I flew home to upstate New York for the holidays this week and my sister, Mom and Aunt threw an intimate bridal shower for me.  It was so wonderful to see some of my closest family members and friends all in one room together.  My mom did the most amazing job creating the most picture-perfect shower I could ever imagine; it feel like Pinterest came to life in our house.  

She and some amazing friends made the most amazing handmade cookies and they painted wedding dresses on them–some of my favorites are pictured above.  There were delicious gluten-free cupcakes complete with cupcake boxes for guests to take their favorite cupcakes home. There was an all-pink candy station with to-go bags for guests so they could make their perfect candy bag. I loved the personalized ‘Phil and Arielle’ hershey kisses–they were so cute! Since I’m such a health food-nut, there was also tons healthy food displayed so beautifully. It was such a wonderful end to 2014 and I can’t wait to marry my best friend in a few short months. Stay tuned for my bridal shower outfit tomorrow.DSC_0002 DSC_0006 cookiesDSC_0069 DSC_0012 DSC_0013 DSC_0017 DSC_0027 DSC_0028 DSC_0100THE BRIDAL SHOWER: Gluten Free Cupcakes / Bridal Shower Design by Sandi Worona
