A Shower for Carrie

The Happy Newlyweds-to-Be

Well, two weeks to the day that we moved into the new house, we have now hosted our first party here. A girlfriend and I hosted a bridal shower for our other girlfriend Carrie, who is getting married this July. In retrospect, I was kinda crazy to try to pull it all together only 2 weeks after moving in, but it was a fun party, and I think she had a great time. For one thing, having an event at your house always makes you get stuff done that needs to be done, non?

“I Do!” — glitter letters leftover from my wedding hanging on my pretty china cabinet from my sweet Grandmother.

The afternoon spread

Favors galore! Little Martha Stewart boxes with pale blue crystal accents. Pink peonies and roses, too.

Mmmmm, ribbon cake from Raspberries ‘n’ Creme. Delicious! Tiffany Blue plates and napkins from Caspari, my go-to for all manner of disposable party fabulousness.

Cake detail with fresh flowers.

Beverage display. A little hard to see here, but big bowls of strawberry punch and iced tea with floating lemons.
