Tea Party Wedding Shower

Wow, what an eventful and fun weekend this has been!

Yesterday was my beautiful tea party bridal shower.

If you know me, you know that I love tea and drink it all the time. I also love getting dressed up. And tea parties.

So, I asked my mom if I could have a tea party bridal shower--and oh my goodness, did she and the hostesses go above and beyond! I could not have imagined a more gorgeous or perfect bridal shower.

The party started off with a first course of mini chicken salad sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, scones, chocolate covered strawberries and tea. After the first course, we played a game, followed by gifts. We got so many wonderful presents! I was extremely overwhelmed by the generosity of kindness of all these women in my life. After gifts, we indulged in a second course of bite-sized cupcakes, chocolate macaroons, mini cinnamon rolls, Russian tea cookies and more tea.

I'd like to share a few of the photos with you now!

(Note: my friend Amber took several of the pictures--she is an amazing photographer/person and I recommend every check out her Facebook page.)

The beautiful tables!
Yummy!
The beautiful winter centerpieces our friend Vivian made.

My dear friend, Amber (she's the one who took the beautiful photos--you can definitely tell which ones I took--the amateur iPhone pics--and which were the hers)!
Hostess Dorothy and Me
Oh, so many memories with this girl. We've been best friends for ten years now, grew up together, lived together and are now maid-of-honors in each others weddings.
This is the girl who introduced Brandon and me--she's pretty much the best.
Tea time with my girls.
I'm so mad I didn't get a picture with the pretty Erin (far left) and me! I had terrible scrambled egg brain and thought I had.. she is one of the sweetest girls I know!
Oh my gosh, I am so incredibly blessed! Brandon and I received so many beautiful gifts at the shower.
I would like to give a huge thank you to my mom, Aunt Brigette and Dorothy for hosting this wonderful day. It was everything I've ever dreamed of and more! Also, a huge thank you to all of my friends and family who attended--you have no idea how much that means to me and how much I love all of you!

Party, Party, I like to Party
