Ellie's Bridal Shower

On July 24th was my close friend Ellie's bridal shower. We did a 1950's Housewives theme. It was so much fun! Here are some pictures from the party:

Me & the Bride to Be

Cherie (Ellie's soon to be sister-in-law) handing Ellie her attire for the day

Ellie's cupcake apron made specially by Sassy Aprons

Sarah, Ellie's mom, surprised her by flying in from West Virginia for the shower! I didn't get a shot of Ellie's reaction. It took her a minute to realize what was going on and then the water works came!

The Moms and Ellie in their aprons. All by Sassy Aprons.

Let the Games Begin

Pin the Slipper on the Husband
Callie (maid of honor) made the awesome poster.

The results are in. The winner is....

Sarah, Ellie's mom!

Glam up your Cupcake

This is Ellie's cupcake. I made the cupcake toppers. They're super cute! I'll tell you how to make them in a later post. 

My cupcake. In case you can't read what it says, "As promised, she served him his balls on a tray." I found my cupcake amusing.

All of our cupcakes. Mmm yummy!!!

Eleanor's winning cupcake!

1950's Housewife Game
The game is based on the 1950's Good Housekeeping article on how to be a good wife. Cherie read the article aloud. Afterwards there was a quiz to see who would be the best house wife (or who has the best memory).
Ellie's reaction to the article.

The moms' reactions.

Brenda, our grab bag winner! Upon arrival, everyone self addressed an envelope that Ellie will use for thank you cards. Right before the gift opening, Ellie picked the winning envelope.

It was a great time! I'll post some of the fun diy stuff we did for the bridal shower later. For more photos click here.
