I had the best time throwing this shower for my best friend from college, Christina (Tina—we starting calling her this freshmen year and she hates it but apparently no one else does because it STUCK in a major way! Sorry, Tina!). Our house has been disarray for the better part of a year so throwing her shower was the motivation I needed to continue decorating and have Nick finish a lot of his projects.
Going back through these pictures makes me wish I had enjoyed this brunch spread more (I definitely indulged in the bubbly. One might say a little too much! J). But oh my gosh, yum! I tried to go fairly simple with my recipes because I hadn’t planned on having a lot of help the morning of the party. Turns out, I ended up having so much help the morning of and we were still running around like chickens with our heads cut off…which is pretty much the standard before my parties J. And, I loved how the mix of pretty florals and green succulents came out! I wish I could redo my wedding (I feel like I say that all the time!).
Anyway, enjoy viewing what feels like hundreds of pics from the party—I’m sorry but they are all so pretty!!!!
Now I’m off to Chicago for more wedding celebrating festivities—wooh!!
