Sometimes when it’s not smoking hot outside you forget to stay hydrated! So as fall fast approaches, I feel the need to take a moment and remind you all to get your 8 glasses of water a day :)

1950’s Housewife Themed Bridal Shower

You know I love me some theme parties, and this shower on Hostess With the Mostess is just so colorful and fun!

Bride to be Kristen described the party as inspired by a combination of “1950’s housewife meets Katy Perry and Dita Von Teese” and held it at a real-life vintage soda fountain. (TIP: try to find a venue that already emphasizes your theme for no-brainer decorations) Enjoy the full post with more special details HERE.

Thumbprint Guestbook

When I worked at weddings, it was a guarantee that at least half of the guests in attendance wouldn’t know what to write in the guestbook. Save them some trouble by doing a unique thumbprint “guestbook” like this one! Not only will you end up with a colorful, custom piece of artwork for your new home together, but you won’t have a forgotten guestbook collecting dust in the closet all year.
