Showers of Happiness

This past weekend I had the pleasure of helping with my sis-in-law to-be's bridal shower. (I also helped with her 1st one, but still need to get those pics:) I helped her maid & matron of honor, Brittney & Christina, plan the whole thing. We had such a blast doing it all, especially because we kept most of it secret from Gena!! I was so excited to help and felt so lucky to be able to do it for her. It was held at Christina's mom's beautiful home in the "Hills", and was a Japanese Cherry Blossom theme. We decided to stick with the Asian theme all the way around, and it turned out great!

Here was the gift table, set up with a beautiful cherry blossom centerpiece. It looked so nice centered around the plants and wonderful atmosphere.

We came up with these centerpieces for the tables. Simple, yet dramatic.

For favors, we used Chinese style take-out boxes and filled them with chocolate covered fortune cookies handmade by us:) (Sorry, forgot to take a pic of those..) We also set out chop sticks and edamame with vintage lotus flower bowls that belonged to Christina's late grandmother. They added such a beautiful touch!

Table set up

This was the food table- we had lettuce wraps, egg rolls, teriyaki meatballs, california rolls, Chinese chicken salad, and fruit skewers. The food was perfect- not too heavy, but filling!

The patio was something out of a magazine.. It was one of my favorite parties I've helped plan!

Of course, I had to include the cake- with the bride-to-be!!
Can't wait for the big day... :)
