This past weekend the awesome Gazelle girls threw me a bridal shower! If their phenomenal invitation was any indication, it would be quite the party.
My parents, my grandmother and my aunt all came out from BC just for the shower. They worked so hard to get everything ready, along with my MOH and BM:
I put on my best tea party dress and hat:
Tables were decorated with lace table cloths and old tea and biscuit tins held amazing flower arrangements.
There were some amazing tea time treats laid out for us. There was an assortment of chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad, cucumber and mint and smoked salmon sandwiches. Mr. Gazelle had been up until 2:30 am making an Earl Grey cheesecake. BM-D made a purple velvet cake. My mom had mini carrot cake cupcakes and cranberry scones that we enjoyed with clotted cream and preserves.
We also had plenty of tea to choose from – Earl Grey, spiced chai, peppermint and a rather boozy blueberry tea.Finally at the end of the table there was a cookie bar set up with an assortment of some of my favourite cookies – chocolate chip, homemade Oreos, Pims orange biscuits and shortbread.
Seriously, how cool are those?
We played a few games. Everyone had to draw a picture of how they met me, then I had to guess who it was.MOH-T (my sister-in-law) and I had a good laugh remembering when and how we first met.By the way, how amazeballs is her fascinator? I wish I had a better picture of it!
We also played a trivia game – how well do Mr. Gazelle and I know each other? I kinda failed miserably as I only got 14 questions right out of 30! Although really, Mr. G did not make the answers easy on me…
Just as we were wrapping up Mr. Gazelle walked in with a bouquet of flowers! He was here to help me unwrap presents!Photographic evidence shows that Mr. Gazelle really enjoyed himself.Can you guess where we registered?My awesome grandmother made this wonderful piece of lace for us by hand.I was so overwhelmed and touched by how hard everyone worked to make this shower go off without a hitch. My MOH had a vision and she definitely made it come to life! To say thanks for all of the hard work I had some presents ready for them. I may only have had Christmas wrapping paper in the house.With my grandmother, MOH-T, my niece (and flower girl), mom and aunt.
Tell me about your bridal shower!
