I work as a Social Director for a country club community in Florida, and one of my jobs is to do event planning for them. I love doing it, and I had the opportunity to create a special bridal shower r for my sister Jill, who will be marrying her intended, Adam, on April 22nd in a cruise ship wedding. Befitting of the upcoming event, I did a nautical theme to celebrate with friends and family. After all these years of creating events for other people, how wonderful that I had the chance to do this for my sister!
I started with a blue and white piece of fabric, ordered online that became the table cloth. It was a durable canvas material and I plan to finish off the edges to make this a “real” tablecloth.
Details, details… next came a basket of cutlery wrapped with a napkin, some twine and a lifesaver candy.
My daughter Lacey and niece Noelle helped with the nautical cupcakes. They were so pretty! We decided to make edible sea glass to sprinkle on top along with some raw sugar for a “sand” effect.
They were vanilla with a touch of orange, and a cream cheese frosting. More decorations included 3 little “messages in a bottle”.
