I just finished up my table numbers for the Umpteen Millionth time and I decided to make a fun thing to display at work. Whilst looking up Memes I finally discovered the Origin of the “Keep Calm” meme, which has sky rocketed in popularity this year. I know what you’re thinking “What the hell is a Meme?” am I right?
A meme is a cultural unit that is often the beginning of a widespread cultural phenomenon like the “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster/saying/t-shirt. For a better definition see www.KnowYourMeme.com Anyway I was really bored today and decided to capitalize on craftiness and the “Keep Calm” Meme. Behold the calm/panic bridal gauge…
I think of it as a nice token to remind me how crazy wedding planning is, plus it gives me something to do with my left over Ikea Tolsby frames. I also think it can serve as a warning to if I’m in a normal calm mood or panic mood.
Did you make any non-wedding related crafts out of boredom? What were they, please share!
Okay so I finally got my bridal shower pictures, so I figured I’d share them with you. Let’s start off with the important things: the eats. Who doesn’t love Sprinkles cupcakes? Seriously, if you don’t step away from the blog. They’re decorated with little circles that spell out LOVE and a topper that looks like a bridal gown, or anyway it’s supposed to. Don’t knock it- I made it.
We sort of had a wine tasting theme, and by sort of I mean 5 bottles of wine later… Anyway my beautiful co-hosts had glasses made with our names & the wedding date as favors. Very cute, now we have approximately 30 of these in our possession due to an over shipment. We shall never run out of pretty wine glasses! Hooray! We’re thinking of giving them away at the rehearsal dinner, why not we’ll never NEED 30 glasses!
Did I mention 1/2 of everyone there was in the medical profession? This is Mandy she’s studying to be a Naturopathic Physician. Yay Mandy! She got me eco-friendly/sustainable Bamboo serving spoons and a big Bamboo bowl. We tease her, she may or may not be a hippie. Not the Dirty kind, that’s her fiancé!
Here’s me “looking funny for the camera”? I seriously don’t know what the eff I’m doing. But it looks like I’m having a good time doing it! Our very talented, new-mother, and co-host, Stacy! The one who made those rockin’ packets with the questions. Seriously that is her precious 2 month old baby girl. Two. Months. Old. The lady is a craft-diva.
So the spot light was stolen by an adorable 2 month old baby girl. It seems fitting. So why try to upstage her adorableness. I’d rather show you my crazy chipmunk face. Otherwise known as the dreaded “bubblegum game” yes the one where they make fun of you for not knowing questions about your fiancé. BTW I got 4 wrong- the pieces of gum were GIGANTIC!
I hope you enjoyed virtually attending my bridal shower. Are you excited for your bridal shower? Have you already had one? Was there an awesome theme? Cupcakes? Wine? All of the above?
