Tegan's Bridal Shower

Saturday was Tegan's Bridal Shower.  I had been working on the planning for this shower for at least a month.  I really wanted the shower to reflect Tegan's style.  Did I mention Tegan is gluten intolerant?  Oh yeah... she is.  So I also had to plan an entirely gluten-free menu.  (I didn't have to, but I thought it was weird if the guest of honor couldn't eat some of the food.)

That is a gluten-free cheesecake.  I made it using THIS recipe and it was definitely a hit.  I would HIGHLY recommend that recipe if you are looking to make a gluten-free cheesecake.

I made the banner and the garland.  

I made a similar banner for Joanna's baby shower with Braxton's name on it.  If you are interested in purchasing a garland or a banner similar to these, please let me know.  I am thinking about starting a little side business for my craft projects.

The lovely Bride-to-Be 

Tegan and Katie (best friends from high school.  Katie and I were roomates for a little while.  Katie and Joanna were roomates for a while.  It is just one big circle of friendship I guess.)

The shower was at Tegan's Mom's House, in their backyard.  We had it there so it was closer to the majority of the guests (Tegan and I live about 45 miles away from each other).  They have THE NICEST backyard.  It was perfect.  It was shaded and had a nice big patio.  Perfect weather.  I don't think it could have gone better.

I could not have done it without Joanna and Phil.  Seriously.  Joanna has never really liked to cook (her husband is an AMAZING cook).  But I never knew that she was super speedy with a knife.  She is so quick.  And Phil did pretty much ALL of the food shopping for me and he helped me with the cheesecakes.  And thank you to everyone that helped me set-up and clean-up.

It was a super fun shower.  Everyone seemed to mingle well together.

And I never want to do a shower by myself again (I said that after Joanna's shower too).

Love, Mrs. Janney
