The next shower on the calendar was a double bridal shower with a Jane Austen theme. The brides-to-be will soon be sisters-in-law. Their separate wedding colors did not go together, so I just did colors completely different from either of their wedding colors and chose colors that would go more with the Jane Austen theme which was a soft pink and gold.
This is the invitation I created using designer papers from Hobby Lobby, adhesive from Tombow, frame die from Nestibilities, and a free svg cutting silhouette image.
I bought some old frames from Goodwill and spray painted them all gold, so that they would match. I then printed some Jane Austen quotes and put them inside each frame to decorate the tables.
As you walked into the room this was on the table to sign in. I had separate sheets for each of the girls as well as separate address labels for the attendees to fill out.
Decorations on the table...book page base that I created for THIS shower last year, paper doily, battery operated candle that I added lace and gold ribbon that looked like something from days gone by. Frame with Jane Austen quote and jelly jar with silk flowers and pearls hanging out of each jar.
withe the candle on:
I found these napkins that I thought fit the theme at Party City
We served tea party themed food
Blueberry Ricotta Scones and Cranberry Orange Scones with Lemon Curd, Honey, and homemade apple butter
You can't have a tea party without cucumber sandwiches. These are made with the cocktail bread you can find at most grocery stores and topped with chive flavored cream cheese, a cucumber slice, and sprinkled with dill.
fresh homemade whipped cream and strawberries
