Mexican Themed Bridal Shower
Skinny Bride loved, LOVED, her Mexican Bridal Shower! She texted me last night after the shower and told me it was the best bridal shower she could have dreamed of, such a success!
With the help from my work I was able to really go all out with the Mexican themed decorations. I tried to make it as bright and colorful as possible.
I had Sombreros for every table along with mini Maracas!
The Skittles were a big hit!
We had a few different drinks that were available at the bar: summer sangria, margaritas, iced tea, and water.
This was my first time making Sangria, everyone loved it and I had a few
too many glasses myself.
Inspired by Tina, I made Skinny Bride a cute little bride sombrero.
As well as a fun chili lei.
The calm before the storm…I was all ready for the guest to come!
I even got these cute blinking pins for the guest to wear. It was a fun game, if you said the word wedding people got to steal your pin.
Skinny Bride looked so happy and soooo beautiful!!!
They tackled everything in site, you would have never realized there were women at this party ;).
I made myself a little plate( but nibbled throughout the party).
I ate some of the yummy burrito but was to busy being a hostess to finish.
We played a couple of fun Bridal Shower games, my favorite being the toilet paper wedding dress game.
Some of these dresses were incredible! Can you believe this was all out of TP?!
Of course there was cake, Chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and cheese cake filling!! I refrained, only because I don’t like cake, it looked amazing!
After cake and games the Bride opened all presents!! I loved the money tree someone brought, what a cute idea.

What a fun day, and look who showed up to help clean up!!! I seriously have the best Hubby in the world :).
Today has been just what I needed relaxing and rejuvenating! I had 9 hours of sleep, had fun teaching Sunday school, lunch with Hubby at Mimi’s and now I am ready to go teach kick boxing!
