Bridal Tea Party

Tis’ the season to be married, fa la la la la la la la la!

Yep, its wedding season my friends and with weddings come Bridal Showers!  Ever since I’ve known my BFF, Melissa she has been “wishin’ and hopin’ and prayin’..” for her “Big Day” and this upcoming weekend all her plannin’ and dreamin’ will come true!  Meli always said that when it came time for her Bridal Shower she wanted a Tea Party theme and boy did she get one!

The proud mother of the bride spent countless hours scouring virtually every Goodwill and antique shop in Miami to collect the tea sets used for the shower, which were later given to guests as favors. We noshed on finger foods such as tea sandwiches, croissants, cheese and pastelitos, but my favorite part was the never-ending spread of sweets consisting of macarons, petit fours, mini tiramisu’s, passion fruit and chocolate mousse cups, cupcakes, brownies and cake (just to name a few).  As you will see in the pics below, the decor was an absolute dream materialized using flowers, vintage hat boxes, lace, a crystal chandelier and Meli’s mother went as far as borrowing a vintage bird cage (together with birds) from a friend to create the most perfectly whimsical setting for Melissa’s Tea Party Bridal Shower.

I wore a floral wrap dress from my favorite maternity website PinkBlush Maternity.  I really cannot say enough about this amazing site! PinkBlush Maternity carries exceptional quality, fashionable maternity clothing, at beyond reasonable prices.  Believe it or not, this gorgeous floral wrap dress was under $50.00! I highly recommend PinkBlush to all my fellow mommies to be!

Martha

Let the Shower Games Begin!

Last weekend’s weather may have been sunny perfection, but mine was filled with showers. Baby and bridal showers that is!

On Friday afternoon I attended an “in-office” baby shower for my gorgeous co-worker Amida who is very fabulously expecting a baby girl. We enjoyed yummy treats and played games like the “Dirty diaper game” which I had never played before, and found disgustingly hilarious! For those of you who don’t know the game here are the rules, and below are a few pics from the baby shower.

On Saturday it was all girly fun and games at my dear friend Amanda’s bridal shower.  Cocktails, a Mexican buffet and a never ending sweets table were just the beginning of this sexy soiree.  We played “Pass the Pickle” which was basically about 20 women standing in a circle playing hot potato using only our knees and a pickle; and my favorite bridal shower game of all: “The toilet-paper-dress game.” Now, I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but TOOOOT! I’m still the undefeated champion.  Check out my winning design, my stylishly sexy friends and what I wore! 

P.S. I just had to snap a pic of my friend Bianca’s fierce minty blue wedge from Shoedazzle!
