My baby sister is getting married! We have been in full blown wedding mode the last few months. This Saturday was her Bridal Shower. She has always wanted to have a cozy winter wedding. Check out these cute photos!
Sparkly, spray-painted pine cones.
The gift table!
Cute pom-pom garland. This ended up being a great backdrop for photos!
The highlight of the day: The Hot Chocolate Bar.
All the yum.
Sweet Chelsea. Bridesmaid! And modeling her delicious hot cocoa.
So. Much. Food.
One of our good family friends, Cindy, brings this to Bridal Showers she attends. Its her "Good Luck Bride". It was a decoration at her own shower over 30 years ago! So sweet :)
Here we are with our friend, Cindy!
All the maids and the bride in the middle!
A few weeks ago we had a decoration party with all the bridesmaids, Jessy's future mother-in-law, and Cindy, our family friend. They helped make all the decorations, and they also were amazing helping the day of!
I'm over the moon excited for Jessy, and her fiance, Nick. The only downside to this engagement is she's moving to Maryland!! We are all proud of Nick -- he is a police officer in Baltimore! Jessy will be joining him after they are married. I made these state mugs for us. I think I saw teary eyes when she opened them <3 p="">3>

The tutorial I used.
Us with our beautiful, generous mom! She and I had so much fun planning the shower.
Jessy and her future mother-in-law!
We played this "Nearly-Wed" game. Before the shower, I videotaped Nick answering questions... such as "Where was your first date?" "First kiss?" "Jessy's Favorite Color?" etc.
Jessy answered the questions live, and then we heard Nick's answer. They did great and were totally cute.
No party is complete without tissue paper poms.
Jessy is an excellent baker & decorator. People know it too, because she received a lot of cake & cupcake themed gifts!
