After months and months of planning and stress, last Saturday was finally the day of my sister’s bridal shower. It was held at The Fireside Grille in Middleboro, MA and I am so happy to say that everything went off without a hitch.
I have to give credit to one of the other bridesmaids for the idea, but we ended up going with a 20’s flapper theme. Because the restaurant had a minimum requirement for a private room and so many of the groom’s family lives out of state & were unable to make it, the shower ended up being a Jack & Jill, so there were some men in attendance that day, too.
Here is the cake:
I made it myself. KIDDING. I ordered it from Just Desserts in Bridgewater, MA and they did an AMAZING job. I couldn’t have been happier when I walked into the bakery that morning to pick it up and it was sitting on the counter waiting for me.
I spent months gathering up decorations including candy cigarettes, feather boas, and long strands of pearls.
The restaurant was really nice, too. They had it all set up & ready for us when we got there.
My handsome husband helped set everything up & due to a last minute snafu, the gruesome twosome ended up making an appearance at the shower. I have to say that I was really worried because they’re known for being a little wild on occasion, but they were as good as gold that day.
Finally, at noon, the bride & groom arrived.
Once they got there, I had some festive accessories for them and here they are all decked out.
And here I am with my sister, the bride:
After everyone got in & settled, they put out the food, which was buffet style. We had stuffed shells, chicken tenders, salad, a deli platter, cheese & crackers and an assortment of fruits.
After everyone ate, it was time for to open the gifts – and man were there a lot of them!
They ended up with so many great gifts and I certainly hope that after the wedding, they host a nice dinner party with all the good stuff they got.
I’m just glad that the event was a success and I’m even happier that it’s over.
