that is a spin on the traditional toilet paper wedding dress game. Instead of toilet paper however, the groups each received a bag with various supplies so that they could fashion their own more realistic wedding dress. Each bag contained satin, tulle, various types of white ribbon, silk flowers, bobby pins, safety pins and scissors.

We gave the groups about 15-20 minutes to make their creations and it was a ton of fun. We got a lot of really unique dresses and some pretty successful dresses. After their dresses were complete, we had everyone gather together in the living room for a fashion show to show off each dress.

Then, after all of the dresses had been shown, Kelsey got to pick the winner. It was a lot of fun and then she posed for a picture with the models.
