A Sunflower Sunshower!
Made This Summer Backyard Bridal Shower One To Remember!
Sunflowers, lots of sunshine, great food, a hand-made tiki bar, family, friends and one happy couple – that was the setting for my cousin’s bridal shower this weekend. It was lovely!
The food served was cooked my my amazing aunt and made perfectly light & tasty for summer. My uncle acted as bartender serving mimosas and bellinis, behind his new tiki hut. Can you believe the tiki hut was hand-made by my cousin? He had given it to him on Father’s Day, and it really worked great for the shower! Too cool.
I love how the tables were set up, with soft yellow tablecloths and white place settings. The favors were a hit – sunflowers were glued to the tops of these great smelling soaps from Bath & Body Works! What a creative idea! Each table was complete with a carafe of ice-cold lemonade with slices of lemon floating inside.
One of my favorite gifts the couple received was the beautiful quilt that my grandma hand-made herself! She started making them for my cousins and I, for when we get married. I was the first one to get one, when we got married 5 years ago.
We all tease her about how she’ll have to start making baby blankets soon…ha ha! She’s going to have a ton of great grand children once we all start having babies! She keeps saying, “Oh, don’t tell me that…I still have so many more quilts to make!”. You know she loves it though! The question is, “Who’s going to be first?”. You never know!
So there you have it. One amazing shower! Congratulations to the fabulous couple, we can’t wait to see you at your wedding!
Thanks to Denise at Bellis Studios for some of the pictures! She’s way better at photography than I. ;)
