Abigail (and I, I suppose) hosted Carolyn’s lingerie shower yesterday. Obviously (and somewhat unfortunately), I won’t be posting ALL the good photos from the par-tay since there may have been some “unmentionables” laying around…lingerie and otherwise.
(We even took a great group photo…while standing under all of Carolyn’s gifts that were currently hanging up on display. Photo fail.)
Here’s the bride, with her sparkling strawberry spritzer and personalized sash:
If you can’t read it, it says “Future Mrs. Tatlow.”
But, the stars of the show were really these babies:
Andrew’s mom found out about them on one of her morning shows and they’re featured in this cupcake book. Abigail and I (well, mostly me–the perfectionist in me took over, I think) made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and assembled them for the shower. Honestly, not all that hard to do, but getting them to stand up straight was just a bit tricky. Totally worth the effort.
And, Abigail wanted to re-create something she found on Pinterest:
A zebra-striped cake! She and I were both flying a bit blind the other day in my kitchen–due to a lack of directions and the extreme heat of baking on a hot day–but I’d say we succeeded.
The adorable host, doing what she does best:
And can ya tell the girl likes pink?! Really, they both do. We’re all already at a loss wondering what Abigail will do for her (eventual) wedding since between Carolyn as the bride and Abigail as her maid of honor, there is pink EVERYWHERE.
I wonder if Abigail has seen Steel Magnolias…(Check out the first entry under ‘Dialogue.’)
