Last weekend I flew to Texas for my future sister-in-law’s bridal shower . My mother and her sisters did a spectacular job preparing for the event. My mother hosted a three course luncheon and very lovingly made sure all details were taken care of. The goal was to make sure the bride-to-be was both happy and surprised, and it was a true success.
There were fun games played like the “Spice of Life”, “How well do you know the Groom”, and “What was the Bride Wearing”, the winners enjoyed clever gifts to be used at their own celebrations. Scrumptious desserts and treats were served which included: mini orange wedding cakes, delicious rose shaped lollipops, and chocolate covered cookies. Serving dishes were used as the guest sign-in “book” which will make very nice conversation pieces for my brother (a chef) and his future wife.
Events such as these, are always so ideal to celebrate and catch up with old friends and family and, of course, to meet new ones.
For our new sister-to-be, my sisters and I knew this event would not be complete without presenting her with a bridal trousseau. We selected pieces from Felina Lingerie. Some of the pieces were made from Italian fabrics with special trim details that makes them very feminine, comfortable, and absolutely sexy.
Everything from bras with technological advancements sourced from Japan, to galloon and chantilly laces with a very soft hand, to dream like hues taking her from day to night, made this trousseau very unique. We are also lucky to have my sister, who has a passion for photography, capture all of our family memories; and basing it on the expressions from the bride-to-be, we are convince she was indeed both happy and surprised. Mission accomplished!
My mother was extremely pleased with the sequence of events and she came prepared with her very own entourage to make it all possible (which was of course, the women in our family).
