The shower was held at Caroline's aunt's home in Roswell, a suburb of Atlanta. Caroline's aunt was going for a "Bless Their Nest" theme, as we showered our friends with gifts while surrounded by garden-themed decor with little birdie details. But Caroline's aunt also happens to be from New Orleans, so there was a bit of a "bourbon" sub-theme going on. And I did not have a problem with that.
Wanna see the adorable details? Of course you do!
How gorgeous is that?! This lovely spread included shrimp cocktail, beef tenderloin sandwiches, honeybaked ham sandwiches, and deviled eggs. Everything was delicious!
The foyer featured a wishing tree so that guests could leave marriage advice and what not. I'm pretty sure we just wrote something inappropriate about drinking.
After the nearlyweds opened their gifts, it was time for dessert, which included petit fours, bourbon brownies, and Mexican wedding cookies.
One of my favorite parts of the day was when Caroline's aunt prepared Café Brulot, a New Orleans tradition involving coffee, bourbon, and a match. I have to say, I have been to quite a few showers and I have never seen anything en flambe! This was a very exciting first for me.
Once the bowl of liquor and spices was ignited, Caroline's aunt scooped the flaming mixture into demitasses full of coffee.
And here we are with the happy couple!
I love how we're coincidentally situated in height order. We absolutely love these guys, and can't wait to see them get married in just three months!
