April Showers (Wedding Showers, that is)

Saturday, I co-hosted a personal bridal shower for my best friend Katie. Her finance, Scott, was generous enough to let us crash his apartment and his sister and fellow bridesmaid, Christie, co-hosted the shower with me.

In addition to her new sisters-in-law and the Bukey sisters, Katie had a great turn out of old college friends and gals from her current singles ward. We started out with a delicious bridal shower menu of spinach chicken salad, mixed fruit, cucumber/crab salad goodness, hand-dipped chocolate covered strawberries and pretzels and the ever-classy sparkling juices.

We played a few bridal shower games including one where you use the lyrics of cheesy, romantic songs to come up with the couple's wedding vows. Not only do you have to write them but then your group had to perform them as well.

After a few more games, it was time to open the goodies. I think Scott will be more than pleased with the gifts. :) He even sent a few goodies of his own for Katie including 2 pairs of boxer shorts.

With food eaten, games played and presents opened, we sent each girl home with a goodie of her own...gourmet cupcakes from Mini's in SLC.

Wow Maura, you are the hostess with the mostest! Those cupcakes look amazing--where's this place again? Maybe we'll have to go on a ward field trip there...

OMG Those cupcakes look wonderful...I seriously just considered making some at 10 pm because of that pic.
Who made those?
What a pretty bridal shower!
