It’s official – our wedding festivities have begun! My mom, aunt and cousin/maid of honor threw me a small and intimate bridal shower last weekend. The idea of a tea party-themed wedding shower came up several months ago and it was so fun to see all the planning and ideas finally come to life! I can’t believe the amount of time and effort that went into making every detail so perfect. I am beyond thankful to have people who love and care for me so much to do something so special. It was a day I will cherish forever!
I wanted to share lots of photos with you today because there were so many adorable things to admire! Almost every single thing was handmade, which totally blew me away. The food was all cooked from scratch, including those delicious apricot thumbprint cookies, and my aunt iced those flower cupcakes herself!
The décor was so much more amazing than I ever expected when I first walked in. There were fresh blooms everywhere, matching floral linens, and whimsical details like the floral umbrella hanging from the ceiling and the giant diamond napkin rings. It was the perfect mix of girly and quirky! My mom even made the “I DO” sign hanging on the front door. The china that we used once belonged to my great-grandmother, who passed when I was a teen, which made the day even more special for us.
We played the classic toilet paper wedding dress game, in which teams had to fashion wedding dresses with toilet paper in a matter of minutes and then I had to pick a winner. It totally felt like an episode of Project Runway! The funniest part about the whole thing was that every dress had a bow on it because they were trying to appeal to me! My friends act like they know me or something…
Speaking of bows, how cute is this adorable bow dress that I wore? George bought it for me for Valentine’s Day and I loved being able to wear something from him at my wedding shower. It’s always fun to gush about what great taste he has! Also – my mom made the “Bride to Be” sash because she’s the craftiest ever. I’ll definitely be wearing it again at my next wedding shower and bachelorette party!
Sorry for the lengthy post, but I just had to go on and on about how much I loved everything! My mom, aunt and cousin put on a shower for me that looked like it came straight out of Pinterest. I still can’t believe how incredible everything was! We had the best time, and I am so thankful for all of these beautiful and wonderful ladies I have in my life. Y’all are the best.
If anyone is inspired by something you see in this post, and you want to try it yourself, just let me know! My mom and aunt claim that all of their ideas came from Pinterest so I’d be happy to point you in the way of some tutorials.
