One of the most stylish gals I have ever met is getting married in June, so it was not surprising to receive a gorgeous peacock-inspired wedding invitation, which set the tone for what is sure to be a beautiful night in the Virgin Islands. There was also no surprise in discovering that the blues and greens used in her wedding suite provided ample inspiration for this weekend’s bridal shower in her honor.
To keep with the bride’s theme, Lauren (hostess and maid of honor) used the Folk Ornament Printable Party Invitations, and tried something different with the Peacock Feather Rubber Stamp—by using food coloring and powdered sugar she created an elegant and edible glass plate design.
With a little experimentation, she found the perfect ratio of food coloring, powdered sugar and water. Lauren applied her edible paste to the rubber stamp with a paper towel to control coverage, then gently and evenly pressed the stamp onto the plate. The plates were placed on a large table to dry, and did so rather quickly.
Lauren was able to stack the plates for easy buffet service at the shower…but easy certainly did not look cheap, as this beautiful accent was a hit among shower guests. Bride-to-be, Jaime, was tickled by Lauren’s attentive detail and classy integration of her wedding theme.
