A semi-DIY Bridal Shower

Last month I celebrated my best friend’s impending nuptials with a bridal shower and bachelorette party in our hometown of Phoenix. We had a great time! My mom and I co-hosted the shower and when we started planning, I took to Pinterest to find ideas for decor and game ideas. I looked into buying a few of the ideas but it was expensive so instead I got crafty.

Making our perfect breakfast table

When we moved into our new house there was one element that I was really excited about: our breakfast nook. The only thing missing was the perfect table. Instead of looking for a brand new one we decided to look for an antique table to paint/refurbish. The hunt took us to a lot of antique stores in the area (and there are are a lot), we saw refurbished furniture, furniture that should have stayed in the 70s, and furniture that was just overpriced or too big. But we finally found the perfect table.
