My sister in law is getting married to the love of her life this summer and this past weekend we celebrated…wine style! We decided the theme of her bridal shower should be a rustic wine theme for a few reasons. First, we all love wine. We are a big Italian family and wine is always a key part of any of our celebrations. Secondly, the shower was being held at a local Italian restaurant that had a gorgeous wine cellar which we knew would provide a stunning venue for the shower. Lastly, it seemed to pair nicely with her wedding theme, which is a touch of rustic. When we set out to plan this celebration of love, we knew we wanted to have a beautiful location to display the stunning cake and other desserts, but also some personal touches and themed details. A cake table was the perfect fit. You can easily create this sweet and simple look at home without breaking the bank with our diy ideas, adorable supplies from Oriental Trading Company and our budget friendly tips!
