Bridal Shower Gift Reveal

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend’s sister got married! I had made her a Wedding Advent Calendar so that she could open a gift every day for two weeks leading up to the wedding. Even though I know she didn’t play by the rules, she still seemed to love it. So I thought I would list out the gifts inside!

Small gifts like these are great because they can be totally personalized to the bride. My boyfriend’s sister is kind of laid back so most of her gifts were just for fun or to build her an emergency kit for the day of the wedding. You could also definitely do a lingerie themed one, which would be great for a bachelorette party. I just tried keep all of the items I could in a blue or white color scheme.

13: Que Bella Relaxing Lavender Face Mask

12: Funky Pen – any cute pen will do!

11: Sticky Note Pad Set – for all of those last minute reminders

10: Essie Top Coat

9: Burts Bees Hand Salve, Cuticle Cream, and Lip Shimmer in Champagne

8: Fun Socks!

7: Tiny Journal (Papyrus is a great place to look)

6: Bride’s favorite chocolate or candy!

5: First set of emergency items- hand sanitizer, lint roller, small pack of bandaids

4: More fun socks!

3: Mini flossing brushes

2: Tide To Go Stick

1: Mini Sewing Kit

I Do: Pretty Cosmetic Bag (to put the emergency items in) – I got a floral one from Target that is no longer in stock but this is a cute option!

I was really thrilled when I saw that Anna had turned the board that the gifts were on into a photo display for the escort card table. It was really sweet, especially for someone who doesn’t typically craft!

Bridal Shower

In the midst of finals and finishing my thesis, I helped Jack’s mom with the decorations and games for his sister’s bridal shower!

I made a Miss to Mrs sign out of card stock, and hung it in front of the gifts. I also made big paper pom poms, and three fun games about what is in your purse, bridal superstitions, and who has the groom? where whoever has a picture of the groom in their envelope wins!

The groom’s family made the centerpieces, which were also favors for the guests.

My favorite part was the Wedding Advent Calendar I made! for the two weeks before the wedding, Anna will be opening little gifts to get her excited, and also prepared, for the big day! After the wedding I will do another post that lists all of the gifts, but for now here is the final product:

The bags are from Target, and the foam board and ribbon are from Michael’s!
