Co-hosting a bridal shower

October 23, 2012

Filed Under : DIY - MY LIFE

This weekend, I co-hosted a bridal shower for one of my very best friends, Jaymee.  Together with my friends Heather, Kim, and Taylor, we tried to create a really special evening for Jaymee, filled with lots of little details that we knew she’d appreciate and love.  And boy did she love it!  The night was so amazing and we couldn’t have done it without lots of help from our mothers (thanks moms!!) and our friends (shout out to Ann-Marie and Diane!).

Each of the co-hosts had their own tasks leading up to the party:  Heather did major DIY (cutting and sewing all the garland as seen below!) and the desserts; Kim did decor, DIY, and rentals; Taylor did flowers, all of the design elements, and the small details; and I did the food.  I am in such awe of these girls!  They created a truly beautiful setting for the shower and it was so fun planning with them.

I’m really sad because I didn’t get many photos of the food, but after 2 days in the kitchen, I think I might start a catering business.  SO. FUN.  I’ll come back in another post later this week and talk about the food in greater detail.

Huge thanks to Ann-Marie for letting me use a ton of her photos!

    Janelle, the shower looked beautiful. You should start a party planning/catering business. You would be so good at it…you can do my 60th birthday party.
