Wedding Shower Ideas

Recently I had the opportunity to decorate for a wedding shower.  I already had the black and white polka-dotted umbrella, but my parents gave me the black and white floral one for my birthday.  I knew it would be a perfect addition to my wedding/baby shower decorations!  Of course, as soon as God sends rain to southwest Oklahoma, I will be using it then, too!
This wedding shower was for a family friend.  It is kind of interesting because Jena, the bride-to-be, was the youngest person at my own wedding - almost 23 years ago!  In fact, she was one month old on my wedding day.
......Black and white polka dot theme for the shower decor....
.....and lots of other colors.....
.....Gerber daisies in brights and pastels.....
.....and this turquoise one stolen (borrowed) from my daughter's bedroom....
....feather turquoise lamps - also from my daughter's room...
.....and other decorations I've acquired from speaking at ladies' day events....
Jena's corsage was handmade by one of the hostesses.
So cute to have added little measuring spoons to the ribbons.  Each spoon says a small amount, such as smidgen, pinch, etc.

FYI (added later, after post was sent out):  The plastic flower plates under the Gerber daisies are from Hobby Lobby.  They have lots of bright colors and they were inexpensive!  The vases are empty vegetable cans, washed out and covered with black/white polka dotted tissue paper.  I use paper towels and crinkle paper shreds to fill the containers and hold the flower straight.

Best wishes to the bride-to-be!

Cute! Are those paper flower plates?

No, they are plastic. I found them at Hobby Lobby in their spring/summer collection of bright-colored decorations. They were perfect and I've got them if you ever need them :).
