Bhudda Fountain Decor Flating Pink Chrysanthemums

Last Saturday we arrived in the Philips Ranch area for Kimberli’s bridal shower.  The shower took place at her mom’s place, where Kimberli and her family and friends transformed the backyard into a vibrant and cozy gathering space, anchored with the theme: “Eat, Pray, Love.”  (And that’s what it says on the cake too! Scroll down and you shall see, it’s a cute one! :)  There were a lot of details: paper lanterns hanging down from the patio, a Buddha fountain with floating chrysanthemums, Moroccan style candle lantern centerpieces adorned with flowers around the bases, and even the buffet table was lined with fresh fruits and produces.  Gotta love details like these!

One by one, the guests started to show up.  Hugs were exchanged, food and drinks shared, and love and laughter filled the air.  Following the feast, guests were divided into 4 teams for a game – to create a bridal dress with only rolls of toilet tissues and paper clips.  What a fun idea!  Originally we thought Kimberli had the most beautiful white dress on that day; however, after seeing all the “Haute-Couture ” creations that the ladies came up with… we weren’t quite sure anymore! :p

Thanks Kimberli! We really enjoyed spending such a delightful afternoon with you, your family, and all the lovely ladies!

Kimberli got a headpiece to match her dress.
Love how adding a little bit of texture enriches the emotion and tone of this image:
