Sneak Peak

A few weeks ago, I posted about an upcoming bridal shower I'm hosting for a friend.  Well my mind hasn't stopped racing with ideas and preparations since then.  I told Wes I'd be glad when it's over and he just rolled his eyes - that's code for "why do you get yourself into these things if they cause you so much stress?" 

The answer is simple, I love it.  I love the process, the creative outlet, the cooking/baking, and the end result.  It's like 1 month worth of work all in 2 short hours.  It honestly is all worth it in the end but I have seriously invested no fewer than 100+ hours of brainpower on this 1 shower.  And after it's said and done, I'll move on to Colin's b-day June!

Here's a sneak peak at a few of the details (many more to come after the big event).  I have made nearly every accessory by hand, as I am becoming more and more frugal by the day!
