Sweet Home bridal shower invitation

I hope you’re in the mood for a sugar hit because I have a whole lot of sweet for you today, with this cute-as-a-button bridal shower. The best part is it’s all totally doable: there’s nothing too challenging in the¬†kitchen, the crafts are dead easy and everything except the invitation is available for you to download free!

Here’s how to pull it off:

Sweet Home recipe card

Do your homework
Send out one of these recipe cards with each invitation, along with instructions to the guest to fill in their favourite recipe. You can then bundle them up and present to the bride to kick-start her recipe collection.

Sweet Home table

Set the scene
Push your table against the wall to create your dessert table and peg up the Love Sweet Love banner using Command strips. I used some gorgeous patterned fabric by Heather Bailey as a tablecloth.

Button flowers

Add some details
Whip up some flowers using buttons and wire. They’ll be great if you want to give the bride some kind of ‘bouquet’ or to add height to your cake table.

Sweet Home food flag

Bake up a storm
Make some mini cupcakes in your favourite flavour. Instead of tearing your hair out trying to achieve impeccably swirled icing or perfect piping, try using buttercream. Apart from having superior yum factor, it is also looks great just casually spread on. Finish it off with some coloured sugar crystals and a cute flag.

 Sweet Home food flag

Pink your platter
Jazz up plain servingware with scrapbooking paper trimmed using pinking shears.

Button biscuits

Take a shortcut
Keep your sanity and embrace the concept of semi-homemade. Buy store-bought biscuits and add your own coloured icing and four dots to mimic a button.

Sweet Home favour labels

Do a favour
Party favours or game prizes¬†needn’t be expensive. Simply package up some sweet treats in a cellophane bag and seal with a free printable sticker.

Here are all the bits and pieces for you to download and print at home:
Recipe cards
Cupcake flags
Favour labels

…and the invitations can be ordered here.

If you like it, don’t go anywhere because I’ll be posting a free matching Valentine’s Day card in a moment.

    • Hi Samia, I like to keep things nice and simple so I didn’t really want Google Follow cluttering up my sidebar, however I’ve just figured out how to add the option to subscribe via email as well as RSS feed. You can find it on the right sidebar under the ‘Connect’ title. Thanks for taking an interest!
