I attended a bridal shower today.
We played some fun games - I don't care what anyone says,
I LIKE shower games!
We played one more traditional game where we were given a 'wedding ring' on a ribbon to wear & told not to say "Chelsea" (the bride), "Sean" (the groom) or "Wedding".
The penalty being the loss of our 'ring'.
The other games were all a little different.
One was a take-off on BINGO,
only we were given blank bingo cards & told to write in different bridal shower gifts into the squares. Everyone had a free square in the center plus we all knew at least ONE gift she was getting!
Then, when Chelsea opened her gifts,
if it was one we had written down, we could cross it off.
5 in a row made a bingo!
The next one was a kind of Scattergories(c) game.
This time our papers had the letters
C - H - E - L - S - E - A
across the top, then different categories down the side.
We had to come up with (hopefully) unique words,
starting with each letter of her name, to fit those categories. I'm not sure if I can remember them all, but here goes: flowers, movies (romance preferred), Honeymoon destination, item of clothing, gem or jewelry, & item on a menu.
I didn't manage to fill all of the boxes, but I did get the most points & won a lovely set of bath goodies!
For the last game we each got an envelope with
"Who's the Groom" on it.
We all opened them at the same time & whoever had the picture of Sean inside won. The other envelopes had celebrity's faces instead!
So, all of that, just to show you what Sara & I gave to Chelsea!
A while back, I did a post (HERE) talking about the wedding quilt that we are giving to Chelsea & Sean.
For the shower, I used some of the scraps leftover from the quilt & made 2 throw pillows to coordinate with the quilt.
So now they know what the basic colors of the quilt are,
but they still don't know what it looks like.
