if you haven't already, check out our wedding invitations from my post earlier this morning.
part one of my coffee shop themed bridal shower.
i have a lot photos to share from my bridal shower, so i'm dividing this into two posts. the second will post later today.
my bridal shower was a joint effort of some of my bridesmaids (ivy, chrystal, & kathleen), my mom, & a family friend (janet). my bridesmaid, lauren, also flew down the day of just to attend my shower! and my bridesmaid, candace, helped as well. i felt so special & loved by everyone who helped & attended. it was perfect.
i had lovely food at my shower including macarons (these were a surprise - they're expensive, so i really wasn't expecting them at all), banana chocolate chip cupcakes with chocolate marshmallow frosting (from a family friend), tomato basil quiche, a parmesan pancetta quiche, & several other yummy, snacky things.
i'm not gonna lie - the majority of that tower was consumed by me. i've never had the luxury of being able to eat so many paulette macarons in one sitting!
my sister, ivy, made almost all of the décor by hand incorporating coffee bags, newspaper, & kraft paper to stick to the theme.
ivy made these darling little treat bags by hand & drew the little j&l on each one with our wedding date!
ivy placed these little frames all around the room with little tidbits about me & levi in each one. i had a lot of fun finding them & reading them.
the notecards are in the shape of coffee cups!
they also made a slideshow of photos of me & levi over the years that played while guests chatted & ate.
the funniest part of the day was that no one drank any coffee! there was a coffee display with all kinds of pretty coffee cups in the corner that we all forgot about! haha!
