DIY 1920’s Bridal Shower Games

Instead of playing games at my friends 1920’s Bridal Shower, we our bride made a memory box.  Personally, I’m not a big “game player” at parties, so I’m always looking for a way to do something without having to actually “do” it, you know? So, instead of a group game, we set up this little craft-station table (below). We asked people to get a heart from one of the baskets and write marriage advice on it. Then, we asked people to grab a little booklet from the other basket and write their favorite memories of the bride in them. When people were done, they put them both in the cute 1920’s heirloom box in the center of the table.

I stopped by Crissy’s house on Sunday night and she had the box sitting out among her things. Together, we pawed through it, her reading the advice and me laughing, and Sean rolling his eyes at us. It’s definitely a sweet little something that she will always be able to hold on to throughout the years. And when she’s mad at her guy, she can open in up and get a little extra advice from her ladies. advice basketmemory basketNow, we’re on to Bachelorette Party planning… There is much fun to be had yet in 2013!


Letter Hunt

The last time Sean and I went home, he got involved in a very serious Letter Hunt with my four-year old niece. For those of you who have never been on a letter hunt before, it’s quite simple. All you do is walk around your home or wherever you are, looking for as many letters as you can. You will be surprised at how quickly your  little chickies can find their letters & how much harder it seems for you you.

Inspired by my niece, Sean and I went out on a Letter Hunt of our own on our last hike. For now the reason behind our letter hike is a bit of a secret, but I wanted to share some of our finds with you all. And may this entry remind you, no matter how old you are, you are never too old to:

Hope your weekend is healthy & fun!
