My First Wedding Shower

This weekend was a very nice, but busy weekend! I had 2 wedding showers to attend for my dear friend Katie. One Saturday, in Covington and one Sunday at the Phi Mu house, which I was a co-host for. I am in two weddings this summer, which conveniently fall 2 weeks apart. This means lots of showers and dates to keep straight, and a lot of double-booked Saturdays and Sundays. I have come to the conclusion that I have just flat out gone crazy. I can't seem to keep it all straight anymore no matter how hard I try!  The two other girls who hosted with me and I decided it would be easiest to just assign jobs that we would each be over, especially since one of the girls lives out of town. So, our out of town friend took care of invites, the other girl took care of decorations, and I was over food. I have never hosted a shower of any sort in my life, and my anxiety was at an all time high! Thankfully, everything turned out just fine and I am pretty sure I can call my first shower a success. Here are a few pictures I snapped of the food and decor. It was all fairly simple because the house is already pretty nicely decorated and we wanted easy clean-up, but it looked great nonetheless.

Food Table and Banner
Cute napkins!

Food Table - Wheat thins, spinach dip , veggies, pinwheels, chicken salad croissants
Dessert - Fruit and homemade fruit dip, cupcakes from Muddy's (They tried to incorporate the bride peacock theme by using pretty sprinkles and making one with that beautiful teal icing!)
Me, the bride-to-be, and one of the other two hostesses.
And while this has nothing to do with the shower and is hard to see - my sweet boyfriend took me to Texas de Brazil for dinner since he knew I had a long, semi-stressful day. It was DELICIOUS as always!

What did you do this weekend?
