Today is my first official day of summer. I can't believe the school year is over but boy am I glad to be able to focus all my energy on the wedding! On Sunday, my future mother in law and future sister in law hosted my "New Jersey" Bridal Shower, for all the wedding guests who were local. My future mother in law is quite the party planner and it was a fabulous shower. I feel so blessed that they organized it for Corey and me.
Me with the lovely shower hostesses!
The shower was held at the social club in the town where Corey's parents' live. The room has a veranda that overlooks the lake, which was so pretty. The weather was perfect. Guests were greeted and offered champagne cocktails and sangria and we all mingled outside. There were many women I had never met who have been friends with Corey's family for years so this was such a great opportunity for me to get to know them a little.
The tables were so pretty.
A close up of the centerpieces. There were shower games at the end where guests were able to win a bottle of Skinnygirl cosmo.
Unfortunately, I snapped the first picture in a hurry so its a little blurry but this is the food set up. We had delicious grilled vegetables, fresh baked rolls, pasta salad, greenbeans with tomatoes and fresh mozarella in a balsamic sauce, and a coronation salad. This salad is famous because the queen of England likes it and it contains grilled chicken, shrimp, avocado, and pineapple atop a bed of greens. It was delicious!
Of course there were cupcakes! And the favors with little pink shoes with chocolates in them.
Some of the ladies and me!
Corey and I are so grateful. The guests were so generous!
All the bows were stapled to a sun hat!
I snapped an OOTD picture before I left home. The dress is Lilly and I snagged it super inexpensively on Rue La La a couple weeks ago!
Thank you so much to Nancy and Kate, the wonderful hostesses! You are amazing!
