A Teacher’s Shower

A Teacher's Shower

No shower is an easy feat. Planning one for a colleague has the potential to be stressful, but the opportunity to take lead on the latest shower at my school has taught me a few things that I’d love to share with you for your school or office.

Use the resources you have! The above board is one that’s in my classroom. We don’t use the chalk side anymore, so I typically keep it covered with a chart. This alone saved $50, which is the average cost of a chalkboard easel. Plus, it’s so much prettier than butcher paper.

If your school/office is anything like mine, someone is always getting married or having a baby. Having staples on-hand such as platters, mason jars, mini chalkboards, and other decorative pieces such as confetti make setting up a breeze. Store these items in a closet, so they are within reach. I got many items from Target’s Dollar Spot and by simply asking other creatives. The table clothes were from a planner who no longer needed them. A total win!

This shower had a romantic garden tea party theme. In June, I purchased a few beautiful gorgeous teacup candles from Arden’s Craft Room which is owned by a sweet young girl in California who’s following her passions. The candles smell divine, and are simply adorable. While they are for home, they fit this theme perfectly, and I was glad I had them to bring in.

Erin is our little planner, and it can a bit intimidating creating a spread for someone who does this event thing so well! I’m glad we were able to work as a team to make this a success. That component is vital. Whether for a colleague at work or your BFF at a venue, having a team is essential to creating a beautiful shower with a limited budget and stress. We all used our talents and/or brought great dishes to create a memorable experience for our dear friend, and it paid off greatly!
