|My sis (the beautiful bride-to-be) and Me|
A couple weeks ago I threw a Bridal Shower for my sister at my parent's house. I wanted to surprise her with this, because I knew I wouldn't be attending her bachelorette party and I still wanted to show my support, since I am the Maid of Honor and all! It was just a little shindig with her close friends, which I think she liked. Somehow she didn't have any clue about it until she showed up to the party...I was so proud of my secretive planning skills. Neither one of us look super great, since she didn't know about it and I was rushing to get everything done before the guests arrived...oh well!
Here are some pics I took of the Bridal Shower:
I loved making the tissue paper pom pom flowers. They were actually pretty easy and I love the way they look. The hardest part was figuring out whether to do pointy or rounded edges, so that's why there are both (I prefer the pointy ones). Thanks Pinterest and Martha Stewart!
Since there was only going to be a small group of people, I wanted to keep the food simple. I made little sandwiches (regular sized sandwiches cut into four pieces, with the crusts removed), lemonade punch (with Sprite and strawberries), and cupcakes (made with AMAZING Pillsbury Pink Lemonade cake mix & frosting that I discovered). We also had snap peas, strawberries, grapes, carrots, chips and pink wafer cookies. Oh, and I added a pink sugar rim to the glasses to dress them up!
We played a little game (in which she ended up with a mouth full of marshmallows...but she won't let me post that pic, haha) and she opened her presents. A nice and simple, low-key event.

I think my sister had a good time and I know I loved putting it together for her. I am seriously craving those cupcakes right now!
