Tina's Bridal Shower
This past weekend was Tina's bridal shower and it was such a fun event! Tina is one of my bestest friends in the whole wide world and I love seeing her get spoiled like this.
They did all desserts at the shower which immediately won me over. Lots of the desserts came from Cinnamon Productions in Rancho Santa Margarita and I can't wait to go there for lunch or dinner.
Amaretto cake in these lucsious layers. I'm a fan of anything almond.
Lemon cake surrounded by a ton of different kinds of brownies. I had the oreo ones.
Where to even start with this? We'll start at the bottom which was a cheesecake with a graham cracker crust, then a layer of custard and topped off with lovely glazed fruit.
I'm still thinking about it.
I can't even remember how many layers this was... or how many times I came by and shaved off a corner piece and then very elegantly ate it with my fingers.
Assorted cookies and biscotti.
Ginormous strawberries with powdered sugar for dipping.
I love tables like this. :)
I love these cupcakes!!
So pretty and colorful, they would be perfet for so many occasions. Like hey, it's Wednesday, let's get one of these cupcakes!
The tables outside had lovely flower arrangements. I do love spider mums.
White roses are always classic and beautiful.
Here we are playing the only game of the day (YAY!) and I have to say this was a lot of fun. Its one of those how well do you know so-and-so games. Our table did really well. Tina's sister won and Stacey and I came close.
What a great idea for a present! This came from Tina's future mother-in-law.
This is what I look like when someone steals my camera. This means, Hey! I'm supposed to be taking pictures of you... not the other way around! This was taken by Teenage Librarian, sneaky thing she is.
Then on to the present opening! I love watching people opening present but I don't like to be in the hot seat. Everyone staring.... everyone staring.... I wouldn't be very good at public speaking.
Lingerie! This wasn't actually what I got her but I made sure my purchase would be a bit racey but not completely XX rated. Nothing edible... but she did get flushed and a bit embarassed so I feel my job was done.
What bride doesn't like jewelry?
These are Tina's cousins and aunts. While Tina was opening presents, her cousin on the left was writing down phrases that she was saying and then put them into a dialogue of what she would say on her wedding night.
Very funny is all I have to say. It could be totally g-rated... or not.
The blushing bride. She had the cutest outfit on... wait, I need to find a picture with her shoes.
Lisa, Celeste, Tina and Cat (Kat?). We're gearing up for round 2 of the sweets.
Here we are with Lexi and her stuffed animals. Oh and on the right is Courtney (Teenage Librarian) who also Tina's sister.
I can't wait for the wedding on June 5th!
