Wedding Brain!

So like I said yesterday I have a very dear friend getting married in June and her shower is this Sunday at my house. I have been up-cycling, crafting and creating till my brain feels like mush! I didn't have a theme when I started planning my bride's shower which eventually began to overwhelm me so much I wanted to lock my door and pretend no one was home when the guests arrived!

All I knew is, I wanted to throw a 'vintage' themed shower. I was thinking old type writers, jars, burlap, old irons, sewing machines, wooden spools, lace, roses, tea cups.....and the list went on. What began as an honor to plan this party quickly began to feel like a burden. It felt less like brainstorming and more like a tsunami of ideas in my head. So I stopped everything. I began to think 'Love Birds', I have a severe love of birds.
So I cut out a this cute bird, tied a gem on it and centered the rest of the decorations around it.
It all seemed to come together fairly effortlessly after that. I think the key to not getting too overwhelmed is narrowing down your theme specifically. Yes, you may be doing 'vintage' but what kind of vintage? Here's some examples:
A Vintage Carnival Wedding

A Romantic Barn Themed Wedding!
