my best friend's wedding is just around the corner! rachel is a southern girl with a love of soul food. katherine and i decided we wanted to have a shower that incorporated her classy style with her southern roots. i think we nailed it. the menu consisted of ocra fritters, the mother of the bride's famous baked beans, texas caviar, a fantastic trifle made by my mother in law, chicken salad crossants, and friend green beans to name a few. we had a mimosa bar with bellini, a classic mimosa, and the bride's favorite white grape mimosa. one of my favorite elements was the glass jars filled with baby's breath. it gave the tables this soft rustic feel that i love. we didn't have any planned games or activities because rachel isn't that kind of bride. instead, we all went around the room saying sweet things about the bride and giving our best advice for the bride and groom. it was an emotional moment, but one we will never forget. here are some pictures i snapped of the sweet day.
