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.

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.

We played a couple of fun Bridal Shower games, my favorite being the toilet paper wedding dress game.

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.

Everybody is correct! Bobbi is an incredible friend.I seriously could not have asked for a more beautiful, fun, and happenin' bridal shower! All the guests were super impressed and loved it. BIG thanks to Bobbi's Aunt Yo for letting us have the shower there! :) She was so sweet. I was so sad when the shower ended lol now the big day is 12 days away! I CAN'T believe it!
