Their wedding ended up having a very similar feel to her shower, I was glad to know I knew her taste so well! I was very proud of the decorations at the shower. This was also the first time I made the Giant Balloons with the tassels. I now make them ALL the TIME! Literally, all the time.
It started with asking Jill which colors she liked out of three pallets I choose. She picked the picture she liked best, and then I started cutting and twisting away. This is what my apartment looked like during the crafting ...
I then got some Rifle Paper Co. letter garlands to make her banners.
Jill designed her own invitations, I was in charge of envelopes (I just sewed together a piece of paper and added some washi tape to the back) and then I mailed them off! The party was on!
We threw Jill's shower at our friend Erika's house. She has the most amazing house! Her living room is gorgeous and has such a great mantle.
I added two giant balloons to either side of the mantle. It really filled the space!
The dining room had another sign and more tassels. I also put a clear balloon in there with confetti inside of it, but we ran out of helium so we could only blow it up half way, and it wasn't very clear :(
The failed clear balloon.
After the party we all went out back and had fun taking pictures with the balloons.

I thought the balloons turned out really well considering they were my first ones!
