Bridal Shower!

Yesterday we had Chelsea's bridal shower!
Isabel and I worked very hard on it for the last 2 weeks.
This outfit was Isabel's gift to her sister!
I managed to snap a very few pictures right before the shower started, and then my battery died! One of the bridesmaids took reallt great pictures which I will share when I get them.
This is the punch table with traditional punch, ice bucket, and lemonade. The punch bowl on the right with the lemonade was thrifted for $6.00! It came with 10 cups and a floating glass ladle! I was able to pick up extra glass punch cups for .50 cents a piece at Goodwill. I now own about 35!
This is a quick snap of the bridal table. I wish I had a better one to show you. I love all of the satin chair covers and for the bridal table we stuck little flower bouquets in the back!
This is a lace parasol that my girlfriend borrowed to me. This gets passed around in her family whenever anyone has a shower.You just change the ribbons and flowers to match the brides colors.  She comes from a family with 15 kids, so she has like 7 or 8 sisters. This has been passed around a lot and its still in great shape.
 I was honored she offered to let me use it!
This is the party favor, a candy buffet! All of the glassware was thrifted, and then I polished up the silver serving spoons from my own family set of silver. It all looked so pretty!
Isabel and I made all the boxes. They were supposed to have a little plastic bag of candy with a ribbon, but we decided to punch holes on the sides and add a handle. We tied 2 little silver rings on the handle with the organza ribbon. Love the way they turned out!
I wish I had a good picture of the whole room to show you. 
It all turned out so pretty!
We had so much fun and all of our family and friends truly showered her with everything she will need to set up her new home in September when she gets married!
We are so blessed!
