France Meets the U.S. Wedding Shower Theme DIY

*Items were provided by Oriental Trading.  The opinions are all my own.

Hey everyone! Today we are doing a little outside the box party planning.  

Our niece is getting married, in the fall, to a gentleman from France.  They live in New York and most of the family lives in Illinois, so there are limited opportunities to throw her a shower.  After much discussion, it was decided to throw an informal shower/family party on the Fourth of July, since they were going to be in town.  

It was to be on the actual Fourth of July, which presented some challenges because just making it a Fourth of July celebration doesn’t make it feel like a celebration for the guests of honor.  It just feels like a Fourth of July party.

Giving it some thought, it was decided it would be a France Meets the U.S. theme.  That would honor the heritage of both countries AND as luck would have it, France’s flag is also red, white and blue!  PERFECT!  I’m going to take you through how it all came together.

I had quite a time finding any good French party themed items that weren’t pink.  When I began to panic, I realized Oriental Trading!  They have just the right thing for EVERY occasion!  Watch the video to see how I was able to incorporate my crafts, along with some great decorations from Oriental Trading!!

See how it all came together!

I just wanted to show you that you can combine different themes to make a fun party and personalize it to your guests.  Some of my recent crafts and DIYs came in quite handy!

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember Oriental Trading when you plan your next party!  Happy Crafting and stay safe!
