A red envelope lined with pink and white striped vintage wallpaper (which I bought at a thrift store at least a year ago and just KNEW it would come in handy some day. I was right. Also, Melissa hates thrift stores and I love them so HA my friend.)
…and you pull the lids off the canisters…
I even rigged up my sewing machine using a popsicle stick so I would get straight lines, genius! My OCD would not have handled that well otherwise.
I was pretty proud that I got all the lines to line up perfectly — small victories my friends.
At the shower we served sweet and spicy foods and I made signage with our little logo on it with teal card stock and more wallpaper.
It was a brunch shower and I just could not resist the cereal bar pun. I cut them into heart shapes and dipped them in white chocolate with pink sprinkles. Why the heck not, I say. I used light pink, dark pink and red ribbon to make a super simple table runner down the middle of the table…
…and I found some great floral print napkins at Crate and Barrel in her colors (and gives a little hint to some of her wedding day decor I’ve been privy to!) We mixed in some red and white polka dot napkins 1) because Amy and I were both paranoid about running out of anything and 2) I can’t resist bold patterns all mixed together–like, oh no you didn’t!!! Oh yes, I certainly did.
I stuck to teal, red and pink candy and included blue raspberry jelly beans, Twizzlers, Hot Tamales, Starburst, Swedish Fish, Sour Patch watermelons and cookies and cream Hershey Kisses. Teal candy isn’t so easy to come by in case you were wondering. I also really wanted to use the mustache mold that did not arrive in time for Tony’s baby shower so I melted down cinnamon candies and made some spicy ‘staches.
The bride got some candy to go for herself and the Mr.!
Amy made an awesome game of the “spice” variety and Melissa even got a few gifts to boot!
