This post is so long overdue...

Early June this year, I had thrown a little Shabby Chic Wedding Shower.  Originally it was to be a "garden party", unfortunately it rained, alot .  So, at last minute, time to move it indoors.
This room is actually my home office, in a mad dash, my desk, end tables, computers, etc., everything was stashed in my bedroom (thank goodness for teenage boys) as well as my dear friend Tiffany.

I had collected several different chairs from Flea Markets and garage sales to create that shabby chic look, most chairs were under $10 each!

The table setting consisted of all mixed matched china plates, and my grandmothers antique silver.
I had used hydrangeas and roses in soft colors that were also the colors of the brides flowers for the wedding.  Of course, a lot of candle light.

The food table was in the dining room for easy traffic flow, buffet style.
The gorgeous wedding dress cookies were each a different style and so delicious, I had them special ordered from one of my oldest friends Dawn, owner of La Petite Cherie here in St. Louis.

I found these darling little chalk board easels at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each to use as markers for the food and drinks.

The punch table.

We moved to the Family Room for gifts.  
The cute little bunnies were remnants from my own personal wedding shower over 16 years ago!
They are a family tradition now, and used for all family wedding showers.

I just love this wedding phrase.  I had rented this chalkboard and china plates as well as a few other items I planned on using in the garden from a local vintage rental company.
(Really great ladies with great ideas and tons of vintage and shabby chic items to rent for your event!
I hope to work with them more in the future!!)

This was just a fun little addition in the front yard... the John Deere tractor was actually
my husbands as a child.  My kids helped by making the sign and drinking the
soda so we could tie the cans to the bumper!  Turned out too cute.

The shower turned out to be a great success.  Even with the rain and last minute changes, success!

The wedding followed shortly and was also a great success.  Another event pulled together with creativity and a short time frame.
