Please Join Us For A
Bridal Shower Honoring
When: August 1 Time: 6:30p
Holly is marrying a professional chef, so recipe cards are not needed. Instead on the card provided, write a creative idea for a date (maybe something that corresponds with the gift you bring). Please come hungry, as we will be having dinner.

Taren also helped with setup and watching Calder so that everyone could get ready and get dinner made.
I made a ton of tissue paper pom poms and used them to deocorate the entire house. We also used flowers in white and pink that looked similar to the pom poms. I learned how to make the pom poms from this link on pinterest: http://designdazzle.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/how-to-make-tissue-pom-flowers.html.
|Flowers & Glasses|
We had a formal dinner, rather than small appetizers, for this shower. I wanted to keep the date theme going and the most cliche date is dinner and a movie, so...we set up tables outside (thank goodness for the good weather). We used pink table cloths and flowers to decorate.
You can't have date night without a date, so each partgoer received a date for the night. One lucky lady got the groom. I used my Cricut to cut out the grooms and cut the heads from gossip magazines. I picked both good dates - like Prince William and not so lucky dates - like Chris Brown. The lady who got the groom won the first prize.
The bride got Robert Pattison for a date.
Christian Bale spent the evening with Aunt Donna.
For the next game, people had to identify all of the dates that the partygoers had brought with them. The guests had their dates hold their seats at their tables and mingled as they tried to identify the different A and B List celebs. I included these directions in the envelope with their dates and an answer sheet as well. It just had numbers and blanks on it.
Who’s Your Date Again?
Directions: Pick a seat and have your date “hold your seat for you” by placing them in the place card holder. Forgetting the name of someone’s significant other is so embarrassing, not to mention rude. As you mingle and meet the other guests, please use the enclosed paper to identify the dates of each guest WITHOUT getting any help from any other guests.

I broke up the present opening by showing a clip from each of the movies between a present opening. I also put the movie clips in the order of a wedding.

|Thank You Cards|
One of the gifts that I gave Holly was a stamp with her married name and address. I also handmade these thank you cards that fit with her theme/colors.
