I am going to split my bridal shower recaps because there are so many things I want to remember during these special celebrations leading up to the wedding. They are going to be very detailed recap, they are for me and to preserve each precious memory so I can look back down the road and not miss a single thing.

This past weekend I had my wonderful bridal shower hosted by my long time high school friends. My group of friends since freshman year in high school.
I was really touched with all the details and all the guests that attended. I noticed every.single.detail and at one point was overwhelmed looking at everything. It was so special and I want to remember everything.
I didn’t expect to be surprised when I walked in and seeing the set-up and everyone’s smiling faces. I actually thought I would go to the party, and I would start greeting guests as they come in. Instead, they all greeted me when I arrived.
Can you believe these signs were handmade? They were so pretty (thanks Kat and Chris).
These beautiful billowy fluff of pinkness were also handmade. (thanks Stefanie, you’ve got talent with those scissors).
I am easily entertained and distracted by pretty pink things. Can you tell?
As I walked around the room saying hi and giving hugs to everyone, I had so much I wanted to say to each person but I was loss for words and all that came out were the words “thank you”.
I’m a very sentimental person, each of my friends holds a special place in my heart, and I don’t know if it’s because I am being extra sensitive during these last few months of wedding planning, but I can’t help but remember our high school days and everything that we have gone thru as friends all these years. It is pretty damn special.

Wine tasting was the theme for the bridal shower. We had a plethora of snacks and finger foods.
Mid-way thru the dessert table ambush
Each guests brought a wine bottle to share and it seems like we had as much dessert as the number of wine bottles.
No dessert left behind. We don’t mess around.
After we stuffed our mouths with delicious treats. We then played a wine tasting game.
For party favors, everyone received a glass of wine filled with dark chocolate (great pairings with wine), and their own wine glass charm.
Mine was a seahorse. The seahorse has a special meaning to me because it reminds me of Chris and this inside joke we have about seahorses during our first trip to Monterey when we first started dating.
My friend Amie explained the easy rules “drink and guess the wine”.
We enjoyed the wine with the chocolate pairings. While Amie went around the room and poured the wine, some of us got too excited and poured it for ourselves (I’m looking at you Lizelle!).
The winner! I guess Gerry knows a lot about wines with “hints of leather”, he won a bottle of wine and pretty pink box filled with Hawaiian cookies
Loved, loved, loved everything!
To my friends, thank you for sharing this celebration with me and a million thank you to my friends who put it all together.
