Holiday Themed Shower

I am so lucky to have such amazing people in my lives that do so much to make this an amazing experience. For those of you who know me you know that I love holidays. I decorate for them all and always do my best to make it a memorable and special day. So why not have a holiday themed shower!

Here are the amazing decoration. Each table had a different holiday theme. Including the buffet table which was my favorite holiday, Christmas!

St. Patrick’s Day, 4th of July…
Diane also gave a wonderful devotion while sharing the veil from her own wedding. It was a very special moment for me and I am so lucky to have these women in my life.

It was so thoughtful and sweet, and I have such a great time. Each person was given a holiday that would correspond with their gift and recipes that each guest was to bring. When I opened the gift the giver would read their favorite memories of the holiday and share their recipe and note.

The games were also so much fun. I have played the toilet paper dress game before but this one had a special twist. 🙂 Each bride had to represent their holiday as well. Other decorations were included to give it a holiday flair.

Christmas. The winners… but I think because we got the “Bride Vote”.

What would a party be without some cute favors, cookies in holiday shapes!


Thank you again for all the wonderful ladies that came to shower me with love. It was an unforgettable day. DSC01006 DSC01005 DSC01004 DSC00958

I also received this fantastic gift from my sister, Lisa who was unable to make it.  It was holiday items  she had collected throughout the year. 🙂
