Unless you've been living under a rock; you know that I've spent the last several months planning Mia's bridal shower. Unless you're here for the first time, that is, which, if so, welcome! For the rest of you, it finally happened! And it went as planned!
Our theme, was Brunch and Bubbly. I did a decent job of documenting the bubbly part; the brunch, not so much. So, you'll have to take my word for it when I say the menu was a huge hit! I served a breakfast casserole that is rapidly becoming a fan favorite, mini quiches, sausage links, mixed fruit, a selection of pastries, and mini pancake skewers with tiny syrup bowls. The pancakes were a huge hit and everyone assumed they were incredibly time consuming to prepare, which couldn't be farther from the truth (my secret weapon? A turkey baster. Not even kidding).
The bubbly portion of the party was also a huge hit. We served mimosas, wine, and coffee. The wine was in the champagne fountain (which really has no business billing itself as a champagne fountain because champagne won't flow through the damn thing; learned that one the hard way, which is why we had to serve the pink champagne from a pitcher), and the champagne bottles were chilling in the rose ice cubes that I'd spent months freezing. Well, two of the champagne bottles were chilling that way; we actually ended up going through eight bottles of champagne, the majority of which were in the fridge until we needed to pop them open (not kidding about this being a boozy bash).
I am so glad I offered to host and that Queen B was there to help. We make a great team and I always love doing this kind of thing with her. Sadly, we had to say goodbye again of Sunday, but, my girl reassured me by whipping out her phone and showing me the countdown to the wedding on her calendar. Only 18 days until we see her again.
I can't wait.
