Crafts for a Vintage Bridal Shower

Yesterday was my youngest sister Kooks bridal shower.  We had an old-fashioned homely vintage theme with florals, polka dots and pastels.  In the preceding days, I and the kids pulled out my craft materials and made a big mess creating banners, frames and garlands.

Little Lady helped with spray-painting the chunky wooden letters.  I use these ones from Ryman's and I really like the shape and size.

I had to raid all of my paper and card stacks to find the right type of florals and pastel colours for the banner.  It ended up so long I had to assemble it as three strands.

A doily gave the frame an old fashioned look.

The kids cut out these hearts and worked out the best way to string them onto ribbon.  My favourite thing about this was that it kept the kids busy for a while.

I spent most of the time creaking and heaving trying to find a comfortable position.  Thankfully Little Lady did lots of the fetching and tidying of materials.  She can be grumpy at the best of times, but the chance to do crafty activities together really gets her in a good mood and makes her helpful.

The bridal shower itself was a very enjoyable afternoon.  Pic's of the finished crafts and the party to follow!
