My Bridal Shower
Rainbow sorbet and pink chardonnay punch … A perfectly sunny room overlooking the pool… Pink balloons and streamers and gorgeous flower arrangements …
I don’t know if bridal shower can get any better than that. My hostess even put together these fun party favors for my guests.
They were filled with my favorite candy (licorice), pretty body lotions that smelled like vacation and lip gloss! These girls are talented!
I stayed up late the night before because I really wanted to make a pink ombre cake (you know like the ones all over Pinterest). I just neeeeeeeeded to have one at my shower.
The cake was perfect! It came out just how I had imagined. I used this recipe with boxed white cake and with some tips from my mom it wasn’t that hard! If you are interested I can do a recipe post on it later.
The French macarons were not as successful (some how this doesn’t surprise me). You can see from the photo there was about 10 macarons. There should have been 50! The first batch had no “feet” and almost all of the second batch (yes it was a late night) cracked .
It was also my fiances bachelor party the night before the shower, so something to keep me busy all night and not worrying was a good thing. (They surprised him and “kidnapped” him from an alfresco lunch we set up. You should have seen his face when they carried him into this big white van! Priceless.)
Ericka also made these strawberry champagne cupcakes that were delicious. Check out the recipe here.
I am so grateful and it really warms my heart to see all the wonderful women that came together to celebrate me and the love of my life and our special day. I have so much and I am so lucky.
Just a little over a week now …. I can’t believe it’s so close <3
