The first was hosted by my beautiful bridal party at The Wine House in Fairfax, Virginia.
With Holly! My wonderful Maid of Honor!
My Mom, Tory, Krista, Tricia, and me! I worked with Tricia and Tory at the RNC during the last cycle and miss working with them sooo much!
Me, Holly, Kim, Virginia, Aunt Val, and Heather!
Holly, Kim & Virginia were a part of my bridal party and were kind enough to host this fun shower
The whole group! Since we are at a public location I wanted to keep the shower small and intimate. Just some of my favorite girls sharing some great wine and laughs!
I received some great gifts at my shower. Showers are a great time to branch out and give the bride gifts that are not on their registry but fit their personality! Like this beautiful crystal dish from Tiffany & Co. I currently have this dish on my coffee table with some chocolates that I brought home from Belgium.
These cookie cutters, from Crate and Barrel, were on my registry and I LOVE THEM! Emma and I put them to great use... like the egg in the heart that we made Easter morning!
These etched wine glasses with the letter "P" were a great gift that I put to use all the time!
One of the most personal gifts that I received came from my wonderful twin Kim (we have the same birthday)!!! The Sign that says "PARK Established 2011" is WONDERFUL and fits perfectly in our dinning room. I can see the sign from the kitchen as well and any time I look up it makes me smile!
Here is a photo of the sign in our dinning room! The color of the letters perfectly matches the pant that we used in that space... Like I said it is the perfect fit!
And... while I stuffed some yummy food in my mouth we played a game... two lies and a truth...
Here are some of the things that were declared about me... Can you spot the two lies.
