A Minted Bridal Shower & $200 Giveaway

Whoa! It sure has been wedding week on the blog the past couple days but that is just how life is when you are the “big sister” and MOH. When I first started planning her shower, I had all these wonderful pinterest ideas in my head but with working full time, blogging part time, taking care of my household, and investing in my community, I did not have all the time in the world to make them all come to be. I turned to Minted (only my favorite paper store ever!!) to see what they had. It was a blast searching through Minted for invitations and party decor! I finally (with much deliberation) settled on the Guapa Party decor and the matching Party invitations!! (they looked like this…adorable to the max!) The best part was that I could buy a party pack and be all done with decorating!!! 
It was such a sweet time gathering together to celebrate the bride to be and the decorations where beautiful. Everyone LOVED and enjoyed all the little details and Rebecca (the Bride) almost cried like ten times.

    I'd go with Nautical Party Decor and Barnyard Crew Party Decor. So many awesome stuff from there, it's hard to decide! Thanks for the giveaway.

  • I'd love the foiled arabesque stationary and of course personalized holiday cards!

  • What a fun giveaway! I'm a big fan of their art prints. I would love to have a few for the walls of our Suite!

  • I'm getting married next fall so I would probably use the money for invitations, but I really loved the banner you had so maybe something fun like that for the entrance. Their photo back drops are really cool too. Basically I have no idea what I would get.
