Boho Bridal Shower Idea

We love all things boho-inspired & our bride Adriana did not disappoint with her bridal shower decor! We were so honored that she incorporated our pieces on her special day, especially since she’s been with us since her bridesmaid proposals. Now, we’re sharing a closer look of her backyard bridal shower to give you some decoration inspo!

Theme & Decor

A rustic wooden backdrop that included an “Almost Mrs.” sign, created by @_mikbydesign, was the first thing guests saw when entering. It made the perfect photo-op for guests to take pictures with the bride-to-be. In addition, the bridal shower incorporated warm neutral tones, unique textures, and mixed florals paired with cushions and balloons to tie the theme together. Throughout the event, subtle signage adorned the entrance, gift table, and mimosa bar.

Seating & Florals 

Guests were able to enjoy each other’s company while being seated around a long white table decorated with rustic decor. Starting off, the decorative plates and beautiful floral arrangements by @prettylilthingslb, made the perfect table setting for the special occasion. A mixture of fresh and dried flower arrangements, which sat along the table, further enhanced the boho decorations. Ultimately, our favorite touch was the large wicker chair at the head of the table for the bride-to-be. It was a gorgeous addition to the shower, and very on-trend for the theme. 

Drinks & Food

Bridal showers aren’t complete without the sweet treats! Adriana had such a yummy dessert table that had a little something for everyone. From donuts to mini-tiramisus, @riassweetsandcatering stole the show with their intricate desserts. They even made a personalized charcuterie board that spelled out “Future Mrs Alvarez” in cheese! All the desserts were displayed on various wooden boards surrounded by eucalyptus stems which complimented the boho theme. Together with the hors-d’oeuvres was a Bubbly Bar station where guests could create their own mimosas with a mixture of fruits & juices.

Bride-To-Be OOTD

You can’t forget about the bride! Adriana was wearing a white two-piece outfit with matching heels for a stylish bride-to-be look! She accessorized her look with our Bride Headband and Personalized Veil. In addition, she threw on our Personalized Fringe Jacket with her new last name. She slayed the look, to say the least. 😍

If you decide to incorporate our pieces in your bridal shower, make sure to tag us on Instagram! We love seeing our products in action. Again, congrats to the lovely couple Mr. & Mrs. Alvarez and thank you to Adriana & her photographer @lizztinphoto for letting us feature her bridal shower. 

How to Fold Round Towels

Start off your summer bachelorette with the cutest Personalized Round Towels for your entire bridal party! Pair them with our Custom Kraft Labels for the perfect welcome favor. It’ll be a memorable and practical gift your girls will never forget.

Our folded Round Towels are our signature look and we’re here to let you in on all the details! Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to achieve our rolled towels look.

1. Lay your towel out on a flat surface. Make sure to smooth out any creases.

2. Fold the towel in half making sure that you can still see the print/design of your towel.

3. Fold the towel in half again.

4. Flip your towel over so the fringe side is down.

5. Begin rolling your towel. We suggest going slow to make sure you have a tight roll.

6. Now that you have your rolled towel, you can add your Towel Label

7. Once applied you can add the rolled towel to the rest of your bachelorette goodies!

This is a simple way to give our towels a super chic look! Make sure to tag us if you try to recreate this look with your towels!

DIY Tie Dye Shirts

Tie dye has been one of the biggest DIY trends this year and we’re obsessed! These DIY tie dye shirts are a great way to spice up your bachelorette tees and take your wedding shirts to the next level! Here’s how to create your own neutral tie dye masterpieces to incorporate into your wedding festivities.

Here’s What We Used:

Making Your Dye:

To start, you need to prepare your dye! First, fill your squeeze bottle halfway with warm water and a teaspoon of salt. Next, add your dye colors (we went for a combo of camel and tan), close it up, and shake. If you are choosing to do more than one color, we suggest labeling your dye bottles so you don’t get them mixed up!

To test the color, take a paper towel and dip it into the dye bottle. Then adjust as necessary until you have the color you want. (Remember the color will look darker than how the final product will turn out).

