I had my bridal shower a few weeks ago…and it was amazing. I mean, any event focused on food, friends, and getting presents doesn’t suck, but my MOH did such an excellent job and I was overwhelmed by all the details and loveliness:
The whole setup!
A bellini bar (“Choose your fruit and your Brut!”) with Mason jars
Custom napkins with a nod to our love for music
Favor bags (filled with amazing soaps) in a travel-inspired case
An ombre cake (inside AND outside!)
Lemonade and water station—I spent more time near the bellinis.
Poms, baby’s breath, “LOVE” bunting, and a happy bride
By the time everyone arrived and I stopped being so overwhelmed by how amazing everything was, we had a DELICIOUS lunch from one of my favorite restaurants at home—chicken salad sandwiches on house-made focaccia, pasta salad, fruit, and caprese skewers. MOH K even remembered to get some potato chips because she knows how much I love to put chips on my sandwiches (anyone else do this?).
After that, it was game time. We played a Scattergories game—one of my favorites!—and MOH K made a custom version for the occasion:
One of the funniest moments was during the first round, everyone read the first category correctly (“necessary trait for a spouse”) except for some reason, my mom and I BOTH read it as “necessary treat for a spouse.” So we were going around, giving our answers—“energetic,” “easy-going,” “enduring”—and then it’s my turn and I say, proudly, “egg salad!” My MOH, in her desire to please the bride, didn’t miss a beat and awarded me a point. Someone called me out pretty quickly, but knowing how serious MOH K and I are about Scattergories, I really appreciated her giving me some leeway. Letting someone have a free point in Scattergories—that’s real friendship. I kept a lot of the cards because they were so funny to go back and read—not to mention beautifully designed!
