My friends wedding was this weekend! It was beautiful, elegant, fun and very special. I want to show you some of the cool details she added to make the day perfect, but I’ll save that for my next post.
Right now, I want to tell you about the fun “girls only” shower we threw her a couple of days prior to the wedding.
It was on a Thursday night, so we had to make it a little later so people could make it from work/fighting Houston traffic. There were about 15 women total and we enjoyed some of Dean-na’s favorite snack foods including hummus and pita bread, Chili’s chips and salsa, mini fruit pizzas, and of course Chick-Fil-A nuggets! We also had an awesome cake that was brought in all the way from College Station.
On the table we used the DIY cake stands (see this post for the how-to) and just some flowers. I also had pink hydrangeas set around the house. Pretty simple, but I think it worked even with our lack of serving pieces!
After everyone got their fill of snack food, we opened gifts. She received a lot of nice things of course!
I was able to make something that I had been wanting to try for a long time. I feel in love with this when I saw it on Pinterest, but never had a reason to make it until now. The lingerie caddy can be folded up to put in a suitcase and then hung up on a skirt hanger when you get to the hotel.
I found the instructions to be very straightforward, and didn’t have any trouble except with the box pleats. For whatever reason, that was difficult to get the hang of, but after the first few, I had it down!
I also monogrammed the back side of it with her new last name and put some fun things in the pockets! I was able to do this start to finish in about 4 hours.
I think she really liked it and I hope it is something she can actually use for a long time. Not only can you use it for it’s intended purpose, but the pockets are different sizes so you could put jewelry, socks, electronic cords, hair accessories or any other small items you would like to keep together and not lose in the abyss of your suitcase!
