On Saturday afternoon, I co-hosted a shower with these two ladies:
For this bride-to-be:
The lovely Jenny.
Decorations were kept to a minimum, but included rose petals and a small bouquet on the gift table, balloons that read “I Do…Me Too” placed strategically throughout the space, and a couple of these lanterns hanging from the ceiling beam:
The menu was simple and consisted of:
- Crackers and Pretzels with a cheese dip
- Cocktail meatballs
- Fresh fruit with a cream cheese dip
- White cupcakes with a whipped cherry icing
I mean, seriously, how cute are these cupcakes courtesy of my roommate, B (pictured above in the tan sweater)??
We played a couple of classic shower games:
1. How well do you know the bride?
Jenny served as our answer key.
Well, at least until we asked her a tie-breaker question that she didn’t know the answer to (as I recall, something about a favorite restaurant…)!
2. Toilet paper bride / wedding dress
Both teams did a great job working on their dresses.
Although one “bride” was ultimately deemed the winner, even the runner-up team was awarded with chocolate for their efforts!
And of course, no shower is complete without the opening of gifts while a faithful bridesmaid (and in this case, soon-to-be sister-in-law) takes notes.
Overall, the shower was very laid-back, but perfectly suited for all those involved. Congrats to Josh & Jenny!!
