I wanted to do a mini re-cap of sorts of the Bridal Shower I co-hosted two weekends ago. My best friend is having a rustic themed wedding, and is using burlap everywhere and any where she can! With that being said I made sure to incorporate burlap throughout her shower.
Last week I shared with you how I transformed mason jars by wrapping burlap and twine around them and made them into drinking glasses for the shower. If you missed this tutorial you must check-out my Burlap Wrapped Mason Jars. They were a huge hit and best of all are eco friendly and can be used over and over again.
I also shared how I made the most amazing and eco friendly Bridal Shower favor around, Lemon Tea Sugar Scrubs. You can make these sugar scrubs by using a few kitchen products, and best of all its good for you and the environment!
I wrapped my best friend’s shower gift in a neutral green and adorned it with wire cloth ribbon. I used my Bowdabra to create a simple bow for the package.
I made her card out of a recycled paper and stitched two burlap hearts (tan and green) on to the front of the card. I used the Martha Stewart Crafts Bone Folder tool which aloud me to easily fold a crease in the card. I made the back of the card an inch longer so I could write “Congrats” on the side.
No party is complete without a bunting banner. Mr. Woodsy helped cut out all the “flags” and I sewed the flags on to twine (which was a bit difficult to sew on). If you don’t want to sew it on you could easily use hot glue and I bet it might even go faster!
I used a beige and a light green burlap for the flags. I made two different burlap bunting banners. One solid green and one solid beige. I figured my best friend could use these at her reception if she wants too!
Lastly, I made perforated food cards for our luncheon. I hate having to repeat myself over and over again telling guest what each item is. I also hate being a guest and not knowing what I’m eating. That’s why its always a nice thing to make food tent cards for your food. It’s a win-win for everyone. I found a font that I loved, printed it on recycled card stock and used a coordinating textured card stock as the backing.
