Shower for the Gallery Director

The talented gallery director's wedding day is rapidly approaching and I attended a shower in her honor. The invitations were her silhouette which even included her signature bun and stud earrings.

She wore Lilly Pulitzer's Jacqueline Dress.

There was plenty to drink...

...and lots to eat.

The cake was topped with Kissing Maltese Salt and Pepper Shakers.

There were also gluten free cupcakes for the bride-to-be...

...and of course there were lots of gifts.

The favor was a candy bar.

Two days after the shower I got the sweetest blue and white thank-you card in the mail.  The talented gallery director doesn't waste anytime when it comes to writing her thank-yous. I can't wait for the big day!

I love events when so much thought goes into make the honoree feel special! Those invitations are fabulous. I hope she frames one. And I know a little blogger who adores candy, so I know you enjoyed the favor :)

So cute! I love her dress and actually wore it in green to a friend of mine's rehearsal dinner in August. The candy bar is adorable and I love her thank you cards!

I like candy just as much as I like Lilly and why are sandwiches so much better without crust?
