Purple lace wedding shower.

Last week I had the pleasure of co-hosting a wedding shower for our dear friend Maddy heading back to Minnesota soon to tie the knot.

We went with Minted invitations: vintage corset by palm papers. Lauren’s invitation provided all the inspiration we needed for the shower: purple, ribbon, and lingerie!

Roasted eggplant, tea sandwiches, and watermelon, crab, feta salad were on the menu.

Along with homemade blueberry scones, lemon-lavender muffins, strawberry bread, cucumber, egg salad and chicken salad sandwiches–my personal highlight. Lindsay made them (Joy of Cooking: 2 cups diced cooked chicken (I usually poach the chicken with celery, carrots, onion and then pull into shreds), 1 cup diced celery, 1 cup halved seedless grapes), 1/4 cup chopped (toasted or not) walnuts or pecans. Mix with 1/2 cup light mayo and salt and pepper.)

And cake and brownies, of course.

The cake was also wrapped up in lace… which was very supportive and also pretty. I love helping a bride get used to her new monogram!

The cake had a surprise.

We sprinkled lavender all over the tables.

The ribbon wall was really fun. We got all of the ribbons in Sham Shui Po.

Favors were little sachets we found for very cheap filled with lavender.

Our friend K.C. painstakingly printed and cut out the messaging letters for a bold wall display.

Cocktails were bubbles with lavender syrup.

Caitlin happily played bartender.

Love the name of this shop… the British pronounce it Buhhbees.

We played one game where Maddy had to guess a list of questions given to Justin and another where she had to guess who gave her what lingerie.

She was a good sport and we all had a good laugh over how many black ensembles there were as her favorite color is black.

And all the guests!
