Holiday Bridal Shower Crafts

I saw this great gallery for handmade holiday crafts at Country Living and thought it would be perfect for bridal showers (the ideas can easily be used for weddings too). The article discusses ideas for creative decorating, entertaining and gifting with tips on how to re-create them yourself. These ideas are also budget-friendly.

Some of my favorite ideas include:
1. white branches in pitchers with handmade ornaments {so simple, yet so elegant for a winter theme}
2. place cards that feature guests smiling faces instead of names {love this idea}
3. snowflake napkins {rubber stamp and acrylic paint, so easy}

some of the above items)
