Throwback Thursday! I am slowly working to switch my old blog on to this shiny new website, in the mean time please enjoy this flashback to a Pin up Lingerie shower I threw for a friend a few years ago! Let me know you thoughts in the comments !
This week I got to host a lingerie shower for my friend Alanna! The theme was pin up and the colours were light blue and red. Blue because it’s one of the wedding colours, and red because most pin up pictures are wearing red!
The dessert table! (my favourite table at any party!) It was a small shower so I just made cookies, mini cupcakes and cake pops…. But I think the coke bottles were my favorite part!
For favours I went and got cute red lipstick and panties from Victoria secret! (they haves one size fits all panties…. Perfect!) I used the panties as decorations throughout the house… They almost looked like bundling when tied together! And I put the lipstick in little gift bags that matched the colours… The gift bags were lined up as the backdrop of the table.
I made mini cupcakes with buttercream frosting! I printed off the invitation on photo paper and used it as a centre piece!
I also made cake pops in the coordinating blue! Super cute! I haven’t made very many cake pops so please excuse the lack of stick straightness!
However, these might be my favourites! They defiantly made the table! I got the straws online at green paper co. I was super impressed with how they stayed in the cokes!
And last but not least…. The lingerie cookies! They were also favours! To make these you simply cut out heart cookies and then cut the tips off! Best boob and bum cookies and no special cutters!
To decorate the table I made tissue paper Pom poms, super cute, super fast and super cheap! I will deft be doing them again! Loved the pop of colour! I also printed off some cute pin up pictures on 4×6 photo paper and then mounted them on card stock. They looked really cute hanging with the poms!
I also used the poms to decorate the chandelier at my front door!
Here are a couple more table shots! I couldn’t resist!
And one more shot of the cola… Love the glass bottles they defiantly added the right element to the table! I got playing around with itch the filters in iPhoto…. Can you tell?
Hope you enjoyed this weeks post! It was a blast putting the table together and the party was a hit!
Happy wedding Alanna, and happy baking everyone!
