Knoxville Shower

Do you ever have those posts that you want to be sooooo perfect that you keep putting them off because you want to make sure and take enough time so it's just the way you want?  Well, this is one of those posts!

I was so excited about my very first, way more excited than I should have been!  And it was everything I expected it to be!  It was hosted by one of my best friends and bridesmaids, Andi.  She took so much time to make sure everything was exactly right and there's no possible way it could have been more perfect!  Warning:  you are about to experience picture overload!!!!!

Here is all of the decorations and decor:
The drink and cake table

Cake pops!  These were chocolate flavored.

Red velvet cake and cupcakes and wedding cake cupcakes (these things were to DIE for)!

More cake pops!  Some of these were chocolate and some where yellow cake flavored

The food table!

Such a beautiful centerpiece!  Andi asked so many questions about my colors, etc, and I had no idea she was going to make everything coordinate so perfectly!

Yummy veggies and fruit!

Centerpieces at each of the guest tables...again, sooooo pretty!
Next up, a few pics of the guests and me:
Me with my mama!

With sister and sweet MOH!

Me with the hostess, Andi!

Laura with my cousin, Kelley!

Sweet Kennedy made an appearance at the shower.

Aunt Carole and my cousin Kelley!
Just one more picture of the youngest guest at the shower!  She's so flippin' adorable!
Next opening!
Opening my first gift...and SOOOO excited!

Showing off my new towels!  

Laura fulfilling her MOH duties by recording all of my gifts in the notebook my mom bought me!

I'm cracking up in this pic because my cousin, Kelley, gave Zoey a gift and wrote the cutest poem to go along with it!

The only gift I didn't open at the shower!  It was too beautiful and I thought it needed to come back to Nashville in one piece!
It was truly a wonderful day!  I can't possibly imagine it being any more perfect!  The one thing that Andi did that made it so personal and sweet is that she took my picture with every guest at the shower.  Then she had each guest sign a photo album and write words of advice to Patrick and me.  She printed all of the pictures, put them in the photo album with the corresponding entry and sent the album to me the next week.  Here are a few pics of the album:
The front of the photo album!

A copy of the beautiful invitation is mounted on the first page! 
A sampling of the type of words some of my guests wrote to Patrick and me.

So excited to get to do all of this over again this weekend as Kathleen, Alysia, and Anna Catherine throw me a shower for all of my Nashville friends!  Can't wait!!!!!