Prepping Your Tees:

To prepare your tees, you have a few methods to choose from. There’s the classic spiral method, stripe, ombre, and so many others to choose from. We chose the scrunch method to fold our shirts but you can choose whatever technique you like best! Each t-shirt pattern will come out differently depending on what folding method you choose so this is your time to experiment and have fun with it.

Time To Tie Dye:

Now it’s time to start the tie dying process! Caution, the dye can transfer so we suggest working outside with a plastic bin and gloves on just in case the dye stains anything. First, submerge your shirts in water until they are soaked, and squeeze out as much excess water as you can. Transfer them into a large bin and begin dying away! 

Next, squeeze the dye directly onto the shirts making sure to saturate the exposed areas with color. Each shirt will have varying colors and patterns depending on the technique you use!

When you think you’re almost finished, we suggest opening the shirt to check your progress. If there are any patches or white areas, rescrunch the tee and add more dye as needed!

After, use your tees to soak up the excess dye at the bottom of the tub then transfer to a plastic bag and leave to set for at least 2 hours. (You can leave them longer if you’d like).

Wash & Dry:

After the two hours have passed, you’re set to untie your rubber bands and unfold your shirts to reveal the final pattern. Do not panic if the color is super dark, it will lighten once washed & dried! 

Before putting the tees into the wash, make sure to rinse and wring them out until the water runs clear. This helps get as much excess dye out before putting it in the washing machine. Run your shirts through a normal wash & dry cycle and you are all done! 

Throw on your new shirts and have a cute bachelorette photoshoot with your girls! We can’t wait to see all the different patterns & designs you come up with. Don’t forget to tag us on Instagram if you recreate our DIY tie dye shirts!

Have fun!

Boho Picnic Idea

Picnics are the latest trend for bridal party events and we are HERE FOR IT!  We thought a picnic-style welcome lunch would be an adorable way to incorporate this idea for a Bachelorette Party.  Here’s how we put together this BEAUTIFUL boho picnic setup.

boho picnic for your bridal party

Picnic Location

Enjoy a breath of fresh air by planning your picnic outdoors! We love the aesthetic of a beach picnic but realized it might be harder to execute. The park would’ve been just as fun, but we opted for an intimate backyard setting. Remember to provide shade if you’re setting up in a sunny location.

Picnic Backdrop

The best part about a picnic is the cute photo opportunities! Since we didn’t have a beach or park picnic, our setup needed a better background for photos. We started by draping a sheet against the wall to create our canvas and added accent pieces to make the background pop. Then we used a floral partition and transformed extra pieces of plywood to create decorative arches. We even found a cute pattern canvas that tied everything all together. Get resourceful and use what you have!

Table Décor  

Our favorite part about the picnic was the table! It’s what made the entire setup come to life! We found this adorable outdoor coffee table from Houzz and used it as our base. From there we added round placemats and our Miss to Mrs Wood Sign. Our NEW round signs are the perfect centerpiece for a table set up and we even have a personalized version so you can create your own Custom Wood Sign. We even had a special chair just for the bride-to-be. We’re obsessed with the Rattan Flower Chair from Picnic Imports. Finish it off with some pampas arrangements for an extra boho-chic look.

Party Favors, Gifts & Place Cards

It’s all about the details when it comes to picnics! We opted to use some personalized gifts that served as party favors for each bridesmaid + a place card to assign seating.  On top of the seat cushions, we placed our Personalized Beach Hats and Tie Dye Towels – perfect for the pool/beach. On the table, we used our Personalized Jelly Bags and filled them with Palm Print Tumblers, Dried Palm Fans, Bride Tribe Sunglasses, and Custom Swimsuits. This is also the perfect time to incorporate your bachelorette itinerary. We got ours from A Wild Bloom Printables.

Use gifts for your table setting

Have Fun!

Once you’re done setting up, you’re ready to have the best bridal party picnic! We love this picnic setup because you can use it for so many different things. Plan a picnic for your bridal shower or kick off your bachelorette weekend with a brunch! The possibilities are endless, but regardless of the event you choose, this boho picnic setup will be truly memorable!

