Happy Friday y'all! Today's post was SO much fun to write because it just brought me back to last weekend and how incredible my shower was. As I've mentioned before, I have 3 showers total so this one was number 2 and was pretty much just for the bridesmaids and a few of my local friends and family! Though it was small and more laidback, the amount of effort and thought and creativity that went into making it special was INCREDIBLE!
The shower was held at my house so the girls sent me off to get a manicure while they set up. My manicure finished a little early so my mom blindfolded me and took me upstairs to wait until everything was ready. When I came down the stairs and saw all the adorable decorations I was just blown away! As you can see, there were adorable banners and vases of gorgeous flowers all around the house. My cousin Sofia (last picture bottom left) is only 16 years old and an incredible baker so she made those adorable pink cupcakes and the girls made a super yummy Rosé punch called Rosé Outlook! How adorable is that?! My bridesmaid Nicole and her husband made that super cute white flower frame so we could take cute photos and Instas! Kate (my MOH) made the cutest jeopardy board which was so fun and she made such a cute little bingo game where everyone was able to win fun prizes.
After the games, we opened gifts then made flower crowns which I honestly sucked at but it was still so fun and they all turned out so adorable for pictures! After that mostly everyone left except for 4 of my bridesmaids who spent the night. We just sat around and talked and drank wine and watched the new Amy Schumer stand-up. Perfect way to end the night!
I just truly feel so blessed. As the wedding approaches, it has just made me that much more appreciative to have such amazing women in my life, standing by me during this incredibly special time!
PS-my early birthday gift is that Steven is taking me to see Beauty and the Beast tonight!! I idolized that movie when I was little (and seriously still do)--in fact, it's going to be incorporated into my wedding in a few different ways that I'll share after!! Are any of y'all planning to see it this weekend?!
