My baby sister is getting married!
This past weekend both families hosted a Parisian-inspired vintage floral tea party (minus the tea party) bridal shower for the lovely bride. We wore hats. We ate French macarons out of teacups (and because of the heat, we did not end up drinking any tea out of the teacups). We played a couple of games (a hat contest, a quiz about Paris, and a poem inspired by this Pinterest pin). We ate sweet petit fours (that my mom baked! in an oven in a house with no air conditioning! in this heat!) and yummy tea sandwiches (that my sister's in-laws prepared). We drank Perrier, Kir Royale, and pink lemonade margaritas (because it's not a party for my sister without tequila). It was fabulous.
Next up, I'm planning the bachelorette party. There will be Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and some Soul Train involved...
