Last Saturday, my mom and a few of my closest friends gathered at my apartment to help me kickstart some of the many DIY projects I've planned for our wedding.
It was an amazing afternoon of shared food, laughs, and creativity. I really felt loved and embraced, and it was cool to see my favorite people (some of whom were meeting for the first time) enjoying an afternoon together.
We decorated mason-jar votives with burlap and lace, stamped place cards and little bags for the recessional lavender toss, and cut fabric flags for a big banner as well as little ribbon ones to adorn drinks and sweets.
The night before, I made up some cute s'mores kits as favors and created some prototype jars, flags, and bags. I was so excited about the party as I prepared for it, and I was not disappointed. My friends and mom are the best. Thank you so, so much, ladies. I love you!
