Bridal Shower Inspiration

With my sister’s and my best friend’s baby shower both in the next two weekends I have been thinking about nothing but showers!  While a baby shower can obviously have a different twist, bridal showers and baby showers are equally fun to plan.  Here’s a look at some ideas to incorporate if you’re planning a shower.

DIY Decor

My sister is pregnant and we are in the stages of planning her shower.  I’ve been dying to go all out on decorations, of course using my DIY skills!  Here are some decorations I love, and think would be perfect for any wedding celebration.
