becca's shower

a dear friend of mine, becca akbarian, is getting married!!
here we are circa 1999 (and we definitely partied like it was 1999) at the Cantina (del cabo san lucas, if you were around me at. all. in college). it was our thursday night hang-out! like our piercings?!? we were SO in college.

and another:

and now, i'm one of hers! her bridesmaids and i threw a shower for her in late february complete with boudin's soups, salads, & sandwiches, champagne, lingonberry punch, wine, homemade desserts (all to the bride's specifications!), gifts, catching up, and showering with love. it was so fun! we're all looking forward to celebrating becca's marriage to mike in may and it was super fun to start her wedding celebrations at our home :).
blushing bride, neice, and future mil

the table, minus the soup. i made the runner to modernize the tablecloth - see the matching and coordinating pillows on the couch? poms were ordered on etsy (easy to do by myself, but super cheap, so why try?)

i made twine garland with 'congrats', 'love', 'i do', 'kiss', and 'becca & mike bynum' - i also made a ton with circles that hung overhead in the dining room (kinda visable in pic with becca and bouquet). they coordinated with the invitations i found on etsy, too - bridging the gap between those colors and the colors in my home. super easy and fun to make! (special shout-out to les and dev -- les for making me buy the xyron sticker maker and dev for making the gorgeous garland in piper's room with it!)

dessert table complete with compost cookies, carrot cake and red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. table looks plain, but there was A LOT going on decor-wise in this room. the fresh dessert table really lightened things up.

stressing over the bouquet... but, TA-DA! becca is all set to rehearse on may 19th!!!!

jenny, you did such an amazing job! i love the dedication to theme, etc. hey! i think those were the same napkins we picked out for devon's shower, that is.
