Being engaged is one of the most exciting times of a girl’s life and I have to say that it has been more than amazing thus far. To top it all off are the bridal events prior to the wedding, including bridal showers and bachelorette parties that bring everyone together to celebrate friendship, love, and the beginning of a new life as a Mrs.

My bridal shower was a few weekends ago and I can’t begin to describe how wonderful it was to have all of my closest friends in one place sharing fun stories that ranged from high school to now all while over a delicious brunch. From a flower crown making station to a ‘make your own scent’ perfume bar, my shower was one for the books and a memory that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to my bridal shower. You can leave the gifts on the table. 😉

I couldn’t believe what a wonderful job my friend Leila at Be Inspired PR and Jesi Haack did with the decor of the shower and the adorable signage with silk flowers by Afloral. The Velvet Garden did an incredible job with the flower arrangements that really made the space even more fabulous. The colors, flowers, friends and vibe made this shower more than I could have asked for.

As all of my friends and guests entered the Lombardi House they were quickly encouraged to create their own flower crown to wear for the day. I love flower crowns and it was fun (and funny) to see all of the different types of flower crowns that were made!

The drink station included a delicious array of juices to create the perfect mimosa with champagne courtesy of ONEHOPE wine.

The brunch was exactly what we all needed to fill our stomachs and our bridal spirits, adorned with yogurt and granola parfait, pastries, and quiche by Urban Palate.

As a favor for guests coming they were able to create their own scent with Ka mil yin. It was amazing what fragrances mixed well and what a great idea for a favor or gift!
