I had the opportunity to host a friend’s wedding shower. She is the fiance of a good friend of our’s, and we are so excited for them to get married and her be here in Seattle all the time. Racking my brain for a good shower theme, (the last shower I attended was pear themed, so cute!) I decided to go with the color blue as a theme. It turned out to be so much fun to plan. I didn’t theme the food blue, because who wants to drink blue punch or blue cupcakes…we’d all have blue teeth. So instead a friend helped me make a bunch of blue tissue pompoms, and we used blue and white for dishes and serving ware, and I couldn’t resist purchasing a blue gift off her registry.
Here are all the tissue pompoms, creating some overhead drama.
And the food. A friend made a pile of the most delicious meringues. I may have eaten six. Both the chocolate coconut and the lemon almond.
And a bright blue gift.
And some of the helpful ladies
And then we were off to Idaho for a fly-by weekend trip for our nephew’s baptism. And to see our many pieces of family that live there. Per usual, I forgot to bring my face-wash. But we have a new ipod so we had music in the car for the first time of making that trip! Nothing like Hwy 26 to Mumford and Sons.
