The Bridal Shower Post --- Finally!

So, we are now down to less than two months and I can tell you, time is flying by! Not only is summer a blur but I am truly feeling that our wedding is right around the corner. This weekend is the highly anticipated Bachelorette Party!!

More on that later. Maybe. :)

I realized that I never posted about the beautiful bridal shower we had! Hard to believe it was over a month ago already. My favorite meal is brunch and Hodge's created a feast for us. A delicious scrambled egg bar where you add your own toppings, the most perfect bacon imaginable and potatoes so delicious people are still talking about them were just some of the items offered.
You can check out my friend Julie's blog about it for lots of pics. For some reason the tablecloths look purple but they were pink and orange. Anyways, I've stolen a few of my favorites for this post too - thanks Julie!


The favors were a huge hit and I literally had to beg people to share them with me because they were gone in a blink of an eye. 

Lemon cake pops by Sarah and the chocolate covered pretzels and Oreos by Laurie (lalabyeart@hotmail.com) were delicious and so pretty. If you are looking for something sweet that will knock your socks off, they are available to take your order.
Seriously, these were almost too cute to eat!

There's never too many sweet treats at a bridal shower. Prepare to drool...
Aunt Phyllis' famous anise cookies
Aunt Nina's famous cheese cake and what Italian event is complete without cassata cake!
The adorable cupcake wedding dress cake by my mother-in-law to be Beth - soooo cute!
With me being busy being the Bride-to-Be, I had to rely on others to take photos. Here's some of my favorites things about the shower - my awesome family and friends!

You'll notice some key people missing - MARK (duh - huge photography fail!), mother-in-law-to-be Beth, my other two awesome bridesmaids Jen and Tina, and the rest of our families. Here's a tip - when giving your camera to someone to take photos for you, give them specific pictures you want taken!

I'm obsessed with this...
and can't wait to hang my wedding dress on it!!!
I have to give a huge shout out and thanks to everyone who made this day so special. The kindness and generosity were overwhelming. I'll wrap it up before I get choked up again and leave you with some cuteness

  1. Oooooh my grandmother made anise cookies similar to those, usually in the shapes of little S's or exclamation marks. God I miss those!
