Kate's shower was held at her parents house and was a tea party theme. Not to mention it was being held outdoors so we were crossing both our fingers and toes it would not rain that day. We were so incredibly blessed with sunshine and the perfect temperatures. Here is the Pinterest board I started to get some ideas for her shower!!
I have to say I had SOOOO much fun helping plan this shower. Kate's family did all the work but it was so much adding lil details. Here are a few snapshots of the shower and how the Pinterest inspiration turned out.
Kate's sister Brenna assembled these adorable favors that included ginger snaps and a tea bag with a K stamped on them.
This is what our idea looked like! Each guest received a note at their table setting that included a small poem and what they needed to do. When they were done filling out the date night idea they brought it to the jar near the gift table. All of the stationary and tags that were used were from Martha Stewart which I bought on Amazon.
This is just one of the many pretty table settings they had. Notice the different shades of pink lanterns they had hanging from the trees in the far right corner.
Amazon and fell in love. We put these on most of the wine bottles and bubbly. It was a great way to make sure that all the wine bottles matched our color scheme.
Obviously after seeing this shower, I knew who to call when it came time to my shower. I wanted something small. I knew it was going to be held on a Saturday in July so I wanted to make sure my Boston friends didn't have to travel to far to get to it. The shower was hosted at Kate's, and not only did my bridesmaids do an amazing job, we also had help from Kate's family.
Here are some snapshots of the day and the amazing food that Kate cooked and my bridesmaids decorated Kate's backyard in Boston!!
My bridesmaids ordered these delicious cookies and had them personalized as favors for all the guests to take when they leave.

For lunch we had 2 different frittatas, salads, and assorted muffins and breads.
