Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

This was the theme I chose for a good friend's bridal shower on May 20th.  This post is several weeks delayed seeing as how the wedding is in one week, but better late than never I guess.

I wanted to make this day special for the bride-to-be and I had a lot of fun planning and preparing for the party.  I planned a brunch and like I always do,  made way too much food.  I asked all of the guests to bring their favorite "old" recipe for the bride to "borrow" to start her collection.  My gift to her was a personalized recipe binder to hold the recipes from all of her guests.  I received one of these at my shower and every time I look at it, it makes me smile and remember all of the people who attended my bridal shower.  Hopefully it will have the same effect on her.

Everything turned out exactly how I wanted it to and it was a wonderful day!

Who doesn't love a mimosa bar?

Not to toot my own horn, but these were SO GOOD!

  1. I loved the theme and like always, you hosted a beautiful party! I'm glad you enjoy these events and the organization. You are definitely talented at it. I particularly enjoyed the recipe booklet idea. I hope that Jess gets good use out of those.
    Can't wait to see what you do next :)
