Cortneys Bridal Shower

I threw Cortney a bridal shower today!

We live in Ohio and what do you know there was a massive snow storm that came through. Not everyone was able to make it to the shower but we still had a nice turn out.

I wanted to share what we did for it!

Here is my pinterest page. I used pinterest for my inspiration for everything. Check under my “Cortney’s Bridal Shower Board”.

Got this idea from Pinterest and figured we could do it ourselves instead of ordering it. And it came out perfect! How yummy.

We choose strawberry cupcakes with a strawberry icing. I will upload that recipe asap! We also just bought a black cardboard piece to keep them on.

We played two games. Very simple yet fun for all! The “He Said/She Said” game was a downloadable link from Pinterest!

For the winners of the game I ordered very cute lip balms from gcd spa.

Finally, for the party favor we choose to make Carmel Popcorn. My Mom found these adorable Chinese boxes on clearance at Target and we knew they would be perfect!

Family Pictures by LB Photography

Lori (LB Photography) and I had planned to meet up in November 2012 to have our family pictures done! Well that day didn’t quite work out so we finally found time again a few weeks ago.

We looked at a few color options/poses on Pinterest. We knew we had to find some good poses considering we had 14 people! Here were a few poses Lori had pinned on pinterest for our big family: http://pinterest.com/LBBoutique12/family-photo-shoot/

We decided on blue/tan/white with a little bit of pink added in! (Love these colors and we both agreed they would look nice all together). Lori said we need some patterns to be added in so it wouldn’t be so plain. Stripes, plaid, layers it was! It was stressful trying to coordinate 14 peoples outfits but staying on the color scheme we just had to make sure we didn’t have too many stripes/etc.

They came AMAZING!! We did 2 group shots followed by each individual family.

I had heard the song “Don’t Ya” on the radio a few months back. Fell in love with it instantly.

Brett Eldredge’s debut album “Bring you Back” came out on Tuesday and it has been playing on repeat in my car every since!

How about this performance in an elevator. Such an amazing voice.

You have got to check him out. Not only for the music but because he is REALLY good looking as well 🙂
