WineStyles in Johnston. WineStyles is a wine boutique and retailer that also has an area for private parties and wine tastings. It was a very fun and casual atmosphere to have the bridal shower.
So once I got the the who, when and where taken care of the fun part of "what" was left to do. The first "what" to take care of was what activities or games would we be doing. Of course one of the activities would be wine tasting. WineStyles offered a wine tasting to the group of six wines, three red and three white. To go along with the wine tasting and "Raise Your Glass" theme, I also had all the girls write words of advice, sayings, quotes, etc. on old wine corks, that were then put in a candle arrangement for the bride to then take home. It was fun, simple, and it was a great way of everyone introducing themselves to the rest of the group at the beginning of the party.

If you look closely on the table, you can see the candle/cork centerpiece
I had a great time hosting the shower and now I'm gearing up for the bachelorette party! I already have most of the details done and this week I hope to get the official invites out for it. I'm having way too much fun being the matron of honor I think!

(I didn't have to worry about decorations because
there were fun "backgrounds" everywhere you turned.)
