I had a blast the other weekend when I flew down to California for a fun-filled weekend in honor of my soon-to-be-sister-in-law. I was so happy to co-host the bridal shower and was in my element planning all the little details. I hand made all of the decor (yes I might be a crazy person) and made all the little favors too! I have a few favorite decor details from the day that I have shared full size below, you can see more images from the day by checking me out on Pintrest.

The succulent favors were the perfect touch and helped to really bring together the table settings. A DIY tutorial to come soon on those. (Yes, I did make all the little wax seal tags for those pots too!)

The tissue paper poms were a great touch of whimsy, and of course perfect for the garden party theme. A great addition to any party are those cool fringey streamers you see hanging in the background. Click here for instructions on how to make the streamers (they are super easy).

I wanted table runners that added to that feeling of whimsy that much of the other decor had. I used different widths and lengths of ribbon in the same color family to achieve the perfect look.

I shared my love for balloons last month when I was in the planning stage of the party. Geronimo style balloons were definitely inspiration and a detail I knew I would have to have. The balloons I made were a big hit and might have been my favorite decor detail. I found great instructions and a source for the actual balloons here.

A true labor of love, I hand cut and assembled all these tissue paper flags. I was thrilled that they turned out to be a fabulous as I had envisioned them to be. (Click here to find out how to make these for yourself.)
