for the bride to bee

 Well here they are, photos from the shower, severely narrowed down. It was so much fun to plan. Catherine was the true mastermind & came up with a honey theme early on, & it just snowballed from there. We ended up using both levels of the house; basement for food, and upstairs for gifts..

The invites, designed by the talented Becca... 



The set-up downstairs
- (don't judge too harshly, lighting in our basement is not the best + I am not a good photographer) - 

I cut out the hexagons & Cat put them together to make honeycomb (idea here). 
I also made tassel garlands for the tables. 


"8 hour cake" as I lovingly refer to the below creation. 7 layers! I wish you could have seen me frosting this at 2 am. Then you might appreciate why I didn't want to cut into it at all. I loved & hated making this. I'm ready for round two just to see if I can perfect the rosette. 


Summer cucumber bites & honey-glazed bacon wrapped chicken bites (so good & easy!).


 Amy made macaroons & they were to die for.


Cat's Cucumber Mint Water & Citrus Soda

I also made a mini fruit pizza bar & honey caramel dip, but I guessed I missed photos of those. You best try that honey caramel dip, it is delectable. 

After everyone was done eating we moved the party upstairs...


Cat set up the cutest table for everyone to make their own honey lip scrub. 
She also did all the labels for everything. Her handwriting is known to be the best in the land.


We had Amy pick out her favorite pictures from their seven years together & we made a timeline of sorts.



 Gifts...








For the favors everyone took home their lip scrub they made, a sample of chanel perfume (Amy sprayed her letters to Danny with it when he was on his mission) & a honey oat mask.

Hostess Catherine, Amy & me 

Wow, that was a lot. Anybody still with me?
 Like I said it was a blast to plan and celebrate Amy & Danny's impending nuptials.

Happy wedding season Amy!!
