Showered With LOVE


Last weekend I was the lucky guest of honor at a beautiful bridal shower, hosted by my aunt and cousins. The shower consisted of brunch (including an awesome omelet station) and toasts/poems by my loved ones. There was a “room to room” theme and each table boasted a centerpiece with everything from “his” and “her” aprons for the kitchen to – ahem – condoms for the bedroom. But despite the protective gear it was a classy affair. My aunt and cousins wouldn’t have it any other way.

Hearing my friends and family speak kind words about me and Justin was a real highlight. And taking into account all of the hard work and thoughtfulness of my hostesses was heart-warming. Every “decoration” was a gift for me and my beau. Every element was purposeful and meaningful. Even the parting gifts for attendees were Napa themed wine bottles, filled to the brim with Jelly Belly jellybeans. (My belly has since turned into quite the jelly belly…) And an added bonus? The gifts! The ladies in my life showered me with thoughtful gifts. Everything from decorated wine bottles to toast upcoming life events (like having a baby, no pressure :) to cheese knives we’ve been coveting and gorgeous crystal vases. We’re grateful to have these things, and incredibly appreciate of everyone who contributed to making the day so special, just by being there.

With Gratitude,
A

P.S. My little cousins made a “bouquet” and “veil” from the gift-wrappings. How totally awesome?!
