Bridal Shower Panic

* *

Spinsters attend (and generally host) a plethora of bridal showers. These little get-togethers can be a fun time to celebrate with the bride and catch up with fellow married and unmarried girlfriends alike or can be a draining, depressing, takeupyourwholeday ordeal. 

We hosted one this weekend and here are a few tips that make or break your shower: 

§  Dont have only desserts. Ladies, especially Spinsters, need sustenance to make it through how darling the brides engagement story is. In fact, at this weekends bash each Spinster was eating at a feverish pace while other married ladies kept their cool. Nothing says panicked anxiety like shoveling shower food down your face.

§  Do have a scrumptious feast that mirrors a country club brunch. Nothing says classy like chicken salad sandwiches. Props Gert. 

§  Dont make it so raunchy everyone feels uber awkward.

§  Do keep it sassy.

§  Dont play 9 back-to-back games of make a toilet paper wedding gown. Spinsters have to do laundry, go to the bank, return ill fitting skinny jeans and finish that blasted Health and Nutrition reflection paper on Saturdays.

§  Do have at least 1 or 2 quick games that break the ice for guests.

§  Dont go home and therapy-eat 8 gallons of Fudge-o-Chip icecream.

§  Do be happy for the bride. You never knowyou might be the one on the bride throne one day.

But in the meantime, were here for you
         ready with our dye cuts to make your shower invitations.

Mentally preparing for summer wedding season,
