An Unbirthday Shower

It's been a while since I posted the monogrammed sugar cookies, and I promised to go into details of my sister-in-law Jenn's bridal shower, so here they are.

Jenn wanted to use the shower to celebrate the people around her who have helped shape the woman she's become. While we picked an Alice in Wonderland theme because of her deep love of the story, it also worked out to be a big unbirthday party for Jenn and all her friends.

All the decorations were taken care of by Cheryl, and she did a fine job from designing all the tags to making custom streamers to fit the occasion. Food was done by yours truly, and we had a variety tea sandwiches and stuffed mushrooms, and a chocolate raspberry cake to finish with.

Probably my favorite part of the shower was the time spent dressing up Jenn paper dolls in wedding garb uniquely designed by each of us. This was a different take on the typical toilet paper wedding dress game, and it was refreshing to have a creative outlet in this way. Everyone participated and there were some stunning designs!

Now the bridal shower has gone, and it's time for the actual nuptial celebrations. I'm heading out this morning to St. Thomas for the wedding, and I know everything will turn out great. Jenn, I love you, and I'm so excited for you and Chris! Congratulations!
