Kathryn’s shower was a true labor of love: Her sister Andrea cut, glued, punched, stamped, and set everything by hand with her mom and 91-year-old grandmother. They even stayed up until 4 a.m. the night before to assemble the flower arrangements. All of their meticulous planning paid off—just take a look at the photos below.
"I most liked the escort card 'books' with the games inside. I just thought that was very different and elegant," said Andrea. Want to replicate the look? Almost all of the paper products for the clock motif were purchased at Paper Source ("basically, they had everything I needed to create a custom look!").
The escort card books were a great way to give the women their table number and have them get started on the games early. They were able to mingle, giggle and work together on the questions. Andrea also had a mini door prize game where she stamped thank-you card envelopes in advance and asked everyone to write down their name and address on an envelope. The winner was randomly selected, but the real winner was her sister Kathryn, who already had all her thank-you cards addressed!
