Surprise! Showering Mikaela! July 6, 2013

After a week of party after party, we weren’t finished yet! We still had to orchestrate Mikaela’s Bridal shower at the end of it all! It’s really amazing we were all able to keep it a secret since everyone was getting together day after day. We were all so nervous someone would slip up, but she swears she was really surprised! She thought Laurie, Adele and I were leaving on early morning flights, so we had a faux tearful goodbye the night before…. but….SURPRISE!!!!

We hosted her special party on the lawn of my grandparents house. We had rented a tent, though even the shade did nothing to combat against the severe heat and humidity! It was a scorching hot day, but everyone had a great time. I’d say it was a success.
All of her bridesmaids were there to celebrate Mikaela. She is a lucky girl to have friends like this!

We’re all so excited for Mikaela & Chris’s wedding in October! Which reminds me, I need to find some shoes.

We set up a photobooth in the corner and everyone had a BLAST taking pictures. I think it was the hit of the party. We have a talented photographer on our Team Bridesmaid that took some great shots.

And yes, I accidentally broke the glass of this frame when I was taking it apart. It was a labor of love.



We had a nice spread of food for everyone to enjoy while Mikaela mingled with her family and friends.


The Cake!

And we played a few games in there too.

All in all, it was so much fun to celebrate my sister. I know everyone is looking forward to celebrating these two in a few more months. Love you guys!
