Surprise! Showering Mikaela! July 6, 2013

Filed under: Family,Parties — Kelocity @ 5:07 pm

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.

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!

Ashley’s family lives back on the East Coast, and they wanted to be part of the Baby Shower action too! So her sister and mom organized a ‘Skype Shower’ where everyone could “see” Ashley open up all her gifts!!

It was SUCH a cute idea. All the gifts were shipped to my house so they would be a surprise! And they even sent us plates, napkins, balloons and favors that matched theirs!

Before the shower, Ashley came over early and made me homemade crepes! (Learning how to cook, remember?)

The key is the nutella and the whipped cream (obviously!)
