Finally, I have time to give an update on the bridal shower from Saturday.
So I'll tell you the story through pictures:
You may be thinking to yourself...hmmm I don't see the cake. But guess what, you do!
|See those lovely flower pot centerpieces??|
Those are the mini-cakes for everyone!
Chocolate & Vanilla layers with vanilla icing & oreos.
Here's a little close-up!
We had about 20 guests, so not quite half of who we invited, but a very comfortable number of amazing women.
We played 2 games: Gift Bingo...I know not too original, but it's a classic.
But we also did a "getting to know you" game. Everyone answered the same set of questions regarding preferences: Coke or Pepsi, middle brownie or edge brownie, beach or mountains, city or county, etc. I think you get the idea. Anyway, the winners got a spatula, a scraper, and this adorable little piggy whisk! :)
(p.s. I might have to go buy myself one of these guys)
Then it was present time. The bride was blessed with a hefty load of amazing home goodies.
Of course there were other flowers (not in the color scheme, because I started running low on time), but still beautiful regardless.
After the shower and after we cleaned up, my brother & sister in law hung around with my nieces, so I had lots of aunt time with my littlest niece!
Even though the shower was a TON of work, I would do it all again in a heartbeat. I wish I had another party to plan. :)
