Bridal Shower Fun

May 28, 2015

As you know, I hosted a Bridal Shower for my friend Emily along with all the other bridesmaids this past weekend. We hosted the party at my Aunt's gorgeous home and I promised a re-cap, so here goes!

Prep ::
Friday was spent running last minute errands and setting up. As we all know, Trader Joe's is the go-to place for party florals on a budget. My car looked like this (and smelled sooo good).

We turned the kitchen into a floral shop and my cousin and I got right to work making arrangements.

Then we spent time putting all the decor and buffet props in place. Of course we had to sample the cocktails we were serving the next day too. Ya know, to make sure we had it just right.

Party ::
We woke up bright and early (with the help of two Starbucks runs) and started to get all of the last minute details in place.


The bar (partially set up)- We served Spiked Arnold Palmers, the Bride's Favorite Brew (Mich Ultra) and Sparkling Lemonade.

Our adorable bartender

We had a BBQ Bar on the menu 
I guess I didn't save a picture of the giant food buffet, only the meat table.

There's your re-cap, overflowing with pictures and details, we had a great time and lucked out with gorgeous weather. Let the wedding festivities continue! Next up, Bachelorette Party in Nashville!


  1. Very helpful information on bridal shower party and hope you enjoyed very much. Few months ago, I arranged my sister-in-law’s wedding ceremony at one of exquisite Chicago wedding venues. Invited all our family and friends. We all had great time.

  2. Hosting bridal shower is great fun. Have recently hosted my best friend’s bridal shower. Have prepared everything according to her likeness. Went with floral décor for the venue. The flowers were elegant and amazing. Purchased them from Flower Delivery Service nearby me.


Would love to hear from you!
