Shades of Purple Bridal Shower

A few weeks ago I attended a wedding event for a very special friend of mine. It was a small gathering including some of our Alpha Phi sorority sisters and involved a purple-themed cocktail/dessert party and a monogram shower for the deserving bride-to-be.

Tiffany is having her bridesmaids choose their own dresses within a palette of purples so the hostesses ran with that as the theme for the night.

The evening's signature drink was a lavendar martini, orginially discovered at another sorority sister's bridal shower last year.

I was not about to pass up the opportunity to contribute a dessert or two to the shower. I made a few A-Phi and ruffle cookies in shades of purples to add to the table alongside chocolate cupcakes with vanilla cream cheese buttercream frosting.

At the bride's request, we gave the game we played at another friend's shower in February a second go. (This is my new favorite bridal shower game!)

The dessert table was so pretty and no detail was spared.

I love the "Monograms and Martinis" shower theme and always enjoy to see what creative gifts people come up with.

Of course my uber creative friend Kelly came up with the fun idea of personalized mason jars with chalkboard tops (we may need her to do a tutorial on these for us sometime soon!)

It was such a nice celebration in honor of one of my favorite people. Looking forward to TJS becomming TJSR in August!
