A few months ago I posted about my friend Amanda asking me to be her MOH. Right away I started making lists and pinning items on Amanda's own board on pinterest.  I'm a big planner and was excited to help Amanda plan her big day.   

Then I started organizing monthly bridesmaids nights.  I think the bridesmaids thought I was crazy. Which I admit 6 months before the wedding having a meeting seems a bit much. But I hate waiting until last minute to get things done. So I scheduled 4 monthly meetings December-March and put an agenda with each one.

  Lady lee made tons of these for my 30th birthday and I thought it would a cute way to add some depth to the party.  Last month we created almost 20 of these flower poms.

We also started working on this fabric banner below.  It was quite a set up. One of the bridesmaids cut each piece of fabric while the rest of us tied them on to a large piece of rope.  This project will be finished during this months meeting and I'm looking forward to seeing the final project completed.

This month we will be spray painting all of the glass jars and vases we have been collecting for 2 months.  Each bridesmaid is assigned to bring a can of spray paint. I choose pink, green, gray and ivory paint. 

I think the final outcome will be gorgeous! You can see the entire post here on how to create this project.

What did we do before Internet, blogs & pinterest? 

This month I'm making my friends chicken chili recipe for the first time and the bridesmaids are bringing sides.  It was a really great time last month and am looking forward to it!  Do you have any special DIY projects that you created for a bridal shower or wedding reception?  I would love to hear about them!
Happy Monday!


  1. Bridesmaid meetings are a great idea, especially if the girls don't know one another very well. Even if they do, the meetings still sound like a lot of fun!

  2. I love that fabric banner! I kinda want one for my apartment, haha

    And go you for being organized - last time I was a bridesmaid we *almost* dropped the ball and nearly forgot to throw a bachelorette party!

  3. way to be organized! I love the spray painted bottles and jars!!! I was saving glass jars/bottles until I saw an episode of hoarders; they immediately went to recycling ; ) now I wish I still had them!

  4. I always see sch amazing DIYs on the Internet & my results are always so sad looking, but those big tissue pompoms almost look doable! I hope you post pictures of your results!

  5. You probably win best MOH! That's so amazing that you're actually being organized and making beautiful things. I can't wait to see what else you ladies come up with! I might use the jar idea for my own room.

  6. All of these are so pretty, it's going to look great!!
