Recently I helped out with one of the most breath taking Bridal Showers I had ever been to. It was for one of my best friends from high school that is getting married over seas in the fall. Needless to say it was almost a miniature wedding. It took place at the Hawthorne Inn in Historic Salem, Ma. 

The overall theme was gardening but with a Victorian inspiration. I have to share my favorite part of the shower the photo stand favors. The brides brother hand bent nearly 40 forks to hold a picture of the bride and the groom. If the bride and groom weren’t stunning enough look at the finished photo stand below. 

Below are the Bridal Shower invitations that I had designed for the event. Make sure to stop back again on Monday for a special Bridal Shower Round Up. 

Sharing is caring!

  1. Those photo stands are awesome! I love the fonts you chose for the invitation. It’s amazing!

  2. I love your invitations! The fork stands are really cool! They would make a good favor for any kind of party.

    1. Thanks, Kelly. I thought so too. Its proudly displayed on my shelf (well right now in a moving box).

  3. This is so clever! Love it. The invite is pretty awesome too. Will pin this for my future DIL. May use something similar as an invite for the rehearsal dinner. Nice to met you at Haven.

  4. What a clever idea for a favor! Love the invitations. They are sort of like a very nice chalkboard infographic from a chic cafe. What was the recipe card for?

    1. Thanks Rachel! We had each guest bring a recipe card or two and put them into a recipe box for the bride. That way she can have some family and friend recipes overseas.
