    Music... Think jazzy or love songs. Lace table cloths and dainty foods and lots of chocolate. Perhaps a couple of really pretty hangers for lingerie. http://www.amazon.com/Whitmor-6449-4...Fabric+hangers

    i avoid favors. I tend to toss them in the garbage at the first chance I get. They are usually cheap and knicknacks and I hate clutter. The ladies in my family usually make a donation to a worthy cause and that warm feeling of benevolence lasts longer than a favor. At my weddingWe donated to the American heart Association in memory of my grandfather; my grandmother and mother were incredibly moved by the gesture.

    More info would help. Is it at a house or restaurant. Time of day and # of women attending. Younger or older bride?

    Shower will be at my house. I am surrogate MOB- Bride's Mom is in Fla. Wedding is at a lake, reception in converted barn. Styling is old lace, burlap & vintage tablecloths. Favors could be something like jam in a little mason jar. TY

    Sounds like it is going to be wonderful. Dh and I got married in the back yard under the Walnut Trees. Keep everything simple, yet very nice. It was in Oct. the weather was GREAT. Everyone said they liked how laid back everything was! Wouldn't change a thing!...

    One of my all time favorite favors from a very nice lingerie shower was a beautiful lace edged handkerchief. It was so pretty and I have used it so very many times since then. I keep it for when I am going to dressy affairs and carrying an evening purse or to a funeral where I always need one or more hankies.

    A nice addition to the tea theme might be a mug rug in the bridal colors or just springy florals. Easy-peasy to do with charm squares, the 5 piece type. One charm RS up, a piece of batting, and then 4 contrasting charms, folded in 1/2, criss crossed on top. stitch 1/4" seam around the edge & turn and flip to have seam inside. I made a bunch for a baby shower in January and in less than an hour I had made more than 25, plenty to go around. They were a big hit and something that can be used each day with happy thoughts! Because each one is different, everyone feels special.

    Great idea! I have a huge amount of floral scraps. I never made one of these but I will give it a try. How about a tutorial for us all?

    Scisyb220,
    Are those the correct instructions? Or is the first charm wrong side up? Or am I just confused, LOL?
