As I was cleaning out some photos from my computer the other day, I came across photos from my bridal shower & realized I never re-capped that special day on my blog! I started For the Sake of Cake just a few weeks after my bridal shower, so I’m surprised that it never made it on here!
My shower was held June 5, 2011 at a local banquet facility, Toscani.
Pretty much everything was provided & set-up for us, with the exception of our centerpieces.
My mom & sister actually put the centerpieces together themselves. My mom ordered silver Blume Boxes to serve as vases & had a friend from her work help provide the flowers.
We were able to purchase the decorative ribbon through the Blume Box website & we lucked out being able to find a color & pattern so close to the rest of our wedding “stuff.”
Side note: We loved the Blume Boxes so much, we used them at our wedding, too:
Once the guests arrived at the shower, a variety of food was served buffet-style. Since it’s been so long (almost a year!) I can’t remember everything that was served, but I remember that there was salad, pasta, & a variety of sandwiches. I also remember being one of the first people to eat… naturally. Oh, & of course there was cake, too!
After lunch & a few shower games, it was time to open presents! Chris ended up joining in on the fun as well.
I wish I would have re-capped this sooner because I’m sure there a quite a few details I’m leaving out. It ended up being everything I hoped it would & I had a great time celebrating with my family & friends!
If you’re married, share a memory of YOUR bridal shower! If you’re single, would you like a surprise shower or one you know about in advance? I knew about my shower; I’m not a fan of surprises!
