English Tea Bridal Shower

A few months ago my beautiful bridesmaids coordinated an adorably and incredibly aptly themed English Tea Bridal Shower.

Those who have known me for a long time know I adore all the cute english tea cups and rain coats and gorgeous architecture and accents and and and … well its a problem mostly. Anyhow, these girls did their best to create a tea party for me in the middle of July in San Diego.

My sweet friend Tuyen even made this gorgeous “High Tea with the Bride-to-Be” sign I almost died over. Don’t you think she should sell these on etsy?! This sign greeted guests as they walked in.

Directly underneath was an opportunity for people to leave sweet messages, which they did. I was so overwhelmed when I read them at home.

Everything was adorable and sweet!

Really though the photos don’t even do it justice. Everything was so gorgeous, it brought tears to my eyes. IMG_5233

It was simple, but so elegant.

I didn’t get to take as many photos as I would have liked because I just got swept up in the day. One thing I didn’t get a picture of was the absolutely amazing sweet iced tea my friend Melissa made. Peach Bourbon Iced Tea to be exact. It was a great thing to have because July in San Diego is not your typical tea weather! It was made of english breakfast tea, peach nectar, frozen peaches, mint and bourbon. Bomb.com

 And all of the cupcakes were made by my MOH and bestie! How cute are these little roses.

So sweet. I loved every minute of it <333333

Exquisite Weddings Magazine: Kate Spade Inspired Bridal Shower

Hi all! I’m so very excited!! A few months back a good friend of mine Danielle asked me if I would be a part of a collaborative effort to put together an inspiration shoot for a Kate Spade themed bridal shower.

Of course I said yes! In fact, that is where the inspiration for the Pink Champagne package came from! It started as my contribution for this project and grew from there.

IMG_1809I designed the paper goods. This means the invitations and any signage or name cards that you see were done by yours truly.
