A few weeks ago I had my first of three bridal showers. This bridal shower meant so much to me because I actually decided to have it in my own house. Ryan and I moved into our house a few months ago, so it was the first opportunity for some of our friends and family to see our new home.
Everything about the shower was absolutely perfect. I was surrounded by my closest friends and family, and I was in the comfort of my own home. (It was great to be able to kick off my heels whenever I felt like it.)
I wanted three things at my shower; peonies, a naked cake, and enough champagne for a small country. We had peony arrangements all over the house. They were so incredibly beautiful, and I sent the extras home with family afterwards.
My naked cake was just as delicious as it was beautiful. The frosting was so incredibly light, and everyone was raving about it for days.
The mimosa bar was a hit. We served orange juice, pineapple juice, cranberry juice, and raspberry lemonade. We set out strawberries, raspberries, and pineapple chunks as garnishes. My personal favorite was raspberry lemonade with champagne.
I was showered with incredible gifts from our registries at Crate & Barrel and Target. Here are some of our favorite items we received.
