A Bridal Shower

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.

Team #1



Team #2


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!!
