Bridal Shower Details – DIY Ombre Clothespins, Banners, Oversize Balloons & More

Ombre' ClothespinsI love details. In this last post about Kaleigh’s bridal shower I’m sharing the rest of the details that made the day so special including a tutorial for these adorable DIY pink ombre’ clothespins.

The Bride's Baby Pics (2)

Tied among the wisteria surrounding the gazebo was a little clothesline full of baby pictures of the Bride-to-Be. Each pic was hung from simple wood clothespins with an easy ombre paint treatment.

The end of the clothesline was embellished with handmade fabric strip tassels.

We thought about adding spray glitter but somehow didn’t get around to it. 🙂 But it sure would be a nice finishing touch.

Oversize Balloons

Bridal Shower Party Balloons

Courtney found the oversize pink balloons on Etsy. Supposedly these balloons can be blown up to 36″ in diameter! But Courtney got a bit nervous about popping such a large balloon as she was airing it up and decided better safe than sorry.
