spring bridal showers.

this past weekend, my sweet friend alex and i hosted a bridal shower for our precious abbey who is getting married in may! abbey has been in my core group for the past four years. we met when she was a sophomore in college and i had just graduated. i was taking over as the new leader of the bible study she was in...my college bestie had led the group through their freshman year. i have loved not only being the leader of that group, but also becoming friends with all of those girls. abbey was so quiet to start out, but once you get to know her, she opens up. :) she is such a sweet, tenderhearted person, and i have loved watching her grow in her relationship with others and with the Lord over the past few years. it has truly been a joy.

when alex and i were planning for this shower, we wanted a theme that was classic and feminine. we went with mints and pinks and gold. in order to keep the cost down, we made all of the desserts and decorations ourselves. we were so pleased with how everything turned out!



we spent time sharing stories about how we met abbey/funny and awkward moments, opening gifts, and praying over abbey's upcoming marriage. it really was a beautiful time of fellowship together celebrating this sweet lady. love you, abs! i can't wait until may!

The shower looks beautiful!! I love that you made your own decorations! The cost for food and decor can seriously add up quickly! And I second Amy's comment below, I'd love to see a tutorial on that banner!

You did such a great job! Gold, pink (coral), and mint were my wedding colors and the decor reminds me a lot of it. We even had gold dots on the tables! So fun! I can tell y'all put a lot of effort into making it look really nice. I'm sure your friend felt loved!
