I Found My Main Squeeze – The Perfect Bridal Shower

First of all, a HUGE thank you to my wonderful maid of honor and bridesmaids who planned the most amazing bridal shower! My only request was that it be lemon theme because I thought it was so dang cute from what I had seen on Pinterest. They ran with it and coordinated everything from decorations and games to snacks and drinks. It was the best feeling to have so many women I love and admire in one room to celebrate the upcoming wedding. It really did mean the world to me. I got home that evening and kept telling my future husband that I was sad it was over because I had a lot of fun! Don’t feel too bad for him, he hosted a relaxing party at our house while I was at the bridal shower and I can’t wait to share photos and details of that as well.

DIY Balloon Arch

If you are new to the blog, one of the big events in 2021 for me is that I am marrying my wonderful fiancé this fall! That means that all the activities are starting up and I am beyond excited. The first event that kicks everything off was my bridal shower at the end of July. I’ll do a post on how perfect that event was very soon. My maid of honor is equally into getting crafty. The day before the bridal shower we met up and started working on a balloon arch for the bridal shower. A fun decoration piece but even more so a great activity for her and I where we got to hang out, laugh, jam to some music, eat snacks, and of course drink coffee.

I’ve included the how to tutorial we used while building our balloon garland below. Pro tip, if you are making an arch like us, make sure to have some command strips to secure the garland to the wall.

DIY Ring Toss – Engagement Party

When we got engaged it was in the midst of quarantine so we didn’t get to celebrate with our family and close friends. Once restrictions started to mellow, we were able to plan a small engagement party (complete with a pizza bus food truck, yes you read that correctly). We held it outside and had hand sanitizer spread throughout so everyone felt more comfortable. Most of all we wanted to make sure we had activities or fun games for our guests to do! This is only one of three activities that was created for the engagement party, and I loved it!

This ring toss definitely reminded me of the carnival games where it feels near impossible to actually get a ring on the bottle but it was so much fun for everyone to give it a go! Read more for the link to the supplies.
