I cannot believe my bridal shower has already come and gone! It was this past Saturday and my sisters and future SIL really went all out in making it tailored to things I would love. It was held at Exchange Street Bistro (in Malden, MA) in a private room and had under 35 guests, which was a great sized group. They really stuck to a happy hour theme by having appetizer type foods, perfect for sharing, chatting, and drinking! They even incorporated my blog by doing a theme of “eat, sip, and be married.”
The menu included everything from meatball sliders, to chicken satay, to brushchetta, to veggies and dip!
They created a fruity signature cocktail too, served in a punch bowl, with a cute sign.
And for dessert, cupcakes with little chocolate martini glasses on top!
Check out the gifts table – wowza! I was in awe at how generous everybody was for me and Sal to start our life as a married couple on a good note, stocked with lots of goodies to build a home (or in our case apartment, ha).
For the centerpieces, they did large martini glass vases filled with stones and fresh flowers! Gorgeous! And printed out photos of us to put one frame on every table.
Look at this collage my friend made with some of the highlights of the day!
Here is me and the sisters!
And me and the future sister in law…
This gift from my two gal pals is the best gift idea ever. Wine paired up with tags that say special occassions of when to drink them. I feel like this deserves a DIY post soon! And the message “quenching your thirst through all of your firsts” is so darn cute too.
We played a trivia game and a “what’s in your purse” game for prizes and each guest took home a cocktail themed lip gloss!
Feeling so thankful and grateful to have so many amazing women in my life, to shower me as the one month to the wedding countdown is on!
