DIY Shabby Chic Bridal Shower

Here it is! Take a look into my soon-to-be sister-in-law’s shabby chic bridal shower that we threw for her! My aunt and the bridesmaids teamed up to try to make this the most beautiful, chicest, memorable bridal shower ever! I think we achieved it!

When the guests arrived, they were directed to a name tag table, where they wrote their name and relationship to the lovely couple. We used clothes pins to attach the name tag. IMG_2871

After getting a name tag, the guests were led to the next area, where they filled out advice cards and provided date night suggestions. I thought the date night jar was a very cute idea – the guests wrote down fun date ideas on a popsicle stick and placed it in the decorative jar. When the couple finally gets hitched, they can choose random date night activities from there, keeping it fun and spontaneous! I’m pretty sure I had the worst advice and date night suggestion… what a single girl to do?? haha.

Below is how we decorated the guests tables

We bought all the bird cages and filled them with moss and flowers, which served as the main center piece decoration.

We put together bridal shower favors with ‘Wedding Day Essentials’. Mostly all of the items in the bag were customized – chapstick, lotion, mints, kleenex, mints…

Homemade cake pops/balls – red velvet and vanilla! The vintage piece the cake balls are placed on can also be used as a jewelry rack! IMG_2898IMG_2895

LA Arts District Flea Market

IMG_5159.JPG

I LOVE LOVE LOVE hunting for treasures. Flea markets & farmers markets have quick become my favorite places to visit on the weekends due to their super low-key, earthy, peaceful vibes. I’ve been frequenting the Brentwood Farmers Market forever but just went to the downtown LA Arts District Flea Market for the first time and was so impressed that I couldn’t help but share!

The Arts District Flea Market is as artsy-crazy as the Arts District itself. The market is hosted inside a warehouse in DTLA, and stepping foot inside is like stepping foot into vintage wonderland. If you’re looking for an impossible-to-find antique fridge, typewriter, sewing machine, table, lamp….. ETC! this is your place.

There’s also a whole mess of eclectic art, jewelry, clothing, and home decor! Prices are a little higher than an average flea market, but considering the quality of the gems you find here, I’d say it’s well worth it!

Even if you’re not looking to buy anything, the Arts District Flea Market is a ton of fun to stop by and walk around! There’s music, a super fun crowd, and occasionally there are games to play too! (Check out the vintage arcade basketball set below!). When you’re done at the market, go have dinner at one of the many eateries in the Industrial / Arts Districts of DTLA.

The market is open 11AM – 7PM every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Happy treasure hunting!!