Intimate Covid Wedding

Cancelled venues, postponed wedding dates, and smaller guest lists – all just a few challenges that came with planning a wedding in 2020 & 2021. We know being a COVID bride is no easy task but desperate times call for desperate – but ultra meaningful – measures. Here’s a look into an intimate wedding from 2020 that had our hearts swooning. 💞

When we saw these pictures of @heyaudreygrace & her hubby @jspurlin in our Mr. & Mrs. Face Masks, we could tell their love was special. Shout out to their photographer @catdossett for capturing these precious moments.

Keeping It Intimate

Audrey and Jason didn’t let COVID put a damper on their I Dos! They kept the wedding going but just invited their immediate family, literally. 8 of their closest loved ones were with them at the chapel, but with the power of technology, the rest of their friends and family were able to join via a video conference.

This mini-matrimony was a moment the two families will cherish forever. It may have been a smaller guest list but the room was still full of love. And *spoiler alert* the bride & groom had a HUGE surprise waiting from them when they walked out the doors as Mr & Mrs.

A Special Surprise

As the couple exited the building they were surprised with a truly incredible send-off. Friends and family came masked up and socially distanced, filling the streets with handmade signs and confetti.

To top if off, their car was even painted and decorated for them to drive off. Creativity and the small details really made this day truly unforgettable!

You Can’t Quarantine Love

We know it hasn’t been the easiest year to plan a wedding, but there’s always a way to make it magical. With Face Masks and Sanitizer Favors from our site you and your guests can still celebrate your love safely and in style. Just look at how stunning Mr. & Mrs. Spurlin look in our matching Bride & Groom Face Masks!

Stay safe and keep spreading love!

DIY Spray Paint Engagement Balloon

Are you ready for the cutest Do It Yourself idea? Our DIY Spray Paint Balloon is the unique touch you need for your engagement photos. It’s a creative spin on our personalized balloon that everyone will be asking about!

Girl holding finished DIY spray paint engagement balloon

This DIY balloon is perfect for those crafty babes that like to add personal touches to their wedding festivities. You can choose your own spray paint colors, ribbon, tassels, & even blow up your balloon as big or small as you wish. No two balloons will turn out the same so you will have an original masterpiece. 

Supplies needed for spray paint balloon

Here’s what we used:

Personalized Balloon w/ Decal

Balloon Pump

Spray Paint

Ribbon (or in our case a blank Bridal Sash)

Balloon Tassels

Balloon Stick

Blowing Up Your Balloon

To start, take your clear balloon and inflate it with air. Our balloons can expand up to 24 inches, so don’t be afraid to go big! You can use a balloon pump like we did here, or you can take it to a party store and inflate it with helium. (Caution: we aren’t sure how spray paint will react to helium since we used a regular air pump for this particular project). Once it’s inflated to your desired size, twist the end and tie in a knot to secure it.

Time to Paint

Now that your balloon is filled, it’s time to get your hands a little dirty with some spray paint! (Hopefully before your new manicure 😉). Since this process can get messy, we recommend going outside in an open space to paint. We decided to go for pink and rose gold spray cans, but you can customize your balloon to fit your own engagement theme!

Go ahead and give your cans a good shake and spray your first color directly onto the balloon. For the best results, we suggest spraying from at least a foot away – don’t get too close as we did notice the plastic balloon did warp a little in areas where we got too close with the paint sprayer. This is when you can let your creativity flow and add as much or as little color as you want. Once you are happy with the first color, then spray your second color to create a splotch effect on your balloon until you reach your desired look.

Finishing Touches

Now that you are done painting your balloon, set it out to dry for a couple of hours. We recommend tying your balloon to a stick so that the paint does not touch any surrounding surfaces. After your balloon is dry, it’s time to get it photoshoot ready! We decorated the stick attached to the balloon with ribbons and tassels to help create the illusion that it is floating in the air. 

For the Go-Getter

If you like the look of the balloon as is, you can stop here, or you can add a personalized decal featuring the new Mrs. Last Name for an added touch. If you need information on how to attach your decal to your balloon, we have a full tutorial with tips and tricks on how to do so here. When attaching your decal, be mindful of the paint on the balloon as some can come off when removing the tape.  It’s best to use a little less paint on the area you are applying the decal or it will be very difficult to apply.  If some parts of the decal don’t stick completely because of the paint not being tacky enough, you can always use a little glue. 📸

We hope you love this DIY balloon idea. Stay tuned for more!
