Tea Party Bridal Shower

Hey friends! You may be wondering why I haven’t posted a missionary outfit this week and I have a simple answer: I’ve been busy planning this bridal shower. So I apologize for the lack of modest fashion, but you’ve got to check out this adorable bridal shower! Lydia is one of my closest friends so when she told me she was getting married when I would be in Berlin, I knew I had to throw an epic bridal shower. Lydia is so adorable so I needed the bridal shower to reflect that all the way. Hannah and I brainstormed, pinterested (yes it’s a verb now) and thrift shopped to our hearts’ content. We spent all Saturday listening to General Conference and baking. We decorated in between sessions but an hour later it started raining! #aprilbridalSHOWERS We quickly brought everything inside and prayed that the sun would come out. Sure enough, after conference ended the sun came out and we quickly redecorated. The food was delicious, the guests were hilarious, and the decorations were dry! Haha, so I’d say that it was a successful bridal shower.

We love you Lydia!

The tea party (relative term since we drank pink lemonade) was a blast! Lydia I am so happy for you and Dallas! He may be your soul mate but he will never be your failing German buddy. En Lenven Yen!

It feels great to relax now, put my feet up, and listen to the words of the Prophets at General Conference. Do you want to hear it too? Click Here! I promise you that this week I will put up mission fashion pictures.
