My New York Bridal Shower!

My best friend and maid-of-honor, Angie, planned a beautiful bridal shower for me – not only is she currently getting her MBA and working full-time, but she also lives in Chicago and had to coordinate everything with my other bridesmaids from there! Angie arrived on Friday night and we ate chicken meatballs, caught up, and prepared for the fun weekend. On Saturday, I took Angie and Kellye (another friend from Illinois) to my dance class, AKT in Motion where we had an amazing hour and a half sweat session with Anna Kaiser, the amazing woman who started the workout program that’s changed my body! After class, Angie and I parted ways so she could start preparing for the bridal shower.

The bridal shower was at Audrey’s apartment and since our colors are baby pink and navy blue, Angie planned a baby pink bridal shower with lots of cute breakfast foods:


Creme brulee doughnuts from The Doughnut Plant, pink champagne macarons, pink heart sugar cookies, pink vanilla cupcakes, fresh berries, and lots of miniature foods, like these cute pancakes:


We also had freshly prepared mimosas:


And played cute games – in this photo, my friends are trying to guess how old I am in these photos that my mom sent from my childhood (Laura won, but it was surprisingly difficult!) We also played a game “he said, she said”, where everyone had to guess who said the quote – me or Ken. Here we are going through the answers and explaining the background of some of the answers (like, most embarrassing moment!):


Then, onto presents! Everyone was so kind and brought me some really useful gifts – things that we went home and started using right away! Here I’m opening Christine’s gift, a tea pot, two mugs, and two beautifully aromatic teas:


Ken and I now have little tea dates where we’ll drink tea, listen to music, and nibble on fruit slices! Me with my friends:


And then Ken dropped by to hang out with us:


It was such a fun day and so great to spend a full weekend with all of my friends – I’m so grateful to have wonderful friends and Ken and I can’t wait until July!
