Echito is getting married – and Meade Design Group wanted to send her into married life with a fabulous bridal shower party! After all, she does deserve it, she always leaves comments on my blog (lol)
The theme (of course,) was pinks and corals presented in an elegant manner with napkins, floral arrangements and yummy yummy desserts.
We enjoyed good company, tasty cocktails, some silly and naughty games (such as pin the junk on the hunk, a toilet paper wedding dress contest and Toilet Paper and Stick – don’t ask) and of course a traditional Mexican meal lovingly prepared by moi .
The menu was:
- Avocado cream soup with Tequila and Watermelon.
- Mandarin and Blackberry on Spring Greens with Mango and Cilantro Dressing and Caramelized Pecans.
- Agnolotti in Chiplote and Gouda Sauce.
- Saltspring Island Goat Cheese & Port Salut Cheese Platter.
- OOh La La Cupcakes and Chocolate Dipped Strawberries.
- A delicious Naughty Cake specially made for the occasion.
Please enjoy the pictures below of the safe-for-blog festivities that went into the wee hours!
Coral floral arrangements with a mix of gerberas and roses by local talent Tara McHugh perfectly adorned our table set for 12.
Delicious cupcakes from OOh La La in “Just Vanilla” with pink sprinkles and “Pink Ballerina” with pink icing to fit our theme.
Another one of Tara’s beautiful arrangements complimented our Asian cabinet and Fornasetti plates.
The re-vamped entrance with a plum blossom branch right from Tara’s own front yard.
Each guest was welcomed with a freesia corsage on their place setting to wear for the event.
I bugged innocent Echito for weeks that I will get her a real bubble butt stripper for the event. Even after going to the most dark places in Victoria and was almost successful, I was unable to obtain one. So, we presented her with this stripper themed cake from Passion for Cakes - Yum! and of course we had to brand the cake (lol) Echito was relieved and enjoyed the cake more than she thought she would have enjoyed the stripper!
Echito serving up the naughty cake – raspberry with vanilla frosting, yum! (Of course she had to eat the bubble-bum piece all to herself!) You can also see another special decoration in the shot - the horse mural in the background was given a pink unicorn horn for the occasion to promote fertility and good will in the couples futures.
Here I am as the bartender extraordinaire – mixing yummy pink drinks for the event such as the “Silk Stocking” and Raspberry Champagne Cocktails which the ladies (including Jeff and myself ) enjoyed. Love is in the details I even wore a pink shirt for Echito.
New sexy mama Sarita had to leave early to feed Sadie, but it was great she was able to come and celebrate with us.
The self-proclaimed “Team Experience” (Bobbie, Tanis, and Echo’s mom Sharon) working on their dress design for the toilet paper bride contest. Their final design? “The Reverse Mullet”; a mini-dress “party in the front” and elegant train for “business in the back”.
The final designs modelled by (from left to right) LindsO, Courtney and Tanis.
The final event of the evening was the passing of the “Bride-to-Be” tiara from Echito to Christina, who will be getting married in September.
Overall, a fabulous evening was had by all – best of luck to Echo and Nic on their wedding on May 16th!
