Today I'm thrilled to share the highlights from my beautiful bridal shower at Haven's Kitchen NYC. I was incredibly touched by all of the thoughtful details put together by my sister(s), cousin and friends. The tables were decorated with my favorite pale pink peonies, wedding photos of my grandparents and aunts and uncles, cute confetti photos of me and my groom and delicious macarons at each place setting.
Literally, all my favorite things in one place.
Ingredients for the signature cocktail 'The Julie' with prosecco, St. Germain, and elderberry.
Originally I wanted cake-in-a-jar served for dessert at the wedding, but it didn't quite fit our 'theme'. So, my hostesses made sure I got my cake and ate it too-- just at my bridal shower instead! The flavor was a rhubarb and lemon sponge cake with lavender sprinkled on top. So fragrant and delicious!
Prints are in!
My gorgeous baby nieces and all my incredible hostesses. Love you all.
The day had so many clever honeymoon-inspired Greek-themed under tones like my favorite NARS makeup in shades of Santorini eyeshadow and Greek Holiday lip-gloss as prizes for the adorable games we played.
I was also given an incredible photo collage of a newly-married Jackie Onassis on the Greek island of Skorpios. She looks young, fresh and absolutely care-free. My guests inscribed the back of the frame with well wishes for our honeymoon and beyond, which is such a beautiful lasting memento of this special time in my life. It's like a little time capsule, I absolutely love it! I think it's one of the most beautiful and meaningful gifts I've ever received; I can't wait to make it the center of our gallery wall in our new apartment.
Life is good! And I'm so grateful to my amazing sister for all her hard work in making my special day so absolutely unforgettable.
