Bridal Shower

My best friend’s daughter is getting married in October. I wanted to give her a bridal shower and she decided to have one in May so we could not only enjoy the outdoors but I could give her a shower before my knee surgery.

Her colors were pink, orange and brown. We decided to decorate everything I could get my hands on in her colors, including the pool.

Tables were covered in white table linens and a brown sheer fabric.

Dear Amanda,
I hope you had a wonderful time. Your mother is one of my dearest friends. You will learn how to be a wonderful wife to your sweet fiance and he is so lucky to have found you. If you need any advice, you always have a place at my table… but your momma is smart, an awesome cook and starting to become a heck of a gardener… she should have you covered.

  3. Cynthia, YOur bridal shower looks wonderful! That dessert table is ADORABLE!!!! I just love the picture of the woman carrying the big lollipop... shades of youth!

    You captured the color scheme so well- even right down to the pink and orange balls in the pool. Great attention to detail.

    The bride must have been thrilled and the guest too!

    Fun, flirty and fabulous!

  6. Thank you so much for throwing me a bridal shower! It was more than I could have ever asked for. Everything was beautiful and the food was delicious! Only a true friend such as you would know my love for cupcakes and make them the center of attention on a table full of other yummy candy! Thanks again and for the sweet note at the bottom. I will be visiting again soon as you recover and for many, many years to come!

    love you so much-
    Amanda
