For my bridal shower, we had a an elegant backyard tea party in beautiful sunny May. Invites were handmade and sent out by my bridesmaids about two weeks in advance to friends and family.

|Made out of card stock and shape punchers (inside note, flower, and circle) from Stampin' Up.|
Many of my friends who were still in town as well as the women in AJ's life were able to make it, for which I was so grateful. The backyard was meticulously prepared for tea time.
|Turquoise table clothes, white flower centerpieces, doilies, tea cups and plates.|
|Paper tea cups with treats inside|
|We enjoyed delicious sandwiches, salad, pastries, cake, and lemonade.|
|Amazing women in my life|
|The girls played a cake decorating game and I got to choose the winner for the best decorated cake.|
We also played a game where I was supposed to guess how AJ would answer ??'s about our dating memories together, likes and dislikes, etc. Then we would watch a video to find out how AJ answered each question. Whenever I missed a question, I had to fill my mouth up with marshmallows as penalty. By the end of the game, I looked like a chipmunk.
|There were also paper out for the ladies to put down advice for me.|
|At the end of the shower, I got to open presents from everyone. There were so many practical gifts that I'm excited to use, but the awkward lingeries were the ones that made things even more interesting.|
I feel so grateful to have such wonderful ladies in my life who put on such a perfect bridal shower for me. I had so much fun visiting with old friends and celebrating this new stage of life together.
