My sister’s bridal shower was a great success. The food was AMAZING (thanks to everyone who helped), the decorations were so fun, and the company was a blessing! We had such a good time.

I decided to throw the shower with an Up theme. I love the movie Up, it has such a beautiful love story and it is so colorful and fun and I thought it would make a lovely theme for a bridal shower. I am happy to say it was a great success. I painted an old doll house to replicate the house from the movie. We attached helium balloons to the roof. (My mom thought we were really trying to make it float!)

The menu consisted of bruschetta, chicken satay with spicy peanut Thai sauce, cucumber boats, popcorn, raspberry ricotta mousse, vanilla almond cupcakes, watermelon hearts, and old-fashioned sodas. I’ll post some recipes next! Everything was a huge hit and we all ate, talked, laughed, and then ate some more.

Here are a few select pictures from the shower. All taken by my good friend Rebecca. She is an amazing photographer! There are also additional pictures on my Facebook page. Several people have recommended that I go into the party planning business. I don’t know if that’s really something I want to pursue, but I certainly had fun planning this! If you want a custom made mailbox like the one in the photos, hop on over to my etsy page and shoot me a message! I’d love to make you one! If you want to make your own, here’s a similar mailbox! Here’s a similar dollhouse as well. I merely assembled it and looked at the house in the movie for the paint color ideas.
