We had Thao’s Bridal Shower last weekend! Uh. It was so much fun.
All the planning was worth it because it was one of my absolute favorite parties that I have ever been to.
Thao didn’t ask for much for her shower. She was easy to please. She wanted:
a. Chicken wings… I failed and didn’t get them
b. to not open gifts in front of people… I failed and made her. Then she cried.
c. to have a backdrop photobooth with a chalkboard of some sort… now that, I can do.
But how? A few days before her party, I called to tell her that I was sorry, but I couldn’t feasibly pull of a temporary chalkboard wall. A sheet of plywood would be too heavy and Bf was out of town, so he couldn’t help carry it. I was at a loss.
Then, I remember that I have a new door in the scary shed in my backyard. I took that sucker out, painted it with chalkboard paint and a party photobooth backdrop was almost complete.
I threw in some wedding bells, pink balloons, and a red plastic table cloth and we were set.
Thao was thrilled. Thank gawd.
Here are some of the pictures from that evening… also known as one-of-the-most-fun-showers-I-have-ever-been-to.

The countdown to the wedding is coming in to a close… there is not too much time left, so what I better way than getting a bunch of ladies together to celebrate a friend, sister, pal, daughter.
