and I was asked to put together a pretty & shabby chic Spring bridal shower for my client (and good friend) Zoe which included lollies, desserts and a champagne bar. The colours for this party were a pale aqua; influenced by the shade of some gorgeous little photo frames I found as well as pale pink and peach which were the predominant colours in some fabric remnants I had leftover from another event that I had planned to use. I crafted for a while for this party with some old vintage cake and biscuit carriers glued down onto painted candle sticks and given a new lease of life and turned into cake stands with pretty ribbon and fabric tied around the bases. I also found a simple wicker basket at a garage sale that I painted aqua and tied fabric to the handles. Treats on the table included chocolate brownies, caramel fudge, cake pops, cupcakes and ombre marshmallow pops plus a selection of lollies in jars. Cake and marshmallow pops were stuck in a vintage bread baking tray that I wrapped with pretty fabric and ribbons and favour bags were simply decorated with aqua ric-rac glued to the top. Glass jars were simply decorated with craft roses glued onto the sides and filled with pink grapefruit and champagne jelly and I served pink champagne in glittered glasses (followed the tutorial I found on-line from http://somethingturquoise.com/2011/10/21/diy-glam-champagne-glasses/ ) with ‘Zoe loves Sam’ tags stuck to sugar swizzle sticks in each glass.
