Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

04.11.2015: Showers of Happiness Round 2!

Hello, dolls! Hello, APRIL!! Aaah our anniversary month ❤ I can’t believe that A and I got married last year… LAST YEAR! So I will definitely spend each day this month reminiscing about our wedding and all the events that happened when we were all in the Philippines. One of which, my bridal shower!! I am very blessed because I got to have 2 bridal showers on both sides of the world.

My Mom and Chella did not have a lot of time to plan my bridal shower (I wasn’t really being cooperative at first because I was getting stressed about the wedding! haha). I don’t know how they did it, but it was one of the sweetest days in my life.

So I think by now most of you know that I go crazy for macarons and afternoon tea is one of the things that A and I love doing together. ..

I’ve always dreamed of having an afternoon tea slash macaron party thrown for me. ❤

I get kilig when A takes a picture of me without me asking him. #MaarteMoment

Mrs. Graham was the perfect venue for my bridal shower in Manila.
The owner allowed us to rent the private room that they use for heir music classes. The room was cozy and the decorations were perfect for my bridal shower.

Mama picked the cutest giveaways perfect for the theme of the party.

This melted my heart ❤

My parents realized that they forgot to buy/print labels for the giveaways. My Dad, being the hero that he is went to a print shop and had this printed. The label was all him..making it more special for me ❤

Mrs. Graham did a really great job in making the room look pretty for us

Snack attack

Mrs. Graham’s provided the snacks, desserts, and drinks for the party.

They do not really serve food so they allowed us to bring some.

Since A is a gazillion miles away from home (Baltimore) he did not really have anyone to hangout with. My brothers had to go to school and we did not want him to just stay at home and play the “stare game” with my Dad. He was cool during the party, it’s as if he was not there at all and the ladies loved him so I did not mind having him around haha.

Everyone brought presents for A and I…mostly for me ha! But I really did not expect it! We did not have a registry in the Philippines and we informed everyone pretty much a week before the bridal shower (or maybe even less than that!).about the party.

One of the activities during the bridal shower was the memory game — one of my favorite games ever because I love reminiscing!

It was funny to read what the girls wrote in front of Mama and Lola because you know…I am a little silly and I did some crazy stuff before lol
