A Navy and Gray Bridal Shower

My BFF Kelly is getting married in October and she selected me to be her maid of honor! :) Therefore it was my duty to throw a bridal shower which I was super excited to do. I held it at my house and I can't wait to share all the details with you! I already shared the yarn wreath I made for the occasion.

Here's the beautiful, bride-to-be!

Kelly and I have known each other since junior year of high school. We were in band together and we have been inseparable ever since!

Kelly and I have had so much fun over the years. She will go along with any scheme I cook up and she loves a good dance party just as much as I do.

For drinks, my mom made homemade iced tea and we also had pink lemonade and water. I bought the beverage dispensers at Target and I was really happy with them! They work well and they are inexpensive at $20.

Then we had the food setup.

For veggies, we cut up broccoli and bell peppers. We also had baby carrots and cherry tomatoes with peppercorn ranch dip.

We also served pineapple, cantaloupe, honey dew, grapes, watermelon, blueberries and strawberries. Five servings of fruits and veggies a day keeps the doctor away!

I bought chunk cheese on sale and my sister cut it into cubes and we set out crackers with it. I made pasta salad as well.

There were chips and dip.

The cakes turned out perfectly. We ordered 2 of them at Publix (I love Publix cakes!) and I was impressed with their work. I asked for them to base the cakes on the wedding invitation. We also got some cupcakes too - half chocolate and half vanilla.

And I leave you with this: 

My super cool, little sister McKenna created this little cheese man. I was charmed. :)

You guys look very happy in these pictures. We were all set to have my bridal shower at home next week, but my mom had to leave for San Francisco due to some work. I couldn’t have her miss the shower so we decided to all go to her instead. We will be celebrating at San Francisco wedding venues next week.
