If you know my sister, then you know she has an insane amount of talent. Not only does she have this innate ability for artistry and music (I’ve been pushing her to open her own Etsy story for YEARS), she’s also a top-notch party planner. Like, leg-en-dary.
She definitely enjoys it, but I don’t think it’s a future career for her. Part of the fun of doing something is doing it for fun, you know? I just happen to be her sister, and get to benefit from it all;).
Melissa themed the shower around “A Green Fairytale”, complete with all the prince and princess elements you could imagine. She had flower crowns for all the ladies to wear, and gold crowns for the gents. The room was filled with flowers and greenery, making it seem like a little magical world all of its own! She used two different backdrops, one being this one, to help really create the fairytale feel.
My sister-in-law, Jenna, and our dear friend Dawn helped to cater the food. Jen is an AMAZING cook, so that was definitely a treat! There was a mom-osa bar and a “princess is brewing” bar for the guests to enjoy, in addition to cupcakes from Ugga Mugga Bakery in Blowing Rock.
There are LOADS of pictures I could share, but I tried to keep it to just the details! We were certainly blessed with so much love, and it just makes me all the more excited to have her come!
