So my parents are hosting my shower back where I’m from. It’s at a facility where all food/drink is covered. My bridal party is all over, some have children and money is tight for most of them. In lieu of putting too muh pressure on them for help I’m planning on doing a lot myself for the shower as far as centerpieces, favors etc. Anyone have any good idea for inexpensive DIY centerpieces and favors? The shower is going to be in february so I might be able to do a winter theme. Anyone else in the same boat as me?

@aprilwedding31: Hey I’m also a February bride! 😀
I think in your situation you should do things MINIMUM. I’ve been to many showers where it was just at someone’s house with only maybe 14 people with some food, a small cake, and balloons, streamers and some small flower vases on a few surfaces.
Don’t put too much time into it, I’ll go see if I can find some of the pictures I have to give you an idea how to make it classy, simple, and inexpensive…
Best of luck!

I’m helping out with my shower as well.. I can tell you what we’re doing for the centerpieces & favors.. we are actually using centerpieces I will be using for the reception.. so we’re recycling them. They are 10″ glass cylinders with fake flowers submerged in water with a floating candle on top and 4 votive candles around that. And for the favor, we’re going to get caramel corn (in Bulk, from somewhere like Sam’s Club) and put it in a clear “treat” bags and tie it with a ribon, attached to the ribbon is a little tag I made (our of construction paper) that says “He finally popped the question!” Get it, popped like popcorn 🙂 It shouldn’t be too expensive.. and it’ll make a good little snack when everyone is watching me open gifts.
