Bridal Shower Decoration Ideas....

Good morning all you lovely ladies (and a couple gents, I see?) 

How's everyone doing this morning??

I'm great.  Just finished some apple slices with cinnamon and peanut butter, and now I'm scouring the internet in search of fun, unique, DIY bridal shower ideas.  I've been asked to help with decorations for a friend's shower, and I couldn't be more thrilled!  She's doing various shades of green, so that should be very fun.  I've got a few ideas, thought I would run some by you guys to get an opinion.  Oh and you just have to see this girl.  She is so gorgeous!

They're just so stinkin' cute!


So here's her dress so far...made by my amazing friend Jennifer.  You can visit her site at http://www.jennifernicolecox.com/

The bride-to-be is modeling it after Grace Kelley's dress.  How cool!  Anyway, its not all the way done yet but just to give you an idea. 

So I think for the shower, I'd like it to feel very comfortable.  Very "homey" and "flowy"  (Real technical designer terms,huh?  haha)  Ok, try this one on for size then, smartypants:  Ethereal.   Thats definitely what I am going for.  Lots of white and green gossamer, delicate lace, mason jars and candles, flowers floating in wide, shallow bowls. 

I'm excited!!  So ok, here's some inspiration photos.  What do you think?

Well, this should keep me busy for awhile.  Busy is good.  :) 

Oh, guess what?  IT SNOWED TODAY!!!  I think Winter is comin' early.  Sad, because I haven't even worn 3 fall outfits yet. haha.  I'm not ready for snow.

I started my meal plan today...6 small meals, hardcore workout.  I'm gonna be back in size 5's if it's the last thing I do! 

In case you're curious:

Breakfast:  Smoothie made of strawberries, peanut butter, vanilla yogurt, milk, whey powder, and ice

Snack #1:  Apples and peanut butter with cinnamon

Lunch:  Whole wheat tortilla with chicken, onion, feta, and lettuce...dipped in salsa

Snack #2:  More of that same smoothie.  I hope they dont' expect me to drink ALL of that at breakfast! 

SIDE NOTE:  I am funky on consistency and texture.  Can't do oatmeal, can't eat Gushers, can' stand the way peas are cruchyish on the outside and creamy on the inside.  I CAN'T DO MELTED SMOOTHIE.  I WILL gag. haha.

Dinner:  Dinner will be a concoction on hoagie rolls consisting of onions, turkey, bell peppers, cheese, and feta.  mmmmmm.  I like dieting! :)

man... that's sounds so good. I love feta. That picture of the 'barn' reception is soooo beautiful. I'm that kinda girl at heart, but I ended up having the traditional 'hotel' reception. (and glad about it really- we had an ice storm the night we got married, so we all kept safe and toasty!) I started this calorie counting/food diary- and it really helped me.
