Bridal Shower Decorations

I am planning a bridal shower for next Saturday and trying to see how the decorations will look.  Things are not finished but wanted to share with you what I have done so far.

Using the Chalkboard Banner Simply Created Kit (retiring item on sale) I was able to make the Miss to Mrs. Banner.  I used 11 of the 15 chalkboard-coated chipboard pieces and still have 32 assorted colors of die-cut pennants, 4 chalkboard pennants , 5 tissue paper pompons, twine and the  chalk left to use for another event.   The lettering was cut with my Big Shot and a retired Alphabet Die using Gold Glimmer Paper, and Wisteria Wonder Card Stock and Gold Glimmer Paper was used for my Hearts.  The brides colors are lilac and gold so that is why I selected those colors.  I strung that onto Linen Thread, but the banner did come with twine if you wanted to use that instead.

I am going to be putting fresh flowers into these jars and decorated them using 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon and Wisteria Wonder 1/2" Seam Binding.  Each jar has a different sentiment tied onto it with Linen Thread.  I decorated 15 jars in all and it was fun looking through all my stamp sets to find appropriate sentiments.  Some sentiments used are Mr. & Mrs., I Seriously Love You, Choose Happiness, Worth the Wait, Never Underestimate the Power of Two, and sentiments from some of my retired sets. 
I really liked how easy it was to create my banner and ordered a few more of the kits before they are sold out.  With the four leftover chalkboard banner pieces I am making a Baby banner for the "Sprinkle" my daughter-in-law and I are having at the end of the month for my daughter, and using some of the colorful banner pieces that I still have, and making 2 of the tissue pompoms for the ends. I will still have pieces left over - what a great value. 

In addition to a variety of stamp sets these are the products I used: 

Note - the Chalkboard Banner Kit is on sale for $9.98 and available while supplies last.
