Les Mis to Les Mrs

I feel so honored and blessed to be a bridesmaid for my dear friend, Jen. I have known her for almost 4 years now, but it feels like I have known her forever! We have so much in common but yet we are total opposites. I think that is why we get along so well! Planning for her bridal shower was so much fun and all the bridesmaids knew exactly what theme to do. Our literature loving bride to be loves reading on her free time, so why not do a book themed shower?

Guests were welcomed by a DIY floral wall photobooth station with props inspired by The Great Gatsby. We asked guests to leave the bride to be some advice, but not just any advice. Sarah Ku, from Arts by Sarah Ku, asked the guests to write a one liner advice, just like how authors write a one line dedication. Sarah Ku did an amazing job with all the calligraphy signs. She used black paper and accented it with gold ink. She also framed some famous quotes by literary geniuses and that tied the theme together really well. We placed old vintage books throughout the space and added fresh blooms to add some color to all the neutral toned furniture. Guests were then welcomed to enjoy some savory bites that was prepared by the co-maid of honors. I mean, just look at all of that deliciousness! We enjoyed the rest of the shower by playing some games and couldn't help but giggle while the bride to be opened her gifts. The guests all took home a personalized mini succulent as a party favor and just like that, the shower was a huge success!!!
