I didn’t get a lot of good pictures of the girls because of camera issues. And unfortunately this is the only one I got of the bride.
I think everyone would agree that Aaliyah was the cutest party guest!
One of the games was a mad libs game that gave Ali some bridal advice.
We also played ‘Who Has the Groom’, which is more of a door prize than an actual game. I cut out tuxedos and various celebrity heads (one was the groom’s head) and tucked them into envelopes. Whoever got the groom won the prize! It was pretty funny to see who opened what celebrity. I got Bob Barker and, I have to admit, I wasn’t totally disappointed!
The last game was Staches and Tiaras. I asked the bride and groom the same 20 questions each, then read the questions out loud to the party guests and picked one of the answers. If they thought it was the bride’s answer, they put the tiara to their head. If they thought it was the groom’s answer, they put up the stache. This was a fun one too!
I love these striped paper straws. I made a lemon iced tea and this pomegranate soda, which was so good.
Food! We did a crostini bar with hummus, mango chutney, bruschetta, gruyere, and baked goat cheese, skewers with mango, bocconcini, and prosciutto, a yummy fruit and cookie tray with a lime cream cheese ball, and a lemon and berry trifle that I will most definitely make again. These vases were hung on the deck outside… I bought it when I saw it at Marden’s!
Tissue paper flowers were hung outside and inside, in pink, orange, white, and yellow.
Insert picture of pretty hanging flower basket here (for no good reason other than I think it’s pretty). And another shot of the tissue paper flowers hung around the food inside.
I was honored to host this party for my sweet sister and had so much fun getting ready for it and hosting it.
