A Shower for the Bride

One of my cousins got married this past Monday so we threw her a bridal shower brunch the Saturday just before the wedding so all of our out of town family could be included.
I'm not gonna lie, I had A LOT of fun planning this and putting it all together and I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out.

As the guests arrived, we had a table set up for them to leave Mackenzie some marriage/relationship advice. My favorite one, "lower your expectations"...




For food we had mini parfaits, bacon, 3 types of donut holes,


pineapple, mini quiche, mini caprese bites,


plain and mint oreo truffles and lemon bars.


Water and peach grapefruit to drink.


For the centerpieces I used white hydrangeas and white fresia and lemon wedges.



 For a take home gift I made blueberry pancakes in a jar with a wooden spoon attached that I had spray painted to match the shower colors.


and here she is on her wedding day...


She is beautiful...the wedding was beautiful and I couldn't be more happy for her!

Love you Mackenzie!

I rolled the plastic ware into yellow napkins from Ikea and tied them with striped bakers twine I found on etsy.
The square appetizer plates I used for people to eat on are from Crate and Barrell...they are super cute and inexpensive and come in a great storage box.
