Today I want to share the bridal shower we held for my SIL last year. It turned out pretty cute for a low budget deal!
I chose DIAMONDS ARE A GIRLS BEST FRIEND for the theme. I asked my mom to do a jewelry box shaped cake, and I shoved a bunch of my old bling inside.

Marilyn Monroe was present of course~
I re-used the candle holders I had made from my wedding, but changed out the ribbons. I found these cute little diamond belt buckles; I think they were three to a package for like $1.50 or so.
I stitched up a quick pink veil and put *diamonds* on the comb.
Each guest had diamond note paper. A copy of THE GOOD WIFE was rolled up and held with a diamond ring.
If you have not seen THE GOOD WIFE before, you must click on it to enlarge! This was one of the games. I didn't tell anyone to read it...but everyone did open it. Later I asked everyone to write down as many things that they could remember from the scroll. It was quite funny since they didn't know there'd be a test!
Another game was a jar full of gems~ they had to guess how many.
We served PINK lemonade, and I brought my PINK handled cake servers. There were cute PINK and black napkins, PINK forks, and PINK place mats. The bride was to carry PINK lillies, so I bought some to give away as prizes. I covered black tables with PINK shiny tulle.
So without further a-do, here is a slideshow. I hope y'all don't get bored, there's about 50 pics!
