Almost Mrs! An Intimate Bridal Shower for a Best Friend

Love, Laughter and Happily Ever After

YOU’RE INVITED TO A BRIDAL SHOWER HONORING

 Cynthia Anderson

Saturday the twenty eighth of July at two o’clock in the afternoon

Cynthia has been my dear “best good friend” from the moment I met her in 2008.  Sounds corny… but entirely true.  This southern girl meets this cool, west coast beauty and BOOM!…we become instant lifelong friends.   Our ten year journey thus far might as well be 100 in my eyes!  My bridal shower co-host and fellow bridesmaid also shares a deep friendship with Cynthia.  Kelsey, also a Californian, and Cynthia have been besties since they were small children!  So when it came to planning Cynthia’s shower?  Well…we had to make it a day to remember…

8 ft cheese board
The 8′ long cheese board included a variety of cheeses, charcuterie, watermelon and feta skewers, apple, sharp cheddar and honey rounds, chicken cheese balls and gorgonzola balls, fresh and dried fruit, nuts, olives and cookies…interwoven with fresh seeded eucalyptus.  Basically a cheeseboard lovers’ heaven.  It was so fun to sort of graze the board, nibble, talk and graze a bit more…
Say Cheese!
SAY “CHEESE”!!!! Literally…!

Bridal Shower Guests

If I have one signature cookie, it’s the SUGAR CRACKER. Sweet, salty, crunchy, yummy. They serve as perfect favors for guests.

It was a stunning day filled with love, laughter, happy tears, friendships far and wide, family and fellowship.  I cannot wait to watch the love between Miss Cynthia Anderson and Mr. Timothy Cook continue to blossom and flourish and look forward to standing beside them as they unite in holy matrimony!  May your love for one another deepen with each passing day and may you never miss a moment as you are #cookingupalife!!!  I love you both with all my heart!

Your forever friend,

Sabrina

PS…Again…huge thank you to Kelsey Perusse for co-hosting the day and for my friends who helped take some of the pictures you are viewing in this post!  Love to all!
