Bridal Showers of Yore

Almost one year ago, a very special girl to both Samantha and I, got hitched! With her anniversary just around the corner, I felt it appropriate to trot out the pictures from the super fun shower we hosted at my house last April.

A special chair for the bride!

Floating flower puffs for cheap, impact-ful decor.

My secret source for flowers: Costco. The vase was wrapped in tulle for an extra feminine touch.

Fresh flowers for spring! Also, love the Dwell for Target runner I got just for the occasion. They even used it in this wedding, featured on Style Me Pretty.

Of course, we had to make the bride's favorite recipe: Goat Cheese Tart. It's a delicious concoction of goat cheese, pesto and sun-dried tomato pesto. Just to die for! 

More lovely bridesmaids with the incredible food spread. It was too bad Jolyn didn't mention that she can't eat cheese . . . EVERY single item included some form of the substance, except the cake and some grapes. 

The maid of honor decked out in the winning toilet paper dress.

The beautiful bride! What a great shower dress.

Another classic shower game, but with a technological assist. We had the groom pre-record answers to questions, and had the bride guess what he would say. Hilarity ensued!

And a parting shot of Mr. B in the bridal throne. Thank god he doesn't read this blog.

Fast forward to present day, and now our dear friend is returning the favor by serving as bridesmaid extraordinaire for both of us! Happy Anniversary Laurie!


  1. What a cute shower! That picture of Mr. B. should be featured in a slide show or something...hmmmm.....
