Girl's Gone Wild Bridal Shower

It’s all wedding around here.
Amanda and Brennen

Kelly’s been working day and night, turning her daughter's wedding reception into a 1950’s wedding dinner.
I can’t believe the wedding is tomorrow.
Amanda’s wedding colors are hot pink and turquoise, but for her bridal shower she wanted hot pink and zebra print.
How cool is that!
Along with the colors came a fierce bridal shower theme
Girl’s Gone Wild.
“Girl’s Gone Wild” in layman’s terms is usually attached with spring break, way too much partying and a video that surfaces later in life right before you start that political career, but for Amanda, a Mormon Latter-Day Saint girl, it meant cupcakes, strawberry lemonade and best friends.
Joyce and Aubry came up amazing the decorations.
I found this tiered table at Goodwill for $20. With a little black spray paint, it worked great as the cupcake table.
For a group gift, Amanda hoped to collect a down payment for a king size mattress, so Kelly suggested a money tree. I purchased this branch of a tree at a garage sale for $5.00.
It’s been painted white and has paper leaves attached. Those at the shower who wished to give a cash gift placed their money in an envelope and tied it to the tree.
The shower was so much fun and now it’s on to the big day tomorrow.
We’re so happy for you, Amanda.
Tomorrow you get to marry your best friend.

  4. Laura, I want that cupcake table! How cute! If you ever see something like that again, please get it for me. You are so creative. I would never think to repurpose things the way you do. I enjoyed all the posts about the telephone table. I am so sorry about e-bay. They obviously do not know what they are letting go of. You are one in a million. :0)

  6. Oh my! How I love shopping at Goodwill, Salvation Army, flea markets, and antique stores. I get some really good finds after yard sales are over and people just leave out what they don't want to bring in...for free:-). Sounds like you're having a blast preparing for the wedding. Hope her day is fabulous! Thank you for linking up in the Footloose and Fancy-Free hop. I am now a follower of your's and look forward to reading more. Have a great weekend!

  7. Your hot pink and zebra print is awesome. Really looking elegant. This color combination is excellent. The tree with white paper leaves are really looking awesome. Need to arrange a similar one for my sister’s bridal shower at one of New York wedding venues. Hope it will be great.
