Oh man! I loved this shower! So pretty and feminine with a ton of seaside flavor. Nikki, my amazing client (a.k.a. the referral queen), and I fell in love with this Mystical Mermaid party featured on Kara's Party Ideas. We used it as an inspiration springboard for her sweet sister in law's bridal shower and were off and running. Take a look at all of the great nautical details. Enjoy!

Ok. I have to take a moment to highlight these darling cheesecake pails. While strolling through the wedding section of the Dollar Tree I found these small white pails (3 for $1) and thought "Those would work for... something." Cut to me with 2 dozen tiny pails and no idea what to do with them. Then like all good ideas, it came to me out of thin air. "No-bake cheesecakes! No! Wait! Upside down no-bake cheese cakes! And I can top them with a graham cracker crust to look like sand!" Hot glue a mini starfish to each one and set them on a bed of brown sugar "sand" and voila! Love it when it turns out how you pictured it in your head.
Toy shovel detail.
Pirouette cookies dressed up as Message in a Bottle.
Layered tablescapes: Linens, overlays, burlap and netting topped with gorgeous arrangements and a sprinkling of shells. Lovely.
Burlap wrapped wine bottles.
We printed up small coordinating notes for guests to fill out with advice and warm thoughts for the bride to be, which were then rolled up and put into these miniature message bottles. A great touch!
