Let me just say it was a VERY windy day!….
With that said I had many "Marilyn Monroe" moments with my dress…lol.
For those of you who may be wondering no this is not my bridal shower, but my beautiful cousins bridal shower. Myself and her best friend were the Maids of Honor and as the MOH's we through her a honeymoon themed shower. She is planing on spending her honeymoon cruising in the western Caribbean. So we decided to make the party all things tropical.
The event was outside in her future mother-in laws house by the pool. We created a "photo booth" with fishnet and star fishes to capture all of the goofy moments.
For the appetizers we choose to do veggie platters, fruit platters, cheese platers and banana fried chips. The entree was chicken and meat skewers. Desert were homemade vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with blue icing and edible shells made of white chocolate. Those were a big hit!
No shower is complete without a signature drink! We named her drink the "Caribbean Queen". It was sangria from Beso del Sol. Which fit perfect with our tropical theme. The sangria was amazing! ..and you would never guess it's wine from a BOX! Yup! All the girls loved it. The great thing was that the box was equivalent to 4 bottles of wine, so we had plenty to drink!
