Bridal Showers are a fun time to get together and celebrate a Miss before she becomes a Mrs. The blog team and other staff members from Invitations by Dawn were recently able to celebrate with a bridal shower in honor of one of our own. Here. At our office. We celebrated Brooke as she prepared to marry her high school sweetheart, Travis.

While planning, we decided the shower would have a DIY picnic theme. To start, of course, an invitation was needed. With a wonderfully rustic vibe, the Gingham Lanterns Invitation served as the base of our party planning.

Next, we planned a menu that followed the picnic theme.  Sandwiches, carrot and celery sticks, potato chips, and cookies were the eats for the event. YUM!

In order to make for an easy grab and go experience, paper bags were used for the food and the utensils were placed in Heart Burlap Favor Bags.  Organized and cute-what could be better?

Paper lantern decorations matched the Gingham Lanterns Invitation perfectly.

Entertainment for the event: a photo booth complete with streamer backdrop, props, and painted frame. Who doesn’t love photo booth fun?!

Congratulations Brooke!
