Coming Soon......Retro Bridal Shower Photos!

The retro bridal shower was this past weekend, and it was a wonderful success! The bride had a fun afternoon celebrating with loved ones! Pictures soon to come!

But until then......
Let me share with you a super-cute activity that we did at the recent shower, but can easily be done at a bachelorette party , and would be PERFECT for a lingerie shower.
I stumbled upon this "panty poem" online and printed it out to read aloud at the party , then decorated it with scrapbooking papers and stickers (picture above) for the bride to take home as a keepsake from her party! (below is the "panty poem" , just replace some of the specifics to match the bride to use for your next bridal event!)

Panty Poem:

I have a secret to share
About our little bride
She is obsessed with underwear
And that I cannot hide

So for our little panty queen
I gathered up some twine
And put the panties in a row
To make a panty line.

(bride's name) these undies are to last you
All throughout your life
And (groom's name) will be pleased to say
He has a sexy wife!

So listen up to hear about
Your lifelong panty plan
These underwear, we have no doubt
Will last your whole life span

The first are for your wedding day
Of course they are pure white
We know (groom's name) will shout, "Hooray!"
When he sees you on that night

The next are for your honeymoon
They're sexy and all lace
We hope you'll leave your hotel room
'Cause (honeymoon destination) is such a gorgeous place!

On Valentine's you'll wear this pair
Before you hit the bed
Cuz Cupid's arrow in the air
Shoots tushies that are red

After a year has passed you'll face
Anniversary number one
With these you'll surely have a blast
'Cuz leopard's so much fun!

Then when the time is right for you
And don't be saying, "Maybe"
You'll wear your little pink or blue
In honor of your baby

And when your years of wedding bliss
Become the big 2-5
Don't worry - you'll just slip this on
To keep the sparks alive

When finally you're old and gray
With these you can't go wrong
'Cuz sorry (bride's name) but at that age
You just can't wear a thong

This poem was such a hit! It's just enough to make the bride blush but not offend grandma!
Hope it works well for you too!

Young Einstein Party!

Gabrielle Blair is the writer of , a fabulous blog containing decorating ideas, party plans, and all kinds of other creative finds. She was kind enough to let me share pictures from the wonderful Young Einstein party that she threw for her daughter Maude's birthday.

Look how cute these invitations are!
The decor for this party is simple but has a great effect. Gabrielle hung green balloons upside-down alongside green paper circles with portraits of Albert Einstein.

Hello Albert!
Someone from a company in New York called Science Explorers came to teach the kids fun experiments. They made:
-fake snow
- green slime
-gooey worms
-liquid nitrogen icecream
favor bags!

Look at these adorable favors that she made for the party guests!
Green pens with green ribbon were attached to decoupaged mini clipboards, filled with graph paper.
How very scientific!
The guests snacked on pizza that was delivered halfway through the party, and brain cupcakes!
(how creative and cute!)
Happy birthday Maude!
