Jackie + Burak’s Shower

We had a great time celebrating Jackie + Burak on at their shower on Friday night!  Jackie is one of my oldest friends.  We grew up in the same neighborhood and went to preschool together and have been close ever since.  To celebrate her upcoming wedding in Estonia (the country on the Baltic sea), Kara, Erika and I threw her and Burak a shower!

It was fun to create fun ways to display their pictures from around the world.  Burak is from Turkey and the couple lives in France right now, but met in Spain when they were both living there.  They have been all over the world together!

We bought a roll of burlap ribbon and attached black and champagne ribbon to it, before hanging pictures from it.
