A Lemon and Navy Bridal Shower

By Seasideinteriors @seasideinterio1
It has been several months since I had the opportunity to help put together a bridal shower for Krissy, a family friend of ours.  I am now finally getting the chance to post about it.  Krissy has probably had 4 children by the time it has taken me to post this, but hey I thought I'd share ;)
We wanted to make it very special for her, so we put together the decorations and I did the desserts, favors, and party printables for the space.  It was a lot of work to get it together, but well worth it when we saw Krissy's face light up when she saw everything finished!
Right by the front door we set up the Favor's Table so that all of the guests could grab a monogrammed cookie and jar of lemon drops.

A Lemon and Navy Bridal ShowerI created a Thanks For Dropping By Sign that matched the theme to fit the 8 x 10 frame.
A Lemon and Navy Bridal Shower I created these little Pucker up printables using some sticker paper from the office supply store and a small circle punch.  I tend to use the sticker paper for most party printables.  It is so easy just to print straight on to the sticker instead of hot gluing the paper down, but whatever you have on hand will work.

Sorry the picture is so blurry, I had to brighten the photo up since there was hardly any natural light in the space.
You can catch the truffles that I tend to make for any occasion off to the left.  I dipped them in white chocolate and drizzled them with yellow chocolate.
For the cake, I iced it in buttercream and created some fondant accent pieces with the lemons and yellow banding around both tiers.
I glued them suckers down with some pretty stiff royal icing.
Here are some more YUMMY cookies...

I don't get the chance to make many cakes and cookies these days unless it is a very special event, so it was so fun to just sit and relax and create these lemon slices and monogram cookies.  I have to say, I came across the most delicious recipe to make sugar cookies and royal icing that tastes SO GOOD!   It is the only sugar cookie recipe I will use.
The recipe is from Sweet Sugar Belle, one of my favorite cookie decorating sites, and you can find the recipe for her Perfect Sugar Cookie Here.
I also switched to her Royal Icing recipe and it is my favorite one too!  You can get the Royal Icing Recipe Here.

We put lots and lots AND LOTS ;) of lemons in glass canisters for simple and pretty decoration. We use these style jars for all of our family birthdays and events.  They are really cheap and versatile!
A Lemon and Navy Bridal ShowerI created several table tents for the event including this Sweeee-tea sign.  You can't have glasses of tea without some lemon slice lids.  Well I guess you could, but they wouldn't be near as cute as these are.  We got them Here  on Etsy.
Here is an overhead shot of the lids.

A Lemon and Navy Bridal ShowerI don't know why I love water bottle labels, but I do!  It is just another way to bring in the theme and color of the party. To keep the running theme of lemons going I made some of these my main squeeze labels.
The food was amazing!!  The Bride-To-Be's Mom put together a beautiful spread.
To finish up labeling some of the food, I created several more table tents including one for the truffles...

I created these lemon sliced tags that my sister added ribbon to so that all the guests could write advice to the NEWLYWEDS.  We then hung the cards on branches to create our own indoor lemon tree.
