As a first time bridesmaid, I am having a ton of fun with all of the planning, decorating, purchasing and crafting that comes along with the “job.” Oh, and the celebrating of course : ) We’re hosting her shower at my house mid-May and I’ve been busy with little projects to place here and there as decor. Check out my top 3 easy bridal shower DIY projects – I promise they’re as easy as they are cute!
First up – a tulle table skirt. I found inspiration for this on Pinterest but it was for a wall backdrop instead. As we’ll be outside for the shower, there won’t be many walls to work with, so I simply shortened the length to be a table skirt instead! I plan on adding die-cuts with their wedding hashtag interspersed through out the strands.
Number two on my list was to begin hand-lettering some of the chalkboards I had lying around. And in case you were wondering, I randomly have a LOT of chalkboards lying around. I went with this catchy wedding themed phrase for my first attempt (I really need a chalk pen for #2) but I definitely plan on incorporating their names and hashtags into a few others. And probably a “bubbly bar” sign as well, because duh ; )
Last but not least, custom water bottle labels! Seriously the easiest way to add some personality to any party – and possibly the cheapest! Use Photoshop or Canva to create the label (I suggest 8×2 inches), save as a jpeg, and fill a single Word document with as many as you can fit. Print them out on full sheet label paper, cut, and apply!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my ideas – but even more so, I hope you have a few to share! I’m counting on you seasoned bridesmaids for some comments with all of your tips and tricks for making the wedding (and shower and bachelorette) her best days ever! Happy Wednesday!
