Bridal Shower Tulips

My bridal shower was this past April at the Ethan Allen Hotel. I did the flowers (of course) and my mom made the runners from this great fabric I found by Nicole Miller for Joann Fabric. You can see how great the texture is under the centerpieces. For the flowers, I used a selection of novelty dutch tulips from Holland in tea pots sourced from thrift stores all over Connecticut for this event. Nothing matched and everything was very eclectic, but the fabulous tulips pulled everything together. 

Each guest was given a teacup, also collected from across the state. Imagine the lives these teacups had lead before being filled with some of Dan and my favorite hot beverage items! We had a bag of Japanese green tea or sencha (Harney and Sons has a green option in an easy tea bag), some cuban coffee (Cafe Bustelo, to be exact), a little vial of sugar, and Bonne Maman Mini Honey Jars. 

I wore a crop-top from Forever 21 with this amazing tulle skirt and these truly fabulous heels by Jessica Simpson.  Here's a shot of me wearing my extremely fluffy bows and ribbon hat made my by sister and cousin.
