This is perhaps one of the most unconventional bridal showers I have ever done. A darling friend of mine (Kristen) was getting married and I knew I wanted to throw her shower with another friend (hi Stephie!). So we sat down and brainstormed a ton of ideas about what we wanted to do for her shower. Kristen loves books and reading. In fact, she loves them so much, that her wedding centerpieces were books and seating cards were bookmarks (so cute!) Our original plan for the shower was to do a total library theme with books and pages from books turned into awesome DIY items- but we didn’t want to take away from the wedding stuff-soooooo we decided to find out a little more…I started asking what her favorite books were, from childhood and into adulthood. What her favorite game was growing up- Monopoly- apparently those native New Yorkers are very competitive about Monopoly :)- and we went from there. Without further ado: Monogamy (for better not for worse ;)).
For the food we served bagels, french toast, bacon (it is a major food group you know), cookies with Scott and Kristen’s name and wedding date, as well as some other yummy and delicious foods.
