My husbands sister Carlie is getting married in less than two weeks and I couldn't be happier for her and her fiancé Derek. I'm so excited to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. As one of my bridesmaid duties I took on the task of the Bridal Shower and with the help of all her family and friends, it was pretty easy! I got to use a lot of cool antiques I have been collecting and a lot of ideas I've been collecting in my head as well. The shower was this past weekend and couldn't have been better, with a great turn out, and so many yummy things to eat!
We decided to have a brunch shower Saturday morning and were going for a girly, vintage, breakfast, picnic vibe. Her aunts and some lovely ladies from church all pitched in to make a delicious breakfast spread including fluffy biscuits, cajun breakfast rice, beignets with honey, mini hashbrown casseroles, grapefruit with sugar, a grits and sweet potato bar, sausages, and mini pancakes with blueberries! To drink we had orange juice, hot chocolate, and milk served in real glass milk jars. I have seen a bunch of dairy crates, but with no jars, and when I found all of the jars in the original wood dairy crate, and had to have them! They weren't cheap but I knew I could use them for plenty of parties in the future.
Here is the happy bride-to-be about to open her gifts!
This was so much fun and I can only hope any future showers I plan will be go as smoothly. When you have such wonderful friends who are willing to help, you can easily turn a vision into a reality :)
THE WEDDING IS ALMOST HERE! SO EXCITED!
Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust.
