My last name used to start with an A. Oh how I miss that maiden name. Always at the front of the line. Always at the top of lists. Always #1.
Then I got married. And became Mrs. Paul.
That P is much further down the lists. #16 in fact. But despite dropping far down the alphabet – I’ve embraced it. #APforever
So when it came time to plan my cousin’s bridal shower, I knew I wanted to highlight the letter of her new last name – R. (She dropped down the alphabet from A also..it’s a rough ride my friends.)
Since her shower was a girly and pink Parisian themed event, I knew a floral letter would be perfect. #futureMrsR
I got all of my supplies at Joann’s Fabrics: cardboard letter R, fake flowers, pink paint, foam brush. Plugged in my glue gun and was ready to roll.
Once it was all painted and dry, I started playing with flower placement.
At first, I thought I had finally nailed it. Then I realized I had used too many big flowers and lost the entire shape. It doesn’t even look like an R anymore!
The mix of big and small flowers really works much better. So perfect for my cousin’s bridal shower as decor on a table, tray or even on the door!
