Showered with love.

At the end of April my sisters, mom, and best friend Amy threw me the most beautiful bridal shower. They were so thoughtful about every single detail of the day, from the lunch menu to the decorations. It was a wonderful afternoon with many of the most important women in my life!
Each guest came with a favorite memory written down on a Project Life card, which my mom knew I would love to put in my scrapbook. This was one of my details the girls planned! After everyone arrived I read the cards one by one, guested who recorded the memory, and introduced her to the group. It was a great way for everyone to get to know each other. 
Amy found the cutest handmade soaps on Etsy for favors. Each bag was stamped with a bride and groom or a heart, depending on the kind of soap. It was such a great gift for the guests to take home.
Amy and I have been friends for over twenty years. I am so lucky to have her in my life! 
I wore my grandma's locket at my shower. She got it when she was 12 and gave it to my on my thirtieth birthday. 
It was so nice to have my mom, grandma, aunt, and sisters at my shower with me. 
My sisters knew that having just a cake was not enough for a dessert-loving bride, so they creating a dessert bar of some of my favorite treats! My sister-in-law Jamie picked up cinnamon sugar and frosted donuts from A Baker's Wife, whose donuts were voted among the best in Minnesota! Amy brought macarons and my mom made my favorite sugar cookies. It was such a delicious spread!
After lunch we gathered to open gifts. I received so many lovely things, including these Minnesota gifts that will always remind me of home.
My Maple Grove ladies, who stuck with me through every questionable decision I made in elementary school, junior high, and high school. We have been through a lot together! 
I cannot thank these ladies enough for all of the love, support, and memories they have given me over the years. I am so excited to celebrate with them all at my wedding!

  1. A Baker's Wife makes the best donuts! Next time you're in Mpls, try Buster's on 28th (it's next door) - their pretzel bites are made by A Baker's Wife. Your shower looks wonderful! Congrats on the upcoming wedding!
