Well, I'm not a party girl, but I did (with the help of some great friends) host a lingerie party for one of my friends from college, Kaitlin Lee!
One of my favorite parts of wedding related events is that you get to see and meet people that have meant something to the bride/groom at different stages/chapters of their lives all together in the same place. This shower definitely had a mixture of friends and family that love Kaitlin so much and it was great to see everyone having fun together.
We did a lot of the traditional shower games, opened gifts, and just spent time together...good memories!
As you know, I'm about the details, so here are a few detail photos of the shower...
We made a bunch of the tissue paper flower balls that are so popular right now for pretty much all of our decorations... I loved the ones we used in my milk glass vases that I've been collecting!
I love bridal shower food....finger food is THE best.
Here are some more flower balls covering the ceiling fan in the living room. Love the polka dots! We (when I say "we", I mean me and my friend Jessica Studer) made these using the tutorial that I found here.
Cupcakes with strawberry icing. I'd never iced anything like this, but it was easy and so pretty!
We put out a few jars and note cards for the girls to write notes of advice/encouragement/memories for Kaitlin. The jars were full by the end of the night!
We also played the clothespin game where you can't say certain words or you get your pin taken. I added little paper rosettes using a tutorial that I found here (hers are much cuter than mine!).
Here are more flower balls that we hung around the dining room chandelier. I wish I'd gotten a better shot of this, it looked so cute but I was in a rush taking pictures so a lot of them aren't the best :(.
We got hors d'oeuvres from a local catering company and there were SO good! Everything was gone at the end of the night!
Mini strawberry shortcakes...a last minute idea, but they looked cute!
Here's some of the food, we had more displayed on the coffee table, but I'm sorry to say that I didn't get a good picture of any of it!
The house was full of pretty girls and lots of fun!
Here are most of the LCU girls that were there. Kaitin is in the middle. I am so happy for you, Kaitlin!!!
Good times. I'm all for hosting another shower at my house haha! Have a great Monday!
