Bridal Shower!

So! The weekend was fantastic and my bridal shower went sooo well! My sister is amazing and put so much time and effort into this for me! One of my bridesmaids "abducted" me Saturday morning. We went and had coffee and did a bit of shopping before the party. When I got home I was amazed! My sister had everything in pink, brown and mint green with a French theme. There was french music playing in our dining room and the table was filled with wonderful food. She had the most beautiful bouquets of flowers set in french flower pails. She tied pink and cream ribbon to our chandelier and had made pink and brown damask table clothes herself (she is not the most crafty, so this was a huge surprise)! For the giveaway she pitted basil plants in little pots and had my hubby-to-be and my monogram stuck in on a little stick! Besides the fabulous decorations, I was able to see wonderful people too! I was lucky enough to receive tons of gifts that now look amazing in our home! Here are just some of the things...almost all of our everyday china, 6 sets of flatware, monogram towels, baskets galour (I love them), the Tiffany pitcher I wanted, and much more! I get nervous in large groups so it was a bit daunting at first, but in the end it was all so much fun! I will be sure to post some pictures as soon as my sister send me some. Aside from that I finialized all of my flowers this weekend too! Here they are... for my bridesmaids bouquets I will have them carry a small (half dozen) amount of almost hot pink roses, tied with a mint green ribbon. My bouquet will consist of cream roses and the little flowers (I always forget their name) that look somewhat like tuberose with pearl pins in the center and also wrapped in a mint green ribbon. The boys boutonnieres will match the bridesmaids and the future hubby's will match mine. Our center pieces will be placed on square frames with votives surrounding them and they will consist of hot pink roses, cream roses with pink tips, green hydrangea, and the little flowers with the pearls in the center. Then, around is square vase their will be a mint green bow! I also stopped downtonwn (Chicago)n my way home yesterday. My godfather owns a beyond fabulous shoes store, Battaglia Footwear, and he said he was going to give me a pair of wedding sheos for my second dress!!!! As you know I was going to wear flip flops, in his opinions, that didn't cut it. So I picked out some amazing shoes that he is dying for me right now! I also dropeed off a pair of Manolo's that I got for 86.00!!!! Yep that is correct, $86... He is dying them black for me to wear with a dress I'm bringing on my honeymoon sicne they are white satin as of right now (he is the only person I would trust to do this) If you live in Chicago definetly check out his store is is AMAZING and he has a sale room in back that is to die for! I may have to browse next Satruday when I pick up my shoes..... So, that was my weekend. Hope yours were just as fun, have a wonderful Monday!!! :)
