Throwback Thursday: Red and Turquoise Wedding Shower

In 2011 I hosted a Retro Red and Turquoise Wedding shower for a dear friend of mine

because….well DUH Turquoise makes the world go ’round!

And just goes to show that I’ve always had a little retro side……

The bride and groom’s wedding colors were black and turquoise but I’ve always secretly been in love with red and turquoise as a combination so this was my big chance!

I went to a store on Etsy called Green Apple Paperie http://www.etsy.com/shop/greenapplepaperie.  and got EVERYTHING you see here from that store.  The lady sent me locked PDF files for invitations, party favors….EVERYTHING!  So take a look, and draw inspiration!

I made roses out of crepe paper party streamers and covered a Styrofoam heart with them.  then added the banner.  the tutorial for the crepe paper flowers can be found here: (or google crepe paper roses) http://www.tristinandcompany.com/2011/01/crepe-paper-rose-tree.html

Name badges for the bride and groom! Made from pinwheels of scrapbook paper and I glued pins onto the back of them.

I made a ton of these paper rosettes and hung them from the ceiling with fishing line!

The invitation was printed, glued to a red piece of cardstock which was then glued to an oval shaped doily (dollar store find), folded and sealed with a small red ribbon. These were then inserted into turquoise envelopes and mailed out to the guests!

This is a picture of the bride and groom to be in front of the gift table.  I went to a website called http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/ to create this darling block poster! The pinwheels on the table were the guest’s party favors!
