This past weekend I got to celebrate two of my hometown friends at the loveliest of bridal showers. Shower no.1 honored our gal Cristina and was hosted by one of the maids of honor, Mia, along with her sweet mom and sister at their gorgeous seaside home in Shell Beach, CA.
DIY touches added to the rustic coastal feel: an abundance of olive branches for our Italian bride-to-be, invitations designed by yours truly, lemon bars made with love by bridesmaid Emily, and a cake decorated with fresh flowers by the hostess herself [guests were delighted to learn that hidden underneath its buttercream frosting was a pink champagne cake from the bakery at Madonna Inn].
An intimate gathering of friends and family atop cliffs overlooking the ocean. Is there anything better?
