Gift Table Decor {and a winner!}

This past Saturday was my daughters Bridal tea......nothing makes a wedding feel more "real" than the beginning of the festivities that start the countdown! {insert panicked mothers face here} :D   I have been to many, many bridal showers and this one was probably the most fun ever!  {no.... not because I hosted it} it was entirely due to the amazing ladies who attended, and the wonderful attentive staff at the Dickens tea room. An English tea, with all the charm and beauty of a day with royalty....add to that a few fun games, and silly antics, well now you have a party!

 I wanted to share a few individual items with you
 before I show you the whole shower, some of the projects are worthy of a highlighted post, and may get lost in a sea of gorgeous photos! One such item is this wooden sign I embellished for the gift table. I found a wood cutout at Michael's, enrobed it in pink paint, and with my Cricut cut out a few blooms using the flower shoppe cartridge.

I'm just thrilled with the way this sign turned out, it looked fabulous in the tea room and guests knew where to park the gifts before they sat for tea and cucumber cream cheese sandwiches. The flower centers are adorned with coarse glitter and little stamen decorations by Wilton {found in the cake decorating section} I recommend hot glue to affix the flowers to the sign, they are big, and a little wouldn't want a flower jumping ship in the midst of your soiree!

Me and my sweet girlies! I can't wait to show you more of the shower but before I do that...........

How about a cartridge winner!

The winner of the Robot party cartridge and gypsy sleeve is:

Happy Birthday and good luck with everything for your daughter's wedding. I love the sophistication and whimsy of your work.
