Gilded Girly Bridal Shower
My bestie/tweedle, Jolie, got married in somewhat of a hurry this past year (nothing untoward I promise you... more like a romantic elopement all planned by her hubby!) and while I was able to be present on her special day as a bridesmaid, I was a little bummed we didn't get to do all the fun pre-wedding partying that I had done with many other friends. Also, she's had it rough lately and I knew some girly time and gift giving would make her smile so I decided to throw her a post-wedding bridal shower!

|Pink and gold all the way for my girly girl!|
No party for Jolie would be without plenty of booze of course, so we had a mimosa bar and homemade sangria for everyone to sip.
Following the food we played just one little "quiz" game, then dove into the delicious dessert/sundae station!
|Almost all the food was gluten free, since J can't have the stuff|
|Mmmmm caramel sauce....|
For favors, we threw together little jars of rosemary salt (Jolie LOVES salt - like will lick the rim of a margarita before drinking it) and attached a yummy cocktail recipe, a Salty Dog.
