Move Over Martha Stewart

I'm actually still laying in bed this morning, with no intention of getting up anytime soon. I had such a long and fun filled day yesterday, so I'm completely exhausted. After working at the Nursing Home in the morning, I rushed over to help set up for my sister's bridal shower, that afternoon. Our theme was 'Vintage Tea Party' .. and she loved it! Many of our preparations were homemade, so it was very time consuming. In the end, it was all worth it.



Our main table was decorated with basically, anything Vintage that we could find. We used an old miniature garden chair, some tattered books that we thrifted and tiered floral plates. There was also an old lace table cloth that fit the look perfectly. As far as food, since it was a tea party, there weren't many 'heavy foods' served. We served mini sandwiches, scones, macarons, tea biscucits, croissants with marmalade and muffins. Because we weren't serving any heavy food, we made sure to schedule the party for around 3pm, which is in between most people's meals anyway.


On the dessert table, we used pictures from the engagement shoot and had them in vintage frames. I thought this was the cutest idea. It also helped that the theme of their shoot fit right in with our theme anyways. It was a very floral, outdoorsy, simple shoot .. and it was absolutely perfect. For dessert, we had a huge cake as well as these beautifully decorated cake pops. All the dessert was actually prepared by a friend of my sister and every time I see her work, I am blown away. If you ever need cakes and you're in the Toronto area, check out Rosalina's Cakes. There were a few kids running around at the shower and I guarantee that this was their favorite part.




Next, meet the bride herself. She's the real star of the show and we were all just so happy that she seemed to enjoy herself. Good food, great company and presents! What's not to love?

Last, but certainly not least ... the planners. My other sister and I. Of course, we can't take all the credit. We had a lot of help from my mother and two other cousins. They were the 'do-ers'. I like to consider them the behind the scenes chefs. It was an amazing evening and I'm very blessed to have been a part of it. If you are interested in knowing more about the games that we played or any other part of the evening, feel free to ask me in a comment below!
