I know a lot of wedding bloggers and magazines are saying that burlap is phasing out of the wedding scene, but I think I have to disagree. Everywhere I look I see DIY burlap wedding ideas, burlap wedding inspiration, and more and more burlap! I predict one reason is the affordability of burlap. Large quantities and second-hand burlap are easy to find, so with a plethora of it around, burlap seems like an obvious choice. Especially when you start to see some of the amazing burlap wedding ideas out there. Burlap is a great canvas so to speak for jazzing up your wedding with other colors, and more. Check out the latest finds!

Spring is sprung! I bought some strawberry plants this past weekend and that got me in the mode to do a little planting in the garden! Spring is the biggest season for bridal showers considering the number of summer weddings, so I thought today’s post could be dedicated to a garden theme for a DIY bridal shower. A garden theme is perfect for a bride who already has a stocked kitchen or wine cabinet. Guests can bring garden goodies, and help the bride plan for the future. For brides with a green thumb, this is a winning DIY bridal shower idea.

Every DIY bridal shower needs homemade lemonade! Try a couple of variations, with fresh strawberries, lavender, or if you are really daring, try a little booze! Fans are also a great idea if the weather is going to be warm. Board found on Project Wedding.
Another adorable fan. I also love how they made simple sandwiches so elegant. Chicken salad, egg salad, and cucumber sandwiches are easy to make yourself. The magnets on the right are the perfect party favor! Ideas from New and Blue.
The DIY bridal shower flowers and food shown here are great! The tin cans for the flowers in the bottom left have a vintage-ish feel to them, but I know they are readily available, because I have the one that says “Oregon” on it in my pantry right now! Croissants also make great bridal shower food treats. Inspirations from Sarah Elizabeth Events.
