Bridal Shower - Part 1

The beautiful bride to be
We had my sister Kacy's bridal shower yesterday.  The weather did not cooperate.  Thank goodness we had lots of guys with connections on hand to find and set up tents that morning.
I employed two three year olds to help me dry off all of the chairs before the guests arrived.  They surprisingly did a pretty great job.
There were about 60 people invited.  Only 9 RSVP'd that they would be attending.  I think about 50 showed up.  I'm glad we over planned in the food department.
I was in charge of the chocolate fountain.  I enjoyed buying all of the goodies to dip in it.  The fountain started making loud noises about two hours in and we had to turn it off.  People didn't seem to mind just scooping up spoonfuls of chocolate though.
funfetti cake - the sister's favorite (really the only cake she likes)
Tomorrow I will post photos of the games.  Usually I hate shower games, but I had fun while they were going on at this party.  Maybe it's because I was taking photos instead of participating?  Either way, there are some pretty good action shots.
Happy Monday!


  1. My husband's family LOVES funfetti cake:-) We just had them in cupcake form this past weekend! Bummer about the crazy bi-polar Oregon weather, we were having a big party too. But it cleared up in time, (in Salem). Looks like you guys still had a fabulous time celebrating! xoxo

  2. i love your sister's face in the first picture. oh yum funfetti cake i haven't had that in awhile, too long actually maybe i need to end my funfetti drought.

  3. I can't wait to see the pics of the toilet paper dress game funny how that was the first game that popped up when I googled bridal shower games, but I was shocked at how well it turned out. Also I want to see pics of the cute three year olds. All in all the shower was a success and really fun, kacy got some cool gifts as well

  4. Fun! It's amazing that it rained in JULY! Usually you are free to plan any type of outdoor fun in July in Oregon... crazy weather. I'm glad you were able to make it work!

  5. What a cute party! I hate it when the weather decides to do the opposite of what you need it to! It still turned out great.
