So I hope you all have enjoyed my posts and tutorials for all of the burlap and sunflower decorations I made for my sister’s bridal shower. We had a lovely afternoon! The weather was perfect, the food was good, and the decorations in my biased opinion were beautiful! I thought I would share with you some of the final touches and how it all came together.
I just loved how these wreaths look. I was originally going to add a bow but really liked the simplicity of this loos without out one. Very country but very pretty. And not to girly per my sister’s request. Next I will be working on decorating some vases with more burlap ribbon and twine. All of the decorations for the shower are really coming together. I can’t wait. Have you ever made a burlap wreath? How did it turn out? What did you use to accent it?

My sister is getting married this August and I am the matron of honor! Aside from the fact that I feel like I age another year every time I hear the word matron, I am so happy and excited for her! I do face a challenge though because my sister is a bit of a tomboy and definitely not into fancy anything. My idea of a perfect bridal shower is beautiful luncheon with dainty sandwiches, champage, and fancy desserts. That would make her revolt. So I asked her what kind of celebration she would like and I suggested we do a country theme with sunflowers, burlap, and blue gingham decorations, simple food, and relaxing in mom’s backyard. I really want to make this event special for her so I am working on some really awesome decorations. First up, I made a burlap banner with the names of the bride and groom.
I think it turned out very nicely. I am also surprised by how easy it was to actually make. When I decided to do it I thought it would be a lot harder. I think you could probably make this burlap banner in under an hour start to finish. You could make these for any celebration.
