1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Jilted Maid of Honor Requests Your Help! on: January 18, 2007 03:36:48 PM
Thanks everyone!! Just having people respond and share their thoughts is such a help.

rainylakechick -- I think cupcakes is definitely the way to go, too. The fruit dip looks yummy and easy, two things that are quickly becoming priorities. As for food running out, I catered my graduation party a few years ago and half of the food was left over, so I am wondering about the proper amount. "Serves 10-12" seems to have different meanings to different people.

caradee -- The bride had the list of all female invitees pre-prepared for me, but personally I think a couples shower could be a lot of fun. I looove the vintage tea party idea, but I don't think that's the bride's (resisting pun....) thing. As for themes, I am not even sure how they are supposed to be executed. What does one do with such a thing? My mom asked me what the "motif" was, and I said "wedding shower."  Tongue

hawkeyes_girl -- I have had such luck finding favors at Michael's on clearance, but if I can find some bulk chocolates I am totally going to add that to the bunch. So far I've got 30 adorable felt bags that I am going to stitch witch some hearts on to and 30 glittery tea light candles in the the bride's wedding colors -- all for six dollars total.

Smarier -- Those cakes are too adorable. Good luck with them, and everything! Please let us know how it goes...

dogwoodbonsai -- I love the idea of giving away decorations as prizes! Two purposes for the price of one, and less clean up!

matuta -- yes, it surprised the bride and me to see how people were reacting, or not, as the case may be. And you're absolutely right about it being a party to honor the bride -- who wouldn't want to help with that? I am in love with the lasanga idea. The bride has particular needs and I could accommodate everyone with that. Plus, I think it would cost even less than a sandwich tray to make two, and be a little snazzier, imho.

Matuta, those are tons of great ideas. I will be sure to hit up the dollar store. The bride's mom offered to help (I am throwing it at her house since my apartment is tiny), but then she noted that the mother is not supposed to host the shower, so I don't want to cause any unnecessary drama. Technically I am the host and am just borrowing her counterspace. I don't know whether to take her up on it or not since it seems to be an issue...

Anything in bulk definitely appeals to me, and how can you go wrong with chocolate? Thanks!

Thanks! The Christmas lights are a really great idea. My parents have been collecting them for years, so that will be easy to get.

I am planning my first bridal shower for my best friend, and much to my dismay I have just found out that none of the other four maids will even be showing up (though two of them live less than twenty minutes away...) or helping. I don't want the quality to suffer for lack of involvement, but my lack of experience, time, and money are all issues for me. I have been scouring the boards and found some really useful advice, but I am still in need of some help. Namely, does anyone have any DIY favor advice? I am looking to keep it under fifty cents a favor, and thinking of it, I am really not even sure how many favors I am supposed to give to each guest... Is three enough? Also, are themes mandatory? The idea really doesn't appeal to me, and the bride has given me complete creative control, so I could do without one unless it's some sort of mysterious pre-matrimony tradition. And finally, what about cheap decorations? I have a couple of ideas for entertainment and food, but my framework is in dire need of support. Anything anyone might have to add would be seriously appreciated!

Ah! I looove the Cake or Death shirt... I might have to steal that if I can't make a convincing Pope on a Vespa! Good job.

Those are so wonderful! Way to combine themes.

That looks great! The puff paint actually works surprisingly well, I think.

So cute and clever! I might steal the second one, too.
