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!
