Let Love Sparkle: Tolu's Bridal Shower

A few days ago my beautiful friend, Tolu, married her best friend!! 

A month ago, I was blessed to plan and coordinate her bridal shower. So I packed my bags and headed back to New Jersey for Tolu's bridal shower. 

 

Tolu's bridal shower was held at Ashirwad Palace located in Randolph, NJ. It was the perfect venue for a shower. The theme for her shower was Let Love Sparkle. It was a mix of Kate Spade, pink, stripes and of course sparkles! 

 

My favorite part of Tolu's shower was our #hashtag advice. This was the bride's sister's idea and it was a big hit! 

 

As with any shower, we played a few games! The games included, guess the bride's age, guess how many kisses are in the jar, and guess Tolu's proposal date.

 

A few of Tolu's family members, in-laws, and sisters showered her with great advice and prayer. It brought tears not only to her eyes, but mine as well.  

 

Guests also enjoyed a delicious cocktail hour, dinner, and lots of desserts!

We ended the shower by dancing the night away. 

Guests went home with beautiful champagne favors. 

 

It was truly a wonderful shower and I am grateful to have been a part of this spectacular event!

 

Special thanks and shout out to our wonderful vendors:
