Grey Likes Weddings Rockin' a new rock?!

This past weekend I was blessed to have attended my first bridal shower hosted by my very talented aunts. As noted in this post, I had a Pampered Chef Bridal Shower. It’s safe to say I am set on kitchen and cookware from here on out. As someone who is a self-proclaimed ‘non-cook’, I’m excited to put all of our new kitchen additions to good use!

For the decor, my aunts were stumped until I granted them access to my private wedding Pinterest board. Some could consider it a bit Persian Chic inspired. Pink and gold details, a cocktail entitled Little Pink Dress, a DIY tassel garland and large pink paper flowers.  As for the food, salted caramel macaroons and red velvet mini cupcakes, Watermelon Sour Patch Kids, and of course, a personal request for my grandma’s homemade chex mix {I’m addicted}.

After all of my guests arrived, I partnered up with our Pampered Chef host and created a tasty fruit salsa that I had to create in front my audience, talk about pressure. Using a few items that I ended up receiving in my gift haul, I managed to create a delicious appetizer that I can’t wait to recreate! Followed up with the opening of all my Pampered Chef goodies, we played two bridal shower games – Name That Movie, a quiz matching up romantic quotes to their namesake movie {I got 100%, the only bridal shower attendee to do so, man I love RomComs}, and the Purse game. It’s official, women carry their entire lives in their handbags.

I was very happy with how my shower turned out, it was exactly what I had envisioned and was so me. But most of all, I was happy to be celebrating our upcoming wedding {it finally felt real} with my closest friends and family.
