A little over 2 years ago, my sisters and friends threw me the most beautiful backyard bridal shower, so today I thought I would share some pictures and details from the day.
I remember it was beautiful sunny day, but maybe just a little bit too hot for Vancouver! I was forewarned that there was going to be a bridal shower, I just didn’t know when and where. They day of, my sister told me to get ready and that we were going to pick up our friend before we go to the bridal shower location. When we got to our friend’s house, Takdeer said we need to help her grab some things. As I go towards the house, I see a sign pointing to the shower and Jassi takes me to her backyard where all my friends were there to surprise me!
I was overwhelmed with all the love as I had never been surprised like I was that day! Almost everyone that I loved was there! From my high school friends to my amazing sisters! And as I walked around, I was amazed at how beautifully decorated the backyard was! I just had to know the story as to how they accomplished it all without me knowing anything!
Well, they worked super hard and completely transformed Jassi’s backyard into this bohemian themed, rustic backyard bridal shower. They sourced pallets/skids, brought them over to Jassi’s house and painted the tops white to create tables. They found fabric that matched the theme, made pillow covers, and filled them with other pillows and had them all around the pallet/skid table for everyone to sit on. And, they also made beautiful arrangements with fresh flowers and used baby’s breath as the finishing touch, knowing how much I love those flowers. Simply Sophie (an amazing event stylist) also happens to be my good friend brought accessories to create the overall look, which was amazing!
There were so many details all around the backyard. My favorite was this collection of pictures from my life hung using clothing pins on a piece of twine. Again, the touches of baby’s breath just tied in all the decor.
In the middle of the backyard was this tree, and they hung these beautiful lace hoops and empty frames in varying sizes and lengths that created the perfect backdrop for pictures.
Some of the furniture pieces were from Jassi’s sister, that they somehow transported to the backyard!
And of course, you can’t forget the food. Everyone made/brought different items and I think I remember everything looking and tasting delicious. They had beautiful signs labeling each item and there fresh flowers, candles, vases and little details everywhere that just made me smile.
This cheesecake was as delicious as it looked!! Oh my, I want another piece just looking at it!
For favors, they made homemade candles that were packaged beautifully in these tiny mason jars. That wasn’t all! There were even vegan S’more packages that I remember eating the same day when I got home! Who can say no to a good old S’more, a vegan one at that!
And of course there was cake! I don’t remember where the cake was from, but It was so beautiful!!
It was such a beautiful day and more importantly, I was surrounded by so much love. It was so great to have almost all my friends together for the backyard bridal shower and just hang out, talk, play games before I got married and left for Toronto! I’m so fortunate to have such amazing people in my life 🙂
