Bridal Shower: Decorated with Buttons and Ribbons


When it comes to decorating a party, whether it be a bridal shower, a birthday party, or a wedding….consistently using a couple of  common items can help you pull a theme together.  Take for example, buttons and ribbons.  Easy to find at your local craft or fabric store – when used in just two basic colors,  it helps to give the event a cohesive look.

For this event, I chose a color palette of bold kelly green and royal blue.  Once the seasons start changing and all of the summer flowers are gone – I crave COLOR – and bright colors are an easy way to make a party feel a little more festive.  The green wine glass invitation from Tiny Prints is actually a Christmas party invitation…..but it works perfectly for a wine tasting, a cocktail party, or in this case, a bridal shower!  As you can see, buttons and ribbons are used to decorate the vases, the cake, the dessert buffet and the party favors.  A simple and affordable embellishment – give it a try at your next party!
