Showered With Love

The past 2 summers I have been in weddings for some of my closest friends.  I am actually a little sad that this year I am not in any weddings!  Last summer I was the maid of honor in my friend Rebecca's wedding, and the summer before I was a bridesmaid in my cousin Stephanie's wedding.  We threw Stephanie and Brandon a Cinco de Mayo themed couples shower and it was so fun!

Moustaches, sombreros, margarita cupcakes, and (unpictured) margaritas and fajitas...what could be more fun??  I can't remember which cupcake recipe I used, but I found this one that seems similar.  They were a hit!

I threw Rebecca's bridal shower at my parent's house in San Antonio and was so thankful to have my Mom's help!  I planned ahead, so had most of the decor created before getting in to town so I mainly had to work on the food preparations.  I followed this tutorial for the tissue paper garland on the fireplace and used this link to get the printables for the "Bride to Be" banner.  For this banner, I printed out the letters and then used Mod Podge to secure them to scrapbook paper by Mod Podging over both layers.  I hung them up using cute little mini clothespins and a ribbon. The printable banner also worked for the bachelorette party!

I had so much fun being a part of my friend's weddings!  Cheers to both of the (not so) newlywed couples! 

Love Always, Nancy J
