Rustic Bridal Shower

I had so much fun putting little things together for a Rustic Bridal Shower. Amazing at how things so simple can really be cute.

Rustic Naked cake...(well not totally naked) I never knew til recently what Naked cake meant till I started seeing pictures of them everywhere. Funny....6 years ago I made some cakes and had just enough left to make a small cake but not enough icing to cover it and decided to use it to go with our many desserts we had for my motherinlove's 70th birthday party. Little did I know that a few years later these NAKED cakes would be so popular!!!

Here is the one I done 6 years ago!

A small pallet worked great for the cake to sit on don't ya think?

Remember all the tin cans I have been covering ????? How cute is this?

Another pallet for my cute bucket, tins cans, mason jars and homemade bird seed hearts.

Another yard sale basket. My grandson said, "Nana, did you glue all those twigs together? Of course I had to tell him the truth and say NO! LOL! Another little tin can with a little burlap and of course some cuttings off the greenery in the yard.

Yep you guessed it! More tin cans....but the mason jar with lace and the pearls added just the right touch.

Root beer barrels...

Amazing how old broom straw from the yard can be so cute for a rustic look!

Perfect for our cake plates and forks.

Pearls just add to everything!

My little bucket worked out great for the sweet tea!

Thought you might want to look at the heart shaped bird seeds again! LOL! I must say I had fun making these. I actually froze a few to use for the shower and to also test and see how they held up. PERFECT!

Found this mason jar template on line as a freebie and wished I could remember where so I could give credit. Cute little welcome addition.

Also found this mason jar template on line as well. There is some talented folks out there in blog land! Was perfect for a banner....

I decided I wanted wording on my mason jar banner and they turned out adorable.

My favorite.....

Look at the cute hostess gift. English lavender soap tied with raffia and a cute tag.

And the tag says..."From my shower to yours". Love it!!!

A friend of mine from church brought me a pallet. Thank you Johnna Duke! So my man cut it down to suit my needs. Two worked out well for the cake stand and a stand to sit my tea on. The other half of pallet made a sweet wedding gift....

They will use this as part of their Rustic wedding and then it will go on their front porch. Another friend, Dave Brandt done the wording on the pallet and a little stain to top it off made it complete. I love it!

And my niece was happy....

I was happy....

We all happy! 

Hope you have a happy day!

  4. Just a nice shower, Cindy. You outdid yourself. I know your niece was happy. Your table was darling with so many cute touches. I am so impressed with all the work you did on the banner.
    I learned what a naked cake was too. Not sure why I didn't know that! LOL.

    Have a good week.

  5. I love everything and have already pinned one thing so far! I love the combination of the rustic with the pearls and other such feminine things. That just *makes* it for me.

    And... I didn't know they were called naked cakes. My daughter just mentioned them and described them but didn't use the term as far as I can remember. She got one from friends for her birthday.

    Since frosting the whole cake is my least favorite part of baking, I should make more naked cakes.

  6. Everything looked so nice. The mason jar banner was toooooo cute! Great job.

  7. It all looks fabulous! The color combination of the purples and the rustic browns and tans just pops! You did a great job! You're a super aunt! I never heard of a naked cake either! Awesome job Cindy!

  8. OOOH! You did an awesome job - love the cake and the decor - I'll have to share this with my daughter! I am delighted that you shared with Home and Garden Thursday,


So glad you stopped by to visit.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
