My bridal shower: decor

I am still smiling ear to ear as I type this just thinking about the wonderful day I had!! On Sunday my darling friends and bridesmaids, Meghan and Brynn, threw me the most lovely shower I could have asked for. It was held at Meghan's parents lovely home that was a perfect space for about 40 women to spend the afternoon. I have so much to post about I've decided to break it up into various posts so I wont leave out a single detail.


First off - the decor!


Guests walked in the door and had wine glasses with their name on it...


And then there was a beverage station with spa water, belinnis and iced-tea to fill their glasses...

The kitchen had these beautiful fabric-rosette lanterns that the girls made, they were a hit with everyone...

And yes all of those lanterns were made with these cute little rosettes, and they made every single one by hand...
Lovely flowers and glassybabys on the kitchen table...
Yummy cake and homemade biscotti were made as favors...
The dining room tables was also decorated with glassybabys and flowers....
More glassybabys, some with candles and some with pretty flowers...
Candle on the buffet island...


Even the napkins had a little special touch to them

Next up - the yummy food!

GORGEOUS! I adore Glassybaby, especially because they're local and the story behind them is just amazing! And more and more I hear people from other parts of the country talking about them, which makes me happy :-)

I spent today putting together wedding invitations and planning showers for one of my besties and it just made me so happy.

Can't wait for the rest of your shower posts!
