Ashley’s Bridal Shower–January 4, 2014


I had so much décor for Ashley’s bridal shower! We got there around 10 am to set up even though the shower started 1 pm. These awesome ladies helped me set up the whole event.

We used a private room at Delmonico and the room looked awesome.DSC_0001

I feel like the room looks like a birdcage so it went perfectly with the theme!DSC_0002

The cake was adorable and delicious! It was made in Lafayette and brought in by Darelle.DSC_0012

The birdhouses looked awesome! The bottles looked awesome! We did awesome. Smile


One neat item used was the cage in the center of this table (below). This cage was used in the long extinct restaurant Turci’s that was owned my our great grandparents. They were opera singers from Italy that came to New Orleans to perform. After some time they opened Turci’s and served authentic Italian in New Orleans. They had an opera singing parrot that lived in that cage. It now hangs in my house in honor of my great grandparents. DSC_0020DSC_0022

Another special item on display was a bridal centerpiece that was used at our mother’s bridal shower also at mine!DSC_0024

Once the room was set, we all got dressed and hung out in the bar until the party officially started. DSC_0037DSC_0035

Finally it was time to let Ashley see the room!DSC_0043DSC_0044DSC_0046DSC_0048DSC_0049DSC_0050

I think it is what she wanted and she was pleased!

Ashley, I hope you had a blast! I sure did. Sadly, no. I can’t throw you a shower every weekend, but I would if I could. :)DSC_0425

I love you very much and you deserved all the work we put into this shower.

Love and Hugs, Lizzie
