My Fiesta Shower!

Earlier this month, I was blessed with an amazing and thoughtful party that I honest to God never thought would happen for me.  It was my bridal shower day and I absolutely loved every minute of it!  I guess there is something special about YOUR shower and having everyone that you know and love from all different families and circles in one place for YOU!  But it was truly better than I ever thought it would be and know it will be a day I will treasure forever!



Because my fiance and I will be honeymooning in Cancun, Mexico, we decided to make it a Fiesta theme and it truly did not disappoint!  Just check out the decor inside and out!




Food and cocktails were served inside.  There was a “taco bar”, crock pots filled with chicken and beef and toppings of your choice spread out on the table.  We also had tortilla chips and a variety of salsas, queso, and guac!  


"una flor para las madres"
It was Mother's Day weekend, so any guests that were mothers took one! 


And of course at MY shower there was no shortage of alcohol.  Margaritas, Sangria, or Corona... you want it, we’ve got it!  

Dollar store cactus glasses.
Mason jar mugs from One Kings Lane.
Real Sangria... tastes like homemade!


After mingling, visiting, and eating some of the food, we did presents and games outside on the patio.  My MOH had everyone write a date idea on a popsicle stick and put it in this adorbs container for us to pull from throughout the years.  I’m not sure he will go for the one marked “Go to a Steelers game”, but then again, it was written by the same person who bought me a new jersey as part of my gift.  I have already warned her that if we get divorced, she will be blamed ;)  


We also played the game where I have to answer questions the way my fiance would and if I get it wrong I have to eat a piece of bubble gum.  I was 5 for 10 which I honestly don’t think is too shabby!  



I seriously cannot believe all of the thoughtful and generous gifts that people got us.  They truly went above and beyond and I am so grateful for everyone in our life! 


Before people left we were sure to snap a few fun pictures of the bridal party, props and all! 



We also encouraged all of the guests to have a slice of cake and package up a bag of cookies for themselves.  The cookie table is a Pittsburgh wedding tradition, but since I truly do not feel like dealing with it on the wedding day, I thought the shower would be a great place to have it!




I realize this makes me a total baby, but I literally cried on Monday because it was over and I wanted to do it again.  So much I fun I hate to see it end!  Good thing there's and even bigger party to come!
