This year my brother married his best friend and love of his life. I was thrilled to throw her bridal shower. I hired a close friend to come to my house and offer massages and stuck to a very rustic theme. I printed pictures of the cute couple and displayed them with small clothes pins on old wooden closet doors and passed around a “words of marriage” book for guests to give their expertise on marriage. We had mimosas of course paired with wine and cheese, spinach dip and fruit. I threw in a “what items can we find in our purse” bridal game and handed out gift bags to each guest.

No bride is ready to walk down the aisle without something new, old, borrowed or blue so I had each one of the bridesmaids help with this. She ended up with some amazing out of the box items. I hope she enjoyed the day as much as all of us did. Congrats to the new couple!
