Fast Forward.... a few months and it was time for bridal shower planning! After we decided on a Parisian theme (for her love of Paris), I was thrilled to design postcard invitations. I decided to sneak in a little personal symbolism by adding two lion statues beside the fountain in my illustration.

I was determined to make themed cookies from scratch and try my hand at making icing and piping. I bought this Eiffle Tower cookie cutter and was shocked when it arrived. I didn't realize how gynormous it would be (3" x 5"), but it was probably for the best.... the details would have been near impossible on a small cookie. Aside from the blue icing being a lot lighter than I wanted, I'm pretty pleased with the results. And they tasted OH SO GOOD!
We also played the hilarious game of Toilet Paper Gowns.... each table had to choose a "bride" and then had 5 minutes to craft the best wedding dress. Our lovely (true) bride-to-be had her photo taken with each "bride" and then chose a winner!

I'm looking forward to being by her side on the big day!
And then, three months later, she'll stand beside me at my wedding too :)
