Over the weekend my Maid of Honor, Christa and my Bridesmaids threw me a bridal shower, (blog posts mentioned here and here) which was themed “Mimosas and Matrimony”. I was OBSESSED with this concept because as many of you know I love to brunch and enjoy a mimosa or two ha ha.
The event was held at Christa’s place which looks like it’s out of a Home and Gardens magazine – I kid you not, her place is UNREAL! Luckily for me she’s an event planner as well as her roommate, so the flower arrangements and food displays looked so professional!
Everything was decorated so beautifully, and there were TONS of my favorite sweet treats provided for myself and the guests. Displayed was a bowl of sour patch kids (my favorite candy), variety of different donuts which I’m such a sucker for and red velvet cupcakes which are also a favorite of mine. In the middle of the junk food arrangments was an adorable cake that had an “L” on it for my new last name. The CAKE was delicious, probably the BEST I’ve ever tasted, it was “fun fetti” flavor and she bought it from Susie’s Cakes. One of the “stand-out” items was a jar full of Hot Fries and everyone knows how much I LOVE Hot Fries. I thought it was such a funny and sweet touch!
Christa is one of the most talented event planners I have ever met. She is so organized and knows exactly what her customers want! I have no clue how she balances her work schedule, social life as well as being a MOH in two weddings in ONE year. She recently hosted my dear friend Jessica’s shower (blog post seen here) and shortly after planned mine (pictures seen below).
I love that Christa and my bridesmaids were able to make my day so special. They’re truly a GREAT group of ladies and I couldn’t have asked for better friends. I hope you enjoy the pictures and I can’t wait to share my second shower with ya next week (hosted by my fiancé’s family)!
