Bridal Shower...I'm terrible at surprises

I so do love surprises.

However, I still manage to find out all the little details just-so-I-know... Oh well. There's bound to be surprises (especially during the Bachelorette party) that I would never anticipate happening.

So here's the best detail I figured out about the Bridal Shower.

Krissypoo Bakes4U Bakery (name pending) is catering the Cake (CUPCAKES)

Mexican Hot Chocolate
And either Vanilla Honey Lavender OR Vanilla Chai of some sort?

Here's some of Her AMAZING work. Can you believe she doesn't have a shop?

It will be in a private room for brunch at a nicer restaurant (I know the name but I don't want my blog readers to come find me, I love you all but there just isn't room)

Also, for the reception we are thinking to code tables rather than by "table 6" or what have you, as species of trees (yay!) or something. I like the botanical/scientific drawing style and they will be in frames at the tables. sort of images like these:

And finally, I think if I can I will have the string quartet play this song after our vows or something: (it's the song that plays at the end of Pride and Prejudice as Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy walk toward eachother in recognition at the end! eeeeee happy!)

Modern and ShabbyChic Touches: Reception

I've got some more goodies to share!

When I get to the Art Center (a very modern, clean building) I will no longer be wearing my super-long fancy veil for the dance etc, but instead a hassle-free short and fabulous birdcage veil!
I'm making it myself, of course.

Also, my mom found this FABULOUS way to assign tables...a vintage frame window

And when you're seated, waiting for you is a way to feed your own lovebirds at home!?

More to come!

All the best,

Our last night in Athens, Greece

Links to the Hotel Websites, in order of stay.

3 Nights in Athens

My last post about accommodations for awhile, I think.

Also, did I mention the tubs are GOLD??
Holy Tiles Batman!

Petinos Beach

Located on the island of Mykonos.

The Island of Santorini

Lovely. Just, Lovely.

And this my friends, is why we chose Greece. (Athens)

The next few blogs will all just be gratuitous photos of the ACTUAL places Russ and I will be staying in Greece.

Starting with Athens (3 nights, + one night before flight home)

Cake, and more

Our cake will be similar, but the colors will be much less fall-like, green leaves and acorns with blue flowers. The main color is ivory/tan and the tiers (4) will be square!

It's hip to be square!

Veil is something like this: (no dress images, that remains a surprise, especially because Russ reads this :] )

Something like this for the 2-yr-old flower girl (she won't be carrying the flower ball with the rings--too young!)
