I’m kind of a grandma… (couch, movie, my cat, oh yeah and my husband is the perfect night in). But the one time a year that I stay out late was this past weekend!

It was all for a good reason. My sweet Holly is getting married in June!!! Get the title??? Holly-day… Holiday!

We celebrated with a bridal shower and bachelorette party all on Saturday night. Whew, and we made it through the day. No cat fights, no injuries, and lots of memories (few that Holly can recall, winky face).

Holly is an avid baker. The theme of her shower was “Love is Sweet” to align with her skills. We had the girls play some games, and winners got baking items (like cookie cutters, tea mugs, baking utensils). We also gave away gift baggies with cookies, tea, and honey sticks. Her colors are teal and purple so ultimately those were the colors of the shower decor too!


Stay tuned for a tassel garland DIY soon!

Drumroll please… This was the highlight of the party – the food!


Yup, that’s a donut tree in the middle from Holly’s favorite donut shop.

A few featured items from the party ^^^ 

What kinds of food have you seen served at a bridal shower? Anything noteworthy?

Sugar CookiesOne of the games was to decorate these cookies – same cookie cutter but it was used as two different shapes (see below)


Then we went home, cleaned up, and headed to the city for the bachelorette!

We took a small ferry to Forbes Island for dinner with a gorgeous view of the Bay and Alcatraz

And the night ended with debauchery, ah-tehehe. Bottle service at Infusion Lounge!

Server: “What kind of alcohol do you want?”
Holly: “Tequila!!!”

You can assume how the night ended!

Holly, I hope you had a fantastic day filled with love and xoxo. Can’t wait for the wedding!!!
