showering karis with love

This summer I had the pleasure of helping my client Leslie plan a bridal shower for her younger sister Karis.

You may remember the inspiration board I posted which was inspired by a piece of beautiful pink and gold lame fabric I found at Wal-Mart of all places and some gold containers I found for a steal while out shopping.

The shower was held in The Cellar located in the basement of the restaurant CU in Waterloo.  Joe and his staff were extremely helpful and accommodating to work with. Guests were treated to an array of delicious appetizers and Scratch cupcakes for dessert.  They could also scroll over and enjoy massages as the shower progressed.  As you can see from the picture below, a fun time was had by all.  The love everyone felt for Karis was evident.

A special note about the cupcake tower; it’s an antique piecrust table I found while thrifting one day in my local Salvation Army retail store.  It needed some love and thanks to my husband, it got it.  When I saw it sitting all by its lonesome, I knew it needed me and I needed it; it was meant to be.  I’m thrilled with the way it turned out! Here’s a quick before picture:
Now back to the shower pictures…..

Thank-you Leslie for entrusting me with such a special day!
Love ya’ll,
