If you guessed that it has been a busy few days for me, then you guessed correctly! This past weekend was my bridal shower, and it was a wonderful time with friends and family! I am so very appreciative to everyone that came, helped, and had fun with me and cannot wait to continue the celebration in May.
It was a ‘travel-themed’ shower, which is perfect given our explorations throughout Europe now that we live in Germany.
A stack of mini suitcases, bursting with flowers and topped with an ‘Up’ themed hot air balloon/balloon display.
Favors for our guests were mini apple crumb pies from Magpie…which you can learn much more about here !
I love food, and we had an abundance of it at the shower! Besides those pictured…there were truffled fingerling potatoes with crème fraîche and salmon roe, beef brisket sliders on brioche buns with pear jam and red peppers…the list goes on and I’m hungry all over again!
One of my favorite parts of the shower, was the crepe station set up in the kitchen. Unlimited mini crepes and a variety of fillings, handed to you on site. Button’s Creperie nailed it and were wildly popular with everyone! (Thank you again Lauren!!)
In the event that a few mini crepes weren’t enough for anyone, there was an excess of dessert…including adorably decorated cupcakes, french macarons for days, and an Up-Inspired cookie cake appropriately declaring, ”Let’s Be Adventurers!”
There was the required present opening pomp and circumstance, and thankfully, I have an incredible bridal party to keep me from looking too silly in front of everyone. Something about opening presents in front of a crowd makes for potential awkward in my case…
I was spoiled rotten by everyone and I cannot stop saying how grateful I am…so many beautiful, useful, and wonderful gifts that I cannot wait to use in Jordan and my home one day!
Thankfully, our flower girl provided ample distraction for the “oohers” and “aahers” too!
I couldn’t be happier or luckier surrounded by all these wonderful people (and Moira!) and marrying my best friend. Thank you again to everyone for “showering” me with love, and I cannot wait to share more fun and joy with you in May!
