BFF’s Bridal Shower

September 25, 2011

My best friend is getting married! I am so excited. I met Alison working at Banana Republic in Caesar’s Forum Shops back in 1998. (yikes that was a long time ago)

Carolyn (old boss at Banana Republic), BFF (bride to be, Alison), me

    Some of my favorites memories are watching Sex in the City, Sunday night dinners, moving in and out of boyfriends houses, and of course shopping together. Do you have a BFF like this? Needless to say she is an extension of my family along with her mom and sister, which I also love dearly. My BBF has been there for me through my own wedding, baby, moves, highs, and lows, so getting to celebrate her wedding is an extreme high for me. Bridesmaids and very close family and friends made for a very intimate bridal shower .

    BFF and her Mom

What’s also great about my BFF is she is super stylish, hates: being the center of attention, games at showers (bridal, baby, etc.). So this past weekend helping make her a sophicated shower would be some what easy. For the decorations I bought fabric and me and her Mom made table clothes and costars (I ironed and BFF’s mom sewed). They looked like this

    Filled about 6-10 large and small vases with flowers,(actually my man cut the flowers and arragend the vases) used butterfly’s sticks to hold up the sandwiches I made.

    ....and my favorite part

    BFF’s wedding is at The Parker in Palm Springs (which I have never been to) in 40 something days. So excited my daughter will be a flower-girl. The brides dress is amazing, can’t wait to share.
