Also on Sunday was the bridal shower for DH’s grandniece, Erin. The invitation for the shower assigned us a “like to”; ours was “Erin and Nick like to eat ice cream.” When I looked at their gift registers, I noticed a lot of red items, so I decided on a red and white color scheme for the card. Imagine my delight to see this on their wedding web site after I had made the card:
Pretty cool, eh? I love using Cherry Cobbler and Riding Hood Red together. And I just had to use a little leftover ribbon from the Holiday Mini last year as a graphic counterpoint to all the swirls and flowers. I was so hoping this ribbon would return in a multitude of colors, but alas.
Our shower gift was four porcelain ice cream bowls in fun colors with polka dots, some ice cream toppings, and a scoop. I’ve ordered them a red ice cream maker for their wedding present, and we’ll bring some additional related items (that didn’t arrive in time for the shower, grrr) when go out for the wedding. I love themes!
