It’s amazing how quickly weekends fly by. It seems like I just got out of work for the weekend and now it’s already Sunday evening! I spent most of the weekend in my hometown, co-hosting a bridal shower and attending a bachelorette party for a BFF of mine.
We rented a township hall in the city where I grew up – good ol’ Flushing. Myself and two other bridesmaids set up in the hall Saturday morning. The mother of the bride-to-be was also instrumental in Saturday morning’s preparations. The wedding colors are key lime and watermelon, so we tried to stick to that theme in our décor. My wedding colors were also pink and green, but slightly different shades! Here was our head table, which seated the bride and four bridesmaids:
Most of our guest tables were covered in lacy white table covers, with color-themed paper products.
And of course I must tell you about the food, because that’s what I do here, right!?
For lunch, we had a variety of croissant sandwiches prepared by the mother of the bride-to-be.
Lovely spread of fruit and the cutest little fruit skewers prepared by Michelle.
I prepared a variety of veggies, including broccoli, radishes, sugar snap peas, green pepper, celery, grape tomatoes, cukes, cauliflower, and carrots, with dip.
I think it was a nice spread of food for a ladies’ lunch. On my plate is the turkey, cranberry, and cream cheese croissant, along with a few bites of everything!
And of course we showered the glowing bride-to-be with gifts! I helped with the gift record keeping while Amanda opened her gifts.
Michelle ordered this cake from our local grocery store, Bueche’s. All my childhood birthday cakes came from here! Pretty cake! It even has “something blue.”
The bride-to-be practiced her cake cutting skills for the big day.
All in all I think the shower went well and a fun time was had by all in celebration of the lovely bride-to-be!
