"If you want a thing well done, do it yourself."

This past Sautrday my best friend Ashley hosted a bridal shower for me. She and her Mom planned the entire thing without me knowing any of the details. I was so happy when I came in and saw the room (it was held at a cute, local cafe).. They did an awesome job and I feel like I cannot thank them enough. :)
 
Here are the pictures from the day..
 
Would you believe me if I told you that Tracy (Ashley's Mom) made these?? 'Cause she did! Amazing..


 
The other cake (store bought).
 
Our wedding colors are pink and orange so that was the theme for the shower. :)
 
 
 The flowers were SO pretty.. I brought some home with me. :)

Ashley got me this tiara/veil to wear for the shower. Lauren had to test it out for me. ;)
