Bridal Shower Recap - The Details!

My bridesmaids planned the most perfect shower for me! I love those girls - they planned everything that I love and it was so "me"! 

Here's some pictures that my MOH took before anyone arrived for the party:
The favors were wine glasses - my bridesmaids etched each guests name onto their wine glass so they were personalized and tied pink and yellow ribbons around them...adorable! Mine had my name on one side and then a sparkly "Bride" sticker on the other side. I'm obsessed with it and I used it all weekend! 
A shot of K's living room, all decorated. She switched out all her pictures with our engagement pictures with new pink mats in all the frames. She added a bunch of pink cubes around the room for seating, plus the pink chandelier pillows. 
The bar - tons of pink wine and other delicious cocktails! With it being a Friday evening shower, there was a lot of fun drinks consumed!
The food spread - it was a dessert shower, and there were so many yummy treats. Pink and Chocolate cupcakes, a delish lemon cake and ton of cookies! 
One of my favorite parts of the shower - a candy buffet!!! Filled with pink candy - pink M&M's, candy necklaces, taffy and my personal fave... pink marshmallows!!! 
The funniest part of the shower - the girls took some of our engagement pics and had them turned into an "Andy Warhol" framed print that they hung above K's mantle. Isn't that hilarious and fabulous? I plan on hanging it in my walk in closet...ha!
K's backyard - pink tiki torches and my favorite part of the whole shower - the photo booth!!
Another view of the photo booth - they set up a fun pink damask cloth as the backdrop and then had K's camera on a tripod with a timer to take the pictures. 
Super fun props for the photobooth - hats, boas, jumbo sunglasses! I may have to do a whole other post just with the photobooth pictures because they are hilarious!! 

Stay tuned for the actual shower party pics!!!

What a darling shower! All those little details and hanging the framed pictures of you guys around her place.. How special! Don't even get me started on the pink candy buffet!! We had a candy buffet at our wedding and it was by far one of my fave places to be! And the homemade photo booth? What a fab idea!!
