A few weekends ago I hopped on a plane and made a quick trip back home to Scottsdale.

My best friend Kendall is getting married later this year and of course I had to throw her a glorious bridal shower. The whole theme was based around using chalk. I collected tons of champagne and wine bottles and painted them with chalkboard spray paint - yeah, that exists.

These little painted bottles with each girls name written in chalk was a pretty big hit since it was not only a 'name card' ,but doubled as a vase to take home.

There were even random little pieces like serving trays and boards that I found in thrift shops, etc that were spray painted as well.

I was pretty excited to bust out the toilet paper wedding dress game. Each team had to design a wedding dress for Kendall using only toilet paper and pink tulle. Don't worry, I didn't participate - since I have a degree in Fashion Design I thought that would be a bit unfair.

I'm not exactly sure how I found the time to put on the shower (actually I am, my mom helped make sure it all fell into place perfectly) but it was a super fun creative outlet. And most importantly Ken was super happy. Look how stylish she looks in her lace dress - the perfect pick for her shower.
