Bridal Shower

It has taken me a bit, but here finally are photos of the lovely Bridal Shower that my sister and my good friend, Shannon, threw for me back in April. If you couldn't tell from the invites, the theme was an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party! Taking a page from the White Rabbit, it was an "Around-the-Clock" shower, where guests were given different times of day and got a present to use at that time.  For food, there were lovely munchies perfect for an afternoon tea (and almost all very diabetic friendly, as I had just learned a little over a week ago I was diabetic, so I was hugely appreciative of this). Who even knew cucumber sandwiches were so tasty? Shannon and Danyon, apparently! Garlands and posters were strewn about- all made from pages of the complete works of Lewis Carroll. See the circle garland up top? That's an illustration drawn by the author! (In case you couldn't tell, I'm a HUGE Alice in Wonderland fan.  I even played Alice in a production of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass as a kid, and the director was at my shower too!)

Because it is a small town, there's not a ton of places to host such events. Shannon and Danyon transformed the parlor in our church into a tea party. Wish I'd gotten better pictures to really show the decor and other party favors and goodies.

One of most interesting parts of living in the same town you grew up in- is people have known you forever! Things got a little teary when everyone was introducing themselves; so many of these women have known me since I was a child! But we had plenty of laughs. Above you can see Shannon (in pink) and my sister Danyon (yellow top) introducing a shower game involving a Mad Hatter Cap! Thank you to Gwen, my soon-to-be mother-in-law as well as my sister for so many of these photos. And thank you for the lovely day and well-wishes!

  1. seriously, i think your wedding is going to be the cutest thing EVER. i saw that peek of your table decorations and i was already swooning. and i love this bridal shower, what a fun theme!! it must have been so nice getting all those well wishes from ladies that have known you your whole life- i love that about small towns. you wont get any of that in chicago, haha.

    and thank you for your WONDERFUL comment on my video post! haha i loved that you thought my voice was melodic, that was so sweet. and we decided to move to seattle rather than NYC because it's literally half the price. just a studio in brooklyn is like 1300 a month, and im not quiteee in the position to afford that yet, haha! so seattle was the second most exciting option :)

  2. What a wonderful theme for your shower! That doesn't surprise me that you're into Alice in Wonderland-you have fantastic taste about those types of things :) I loved my showers as well, it's so nice to have everyone around you who loves and cares for you and wants you to feel special! The invitations and decor are so perfect and the food definitely looks like something from Mad Hatter's tea table.

    ALSO- I'm finally catching up on blogs after taking a bit of a break and I noticed the Liebster award post! Thanks! I'm totally gonna go do that now :)

    I forgot to mention that I featured you again in my top five favourites last week...rocking that amazing gold satin skirt.

  10. yay glad i caught this one! your friend and sis did such a great job! the theme is perfect: i love the little pocket watch & rabbit and the bunting is great as well. that sounds truly special to have so many people attend that you've known since you were a child! I live in the same town again as I grew up but certainly don't have this wonderful community you seem to have. Glad you had such a wonderful time!
