“Fun activities for the shower included “Spice of Life” game in which the ladies were put into teams and had to determine the names of all of the spices – sort of a spin to “smell the baby food” like you would play at baby showers.

For individual games, we played “Famous TV Couples” which of course included Chuck & Blaire from Gossip Girl, as well as “How Well Do You Know the Bride” questionnaire.”

    How was the dark purple vase achieved? Did they tie ribbon all around a clear glass vase? Or was it bought ready made? Or some entirely different technique? Any suggestions would be highly appreciated, ladies!
