Soon to be Mrs....

So today was a day that I have been looking forward to for a long time!
My "baby," sisters bridal shower!
She's only been engaged since April. But I've known for-ev-er that she and Joshua were going to get married some day.
And that I'd obviously be her maid of honor (obviously!) and since party planning is my jam, I knew I'd most likely be the one throwing/hosting this shindig.
I'll be super honest, I'm exhausted right now. So this post won't be very long. I'll post at a later time about more of the details and definitely more photos.

A had some easy finger foods, desserts, and wine. Lots of wine.
I didn't go all out on the food because it was 2pm, so it's not lunch and its too early for an evening meal...so just snacks. And wine. Lots of wine. Lol.
My mom and my best friends helped with food. And Joshua's grandma made the cake.

I did some basic decorating. A cute sign out front, a few garlands and paper lanterns, and pretty table cloths, plates, silverware, etc.

I made the favors and prizes for the games. More on those later.

I had a henna artist come and do traditional mendhi designs on anyone who wanted them. My sister Erin, best friend Gioia, and dear friend Mary all got awesome hand pieces done! Some others got cute things on their wrists and arms. Me?
I had to do my shoulder because my work has a very strict no tattoo policy and I'm sure they wouldn't like this. Also I wash my hands 500,897 times a day...so it just made sense to do it up there so that it would stay longer!

We played just one game, because Hannah didn't want anything at all cheesy or awkward. She also hates to be the center of attention...which is kinda hard when you are the bride, but I tried.

Then we opened gifts and drank more wine. It was very low key and fun and I think everyone had a good time.

But like I said, I'm effing exhausted and I'm going to end this here. I will post most pics and details of what all I made, etc later.

Ill close this with a classic Briner girl photo. We really don't take good pictures, so we just eff it up on purpose. That's how we roll.
