Lilly Pulitzer Derby Bridal Shower Decor
As you know Bestie is getting MARRIED in July. The other Maids and I threw a wonderful Shower and Bachelorette party the weekend of Cinco De Mayo in her hometown of Fort Lauderdale. After settling on a Lilly Pulitzer & Derby Day theme since it was held on the same day as the Kentucky Derby.
Like all great events it started with the invitation.
I used some goodies from my Lilly Pulitzer Wallpaper Collection, added some grosgrain, and a julep cup silhouette. I also made matching Thank You cards, which turned out super cute! (You can download these from my Lilly Pulitzer Party Printables Post).
For the favors Brides Maid Hannah found great handled Mason Jars to serve as cups and favors as well. I used some awesome white with gold bamboo contact paper I found at TJ Maxx to cut all the Guest’s initials in the font from the Invitation (CAC Pinafore). This worked out great since we all arrived in Fort Lauderdale about 12 hours before the shower the next day, we were able to quickly add the initials to the jars the morning of. I made special ones for the Bride and one that said Mom, which turned out super cute.
Using the ‘scrap area’ from my other cricut shower projects, I cut out lots of little shift dresses, horseshows, and hats, these worked great as scatters on all the surfaces to tie the party areas together.
It also made this awesome photo!
The final piece of décor was the banner, which made for the perfect ‘gift’ spot. I cut the shifts and horseshoes using the cricut, then I added the Bride & Groom’s initials and a heart in the bamboo contact paper. I attached them to the ribbon using baby clothes pins.
