This past weekend I had the honor of hosting a bridal shower for one of my best friends at the Jefferson Street Mansion in Benicia! Melanie and I have known each other since the fourth grade. It feels like just yesterday we were going to Jr. High together, or wondering where we would meet our future husbands. You always worry a little when your friends go away to college that you might drift apart. Melanie just graduated Liberty University in Virginia but through all these years, every time she comes home it’s like nothing has changed and we jump right back into where we left off. I love that about our friendship!
My mom helped me co-host the shower and she created amazing custom signage for the shower. I can never rave about her enough. We scavenged her house for vintage cookbooks and tins for the drink tables, then transformed antique drawers with flowers from a storage locker we found at a flea market. I was so lucky to have amazing table linens from Candy Crush Events! Her table linens really brought the whole shower design to another level. I’m in love with her products.
I was so fortunate to have help from friends with bringing balloons, donuts, appetizers, etc.. Melanie, I hope you had a fantastic time at your shower and can’t wait to stand by you as you marry your man in August
