Showered with Love

weddingpartycloseup

My daughter Sara is getting married June 27th and her matron-of-honor, maid-of-honor, bridesmaids and friends put on a wonderful shower for her, with so many special touches. I hope this blog post gives you some ideas if you need to host a shower:

1) A “Thank You” card station where guests address envelopes for the bride-to-be, so her thank you notes are a cinch:

Wait, no boys allowed! Chris and a few of his groomsmen (also Sara and Chris) (now get out!)

Ok, they’re gone, time to party!

2) A mimosa bar station at the front door was a huge hit

3) A wine bar in the kitchen for those who partake:

4) Food table with super cute glittered bottles and flowers, mini quiche, mini cupcakes, veggies and dip, cookies, ham and cheese rollups = yum:

Games included a “Who Am I” where each guest wrote a memory of the bride-to-be and she guesses who said the quote. I stumped her because I have the most memories. Stump her and get a gift, if the bride-to-be guesses correctly, she picks from the gift bag. Gifts were lipsticks, cute nail polish, lotions, wonderful girl stuff.

Gifts, yeah!

I loved the gift from Aunt Jana, funny aprons and awesome personalized cutting board

(I got her the cool personalized pillow at Pottery Barn):
