Full of charm, color, and very do-able decor, our next event is just the thing to get the creative juices flowing. This playful little bridal shower not only has me searching for an excuse to throw a party, it also makes me want to redecorate my dining room. Crafted and designed by City Cradle Design and photographed by Jackie Wonders, it just goes to show that you can totally transform what you love (and what you may already have on hand) into a super chic, fun affair.

From City Cradle Design:

Knotted in love was the name we gave to a recent bridal shower celebrating the bond of love that is leading the couple into marriage. We took cues in designing the shower from knotted yarn and created a homespun afternoon to celebrate a lovely new marriage.

The centerpiece for the party was a chandelier made out of large balls roped in colorful yarn hung together with button filled ribbons from the ceiling. The balls are seen in smaller version throughout the table re-made as yarn flowers. The food table was back dropped by another colorful yarn creation complete with the word LOVE knotted within the layers. the table boasted goodies like chocolate dipped pretzels, cherry pops, scones and the fixings for our panini bar. We served vegetable panini’s for our brunch meal made on a George Foreman Grill and wrapped in parchment paper. For drinks we served mimosas with adorable custom tag cocktail stirs and bottles of custom-tagged champagne.

The table for eating was set up low and each invitee received an bright and cheery old fashioned butter dish on their place as a favor stuffed with a raspberry chocolate surprise! A monkey’s fist knot wrapped in pink yarn lay in the center of the table. On the other side of the room a bookcase was set up with a yarn spelling of the word LOVE, a custom made banner and a special gift for the bride-to-be. A package of white buffet napkins was purchased and each girl in attendance knotted into one napkin, using buttons, jewels and antique spools of yarn- stitching’s were created to share our excitement and love for the brides new home. These unique creations were given to the bride at the end of the day as a special treat to pull out as she entertains as a Mrs. The vintage spools of thread were also used throughout the space and served as a great inspiration for the day. A few of them even held flowers as a vase display.
