A Winery Wedding Shower

 These are some photos of a small intimate bridal shower I recently hosted at a quaint little Midwest winery.  Our group was given a quick tour of the winery and a private wine tasting.  To help eliminate any busy work during our event the brides maids ordered catering from the winery.  Crackers, cheeses, dips, and a few small appetizers were served as our bride opened gifts.  

 Here is a beautiful moment I captured 

The winery provided basic white table linens, serving ware and glasses but with the help of the other bridesmaids we were able to give this celebration a more personalized look!

A chiffon ribbon was ran down the center of each table with plastic over sized diamond jewels placed on top.  A few small vases of simple red roses were added.  Our party favors, hand made cake truffles, and a wallet sized photo of the couple were also at each place setting.
A quiz on how well guest knew the bride was worked into each place setting.  The questions were printed on regular typing paper then mounted on matching card stock to give color and charm to the table.  The card stock was topped off with a strip of ruffled red ribbon and a scrap booking jewel.

It may be slightly OCD but I always purchase a pack of pens when I am having guest do a writing activity.  This way not only do they all match and look nice but you wont have to go digging through draws in the middle of the party!

Each guest was asked to address an envelope to themselves for when the bride sent out thank you cards.  The addressed envelopes were shuffled and the bride was asked to randomly draw one from the stack.  The person who's envelop was pick received a gift basket as a door prize.
