Bridal Shower - Pretty in Pink
Gosh I love weddings.
They make me so happy.
My cousin just got married this past Saturday and my mom and I threw her bridal shower.
( My aunts and grandma's pitched in and helped us cook all day )
I flew up to Utah with Ryan for a week and half and it was so much fun being with all my family and extended family
( there are a lot of us )
The Bridal Shower turned out stunning.
My mom is incredible when it comes to stuff like this so it was fun being her shadow through the whole process. Just trying to learn from her and her skills HA.
I LOVED the clean look of it all.
Each dessert / appetizer had a place. Whether it was a skewer or a shooter glass or a stick, it had a spot.
We made cake balls for the first time ever.
6 hours later we finished but goodness were they beautiful! ( and really yummy )
Nothing was catered. Just spend 2 full days in the kitchen and you can make anything happen HA.
We transformed my mom's dining room into food central.
The shower was from 7 PM to 9 PM so we had mainly desserts with a few appetizers.
( Appetizers included - Fruit, Veggies and dip, and Caprese skewers - MY FAV! )
I like to call it… "Pretty in Pink"
And I will just let the photos do the rest of the talking.

( Hi daddy! ^^ Taking the picture )
She decked out her kitchen in pictures of the bride and groom.
After throwing this I got all into PARTY MODE.
I'm ready to Pinterest away and throw another one!
Considering I have about 70 cousins and 5 siblings still not married I think this is the first of many. :)
