My beautiful sister in law, Shara, is getting married next month. Being her matron of honor alongside her best friend, Heather, we had the opportunity to host her bridal shower last week.  If you didn’t know, I did online school for event planning and design and am a certified event planner. Party planning and designing events is where my heart is at. Once Derek and I decide to settle down a little more, owning my own event venue/ lodge is the ultimate goal, and what I’ll be working towards. Since I am currently not doing events full time at the moment,  I really enjoyed planning and hosting this shower for her.29315023_1583531175033299_740001514818371584_n29342235_1583531598366590_4565571920937877504_nSince Heather and I had a budget, we decided to keep things very simple, but still looking classy. Bridal showers should never look cheap, but I will tell you a secret, you can get away with doing them for very cheap. Especially if you like DIY projects. We took a few trips to Target and Michael’s crafts. And with a can of spray paint, a few decor pieces from the dollar store, a couple items borrowed from friends and family, and tables and chairs from my grandpa’s business, we had a simple, but beautiful bridal shower brunch.

We also had a few games for the ladies to play, including this DIY ring toss that Heather made.29387115_1583531601699923_7880821734650150912_n29339585_1583531588366591_8985818920426405888_nHere’s to the little celebrations that leave lasting impressions, here’s to very happy days, and here’s to finding our passions. One day I know that I will party plan and design events for  living, but for now I will enjoy doing it every once in a while for my nearest and dearest and soak in every minute I get doing so.              29342499_1583531651699918_1561021235419152384_n  29356122_1583531165033300_1620300786355404800_nOnto the next adventure, Wren
