{my bridal shower}

This past weekend, my bridesmaids and mother-in-law threw me the most amazing bridal shower I could have ever asked for.  The only things I requested up front were that the theme be girly (since we arent going very girly with the wedding decor) and that champagne cocktails be present.  I got exactly what I asked for multiplied by about a million.

I cannot take even one ounce of credit for any of this beautiful event; the overall theme and all of the beautiful DIY decorations including the tablescapes, garlands and dessert table was created by my very talented bridesmaid, Kay Lee.  While the various desserts, florals and mimosa bar was done by Heather of Bourbon & Bleu.  My mother in law, Maria, hosted the shower in their wonderful back yard and provided the delicious brunch spread.

Today, I just have a ton of lovely images from the entire shower and next week I will have Heather and Kay guest blogging in more detail about the diy decorations, paper goods, florals and desserts so be sure to check back!

  9. I spotted this fringe backdrop a few months ago on Pinterest and have been drooling over it ever since. I simply adore everything about your bridal shower. I also think your bridesmaids were ahead of the trend on a lot of the decorations created for your shower! I wanted to let you know that I included a mention on your tissue fringe backdrop on my blog today featuring party trends for 2013. Thanks for the fabulous inspiration!
