Something Sexy, Something Sweet...

My best friend Jen is getting married on October 2!  We have been friends since we were nine years old.  She was my Maid of Honor in my wedding two years ago, and I am honored to be the Matron of Honor in hers!  I was pleased to host and plan this Lingerie Shower for her ~ it was so much fun!  Here are some pictures from the evening...

The invitations

Chocolate Diet Coke Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Frosting

Marshmallow Pops inspired by Hostess with the Mostess

Food consisted of light, but yummy appetizers & pasta salad.  Spanish Sangria and Mike's Hard Pink Lemonade was served to go along with the color scheme (and because they are both delicious!).

I got to use many of my gifts to the bride as decor.  So fun!
The "Ooh~La~La!" banner added a nice touch.

That's me on the left and Jen, the bride (fittingly in white) on the right.  Doesn't she look beautiful?!
Jen went to FIDM and has worked as a fashion designer for GUESS until she recently started working at a popular Bridal Salon, Mon Amie.  Given her career in fashion, I thought it would be totally fitting to play one game where all of the girls designed "Wedding Night Lingerie" for Jen.  The game was hilarious!

After the shower, we headed out to Newport Beach for a little Ladies' Night out.  We had a blast!  We spent the night in the suite and spent the following day lounging at the pool of the Marriott, Newport Beach Bayview ~ it doesn't get much better than that!

I had so much fun designing everything for this shower; from the invitations to the menu, and the decor & games.  Thanks to all of the ladies who came out and showered Jen with love, gifts, and fun!  I love you, Jen.  Congratulations ~ Can't wait for the wedding!


  1. wow, you are such a designer! I love all the details and the colors you choose! The panties on the string are so funny, yet perfect! My sister is getting married in November and I think I'm going to have to do that for her shower :)

  2. I love love love this!! Everything is perfect!
