a bridal shower brunch

yesterday i threw a bridal shower with these incredibly lovely girls: IMG_2405
kelly and melinda are seriously among the very classiest and and elengentest of women in the universe. it was so fun to scheme up a little soiree with them (about 90% of this loveliness is kelly and melinda’s doing … but i helped!).
we had a build-your-own-parfait bar, tea sandwiches, a cheese board, and the darlingest mini wedding cakes!

the shower was to celebrate the upcoming wedding of this dear bride-to-be:
i first met katie when i lived in san francisco, and when i moved from the city to palo alto just a few months after she did, we became roommates. i think katie is literally the sweetest person i have ever met in my entire life. truly. she’s just an absolute treasure of a girl. she’s also probably the girliest girl i’ve ever met, which made for a very pink and princessy party! katie moved to dc many months ago, so we have been missing her around these parts, and it was so fun to gather her girlfriends for a shower of treats and gifts and wedding excitement.

melinda asked katie’s fiancĂ© to film himself answering some questions about their love story. it was so fun to get to know his personality a little, since most of us had never met him. his video was pretty entertaining!
a few things well worth celebrating:  the sweet bonds of good girlfriends, pretty lingerie, really cute and yummy food, and the miracle of true love.
