A Bridal Shower With a Retro Desperate Housewives Theme


I'm so excited to show you pictures from our daughter's 
bridal shower. This is one of those moments in time where
everything was just perfect, but as you remember the evening
just gets better and better.


It was held at my friend Debi's home. 
She has a gorgeous home and is incredibly gifted with 
so many talents. Decorating, painting and hospitality to name a few.
Her big gift is party planning and yes... she is for hire. :) 

Here is a link to her Etsy Shop
If you like MacKenzie Childs.... do NOT go there. 
That is all I'm going to say about that. :)

***


The party had a fun Retro Desperate Housewives feel to it. 


Each guest got to take home a darling handmade apron. 



And a Betty Crocker cheese grater too! 


I mean seriously... it just doesn't get any sweeter than this.


We even had a cooking show and the set later served as a 
photo booth. 
Look at that darling turquoise kitchen
SOOOO cute!










50's themed appetizers... including cheese whiz on crackers!


This was the gift table (pre gifts) .... so much fun! 
Thank you Debi!

I'll be joining:

A Bridal Shower with a Retro Desperate Housewives Theme! This colorful theme and decoration is truly adorable. My sister loves popping colors and this theme will be best choice for her bridal shower. Planning to book garden San Francisco venues for the event.
