Umbrellas Needed: Part 1

I really love throwing parties and hosting cookouts. I'm kinda the go-to girl for organizing events amongst our group of friends, and that's totally fine with me because I really enjoy it! I love deciding on what food and drinks to have, making the place look nice and festive, and getting a bunch of people together for a good time. But...I also really enjoy it when someone else plans a party for me and all I have to do is show up! Especially when it turns out to be an awesome bridal shower full of family & friends, games, yummy food, and good times.

The hostesses with the mostest-es (eh?) were my stepmom and two aunts, hereafter referred to as The 3 Peas.

My future MIL was gracious enough to lend us her home as the party location too!

They decided on a kitchen theme and asked everyone to bring a recipe and ingredients to make that item. This was perfect for me, since I love to eat! They really committed to the theme and carried it out through the decor. See?
Yes, there is broccoli and asparagus in that centerpiece and...they made it! Me thinks someone will be helping out with the centerpiece arranging at the reception....

Another centerpiece...and, the favors as well! Each guest got a whisk and a dish towel.

They had lots of yummy food and included recipe cards for how to make the yummy foods...

And kitchen themed signage!

As well as a kitchen themed corsage...and there's not much I love more than a wrist corsage!

I love that they put so much thought into it and really committed to the theme. I felt so showered with thoughtfulness and love. And then came the games and a big surprise...but that's for next time!

Did you have any events or gifts in your wedding planning that made you really feel the love?
