{Bridal Shower}

Last weekend I was able to travel to Salt Lake and help throw a bridal shower for my dear friend Kristi. Oh my word, is there anything more fun than getting together with a bunch of girlfriends to get ready for a wedding? I think not.

One of my assignments was to handle the invitations. Kristi's colors for her wedding will be coral, gray, white, and cream so we stuck with that color scheme for the shower. Which then helped me decide that I would do the same colors for her invitations.

I found this PERFECT shower invitation online at ETSY. The shop name is Fine & Dandy Paperie and you can visit the shop by clicking HERE! I am kind of obsessed with the subway art thing right now so I fell in love with this style the minute I saw it.

Our friend Megan hosted the shower at her home and she went all out. I wish I would have grabbed more pictures but in between gabbing with friends and getting all the food ready to serve, my hands were busy. Thankfully Kristi grabbed my camera and took some pictures for me!

{Bride To Be Chair}
Here is where our special guest of honor sat during dinner and while she opened up her presents. Loved the designated seating for Kristi!

{Side Table}
This is the little side table next to the "Bride To Be" chair. Complete with her own bowl of yummy popcorn to snack on while she opened presents, fresh flowers, and an oversized glass for her drink!

{Miscellaneous Decor}
These pinwheels were all over the room and were absolutely darling! Megan went above and beyond. I loved them!

Loved the pinwheels tied to the back of the chairs with ribbon!

 {The Food}
Oh the food. One of the joys about being pregnant is stuffing your face and everyone leaving you alone about it because they know you have an excuse. For this shower, we had chicken pesto panini sandwiches, pasta salads, fruit kabobs, and pink lemonade. Plus two different kinds of dessert! I was in heaven.
 I totally didn't grab a picture of our cute mason jars filled with the pink lemonade and the fabulous gray and white striped straws. So just use your imagination and you will understand how stinkin cute the drinks were!

Seriously such a fun night! We had a great time and I am super excited to go back up there for Kristi's amazing wedding in June. Counting down the days!
