She decided on turquoise and red for her theme. As I may have mentioned earlier, she is ETSY QUEEN! She can navigate the site so well! When I am stuck on an idea, I call upon her magical Internet powers to help me, and it comes right to my inbox! LUVHERMEANIT! She went to a store on Etsy called Green Apple Paperie http://www.etsy.com/shop/greenapplepaperie. It is closed for vacation right now, but let me tell you, she got EVERYTHING you see here from that store. The lady sent her locked PDF files for invitations, party favors....EVERYTHING! So take a look, and draw inspiration!
Kristin made tissue roses and covered a Styrofoam heart with them. She then added the banner. CUTE!
These are little windmills that she put on straws...so cute!
She embellished this decoration with a cute paper doily.
This is a picture of the bride and groom to be. Kristin went to a website called http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/ to create this darling block poster! ADORABLE (I am totally going to try this for my niece's upcoming shower! I will let you know how it turns out!)
Cute banner!!! She printed the letters, cut them out and used a glue gun to attach to the ribbon. I am about to cry!
She hung hand crafted paper hearts in coordinating paper over her table.
Just cute little plastic ware wrapped in coordinating colored napkins in a bucket over a doily adds to the decor.
This is may favorite, she colored her lemonade with blue food coloring, added a little sign and a BIG BOW to her beverage urn. SO CUTE.
I think she did a wonderful job hosting her first shower, and I think she was pretty budget conscience on this. If you are interested in more paper goods from Etsy, please look up Chubby Cheeks on Etsy, http://www.etsy.com/people/Chubbycheeksbysharon?ref=ls_profile. I know Sharon personally, and she makes ADORABLE paper goods to decorate with.

As always, have a wonderful day. Luvyameanit, Nee' Nee'
