Bridal Bingo Game


Last spring I ran a sort of trial run of designing my own bingo game for the bridal shower, I knew that most of the pre-printed games would not have the right "feel" for Meagan's shower. I designed the grid using my gypsy and the chore chart cartridge and made a few samples.Seemed simple enough......


A few samples and 20 actual game boards are two very different things!! It took me days to finish them all, each  individual letter glued into place, and each word cut and taped to the board...they were a true labor of love......and in the end they were quite lovely. Meagan packaged candy hearts in wax bags to use as bingo markers, and everyone enjoyed the game.


Look how beautiful the game cards look on our table. I knew all that work would be worth it....until someone shouted "bingo" when just the 5th word was called out!!! *giggle* and in just 3 short minutes the game was done....
and my daughters both laughed at me .....
our own little private joke.......
its a moment, a memory that brings happy tears.....
that was worth it all, I wouldn't change a thing!


I just loved all of the pretty cups and saucers at the tea room, this one reminded me of the tea parties the girls and I would have when they were little girls. We would have strawberries, ice tea in our fine china, little cupcakes, and I would let them choose their grandmothers linens to grace the table. Chelsea would ask for me to play "dancing music" and Meagan would speak in her best princess accent...and we would all giggle too much to actually eat anything! Those were good times......

and now we have these new good times...... new memories to giggle about, and I feel so blessed!

Thanks for sharing the details - the bingo may have been a short game but you are right, the memories are what matters! Sounds like a lovely time with your girls!
