50’s Housewives Inspired Bridal Shower

Well, my bridal shower was on Saturday and it was so much fun!! Kandi sent out the most ADORABLE shower invitations a few weeks ago, and much to my delight, she used Anne Taintor as her inspiration not only for the invitation, but the shower itself! (If you don’t know who Anne Taintor is, you need to!!) Anyway, since the theme was 50’s Housewives, many of the girls came in their cutest dresses with matching apron 😉 Kandi had El Gordito catered, and lunch was amazing!

I was absolutely stunned by the work that Kandi, Kelly and Stephanie put into the dessert table.  It was beyond anything I’d ever imagined for my shower!  And if you know me, you know how much I love cupcakes 🙂

Chocolate Fountains!

Okay, I could post 20 more dessert table pictures but I won’t over-do it 🙂

Okay that was the last one 🙂

The favors were these adorable lanterns that Kandi adorned with a picture of me and Brandon, and a really sweet quote.

Kandi sent blank recipe cards with the invitations, so I could  collect some yummy recipes from my friends. We all know I need all the help I can get in the cooking department.

My gorgeous bridesmaids! 🙂

Kandi made little craft bags for each girl and asked them to design a veil for me, I got to choose the best one and the winner got a prize

The finalists…

More games…
