Cucumber, cilantro & pineapple juice
Last Sunday was my bridal shower, which was organized by my mom and my best girlfriends. It was such an incredible day that I’m still on cloud nine! I think what touched me the most was to see how much my friends know and understand me..
We kicked off the day with a toilet-paper bridal gown contest—we recycled the toilet paper, don’t worry—which was hilarious and pretty impressive, I have to admit. My friends split up into 4 groups to create their masterpieces and paraded around in their dresses. I especially enjoyed what my friend Anaïs—a self-proclaimed “Lady Caca”—was wearing.
Next, my friends gave me a box full of poems they wrote for me anonymously. I had to read them out loud, one by one, and guess who wrote which. I laughed, I cried, and I guessed most of them right.
To make a long story short, we played a bunch of similar games in the afternoon, after which we welcomed back our men (including Alex) and children for dinner. We ended with a beanbag toss tournament (not my forte), where my mom showed us who’s boss.
It was amazing!
Anyway, I am writing all of this stuff down because I couldn’t bear to keep all my friends’ creative ideas to myself. Please feel free to use them, and have fun doing so!
Ultimately, when I posted a picture of my bridal shower on Facebook, I received a lot of questions about the different juices on the table. I decided to share a recipe that my mom makes regularly and that is always a huge hit.
