Wedding Shower for Janna

My good friend Marissa is the hostess with the mostest! She put together a bridal shower for our dear friend Janna, who is getting married in a few short weeks. From the drinks, to the food, to the decor and all the details--it was truly amazing. But, if you know Marissa...you really can't expect anything less. :)

She found some really cute fabric at Ikea and made it into table runners, then made the invites to match. The rain kept us out of the tents and brought us into Janna's mother's dining room, but we all fit perfectly. She put together an amazing spread of food, complete with pulled pork, grilled brie and apricot preserve sandwiches, red pepper hummus, mozzarella/tomato/basil skewers and my favorite...cupcakes!

Marissa designed a really cute poster filled with each year of Janna's life and asked each guest to place their name (which was written oh-so-pretty on a baby blue flag) into the year of which we first met the bride. Then, we were to write our first memory of Janna on a matching piece of paper. I am sure she loved reading those once all the guests headed home.

For the shower game, because really--what is a shower without a game, there was was a cupcake decorating contest. A table of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes was surrounded by an array of frostings and decorations. Each guest was to decorate one showing how they thought Janna should decorate her wedding cupcakes. Janna chose the winner, who went home with a lovely red journal adorned with the couples initial, "J."The best part was the end of the game, when we all ate our masterpieces.

Thank you Marissa for throwing such a fabulous shower!
