We all spend so much time with our coworkers, so it's only right that you have some fun during the day.
In our office, we sometimes have too much fun, but when you become good friends with your coworkers, it's bound to happen.
Last week, we were able to celebrate our friends Angela & Joe's pending nuptuals (they got married this past Saturday - yay!) with a combined work bride/groom shower. Yes, Ang & Joe both work in our office. In fact, Joe works on my team and Ang works on my sister's team.
Ang is my baking buddy - she worked at a bakery during college, and makes crazy amazing cakes like this one that she did for another coworker's baby shower. A.MAY.ZING. We always seem to find ourselves chatting about opening a bakery one day.
Oh, to dream.
My sister was in charge of most everything, but a bunch of us chipped in to help out with decorations and baking and buying gifts.
I put my Cricut to work, and made this banner for the event --
Her colors were champagne and black, so I did a cream-ish color with the black background and lettering.
As for baking, I made these little maple cakelettes ---
I didn't make these gluten free (I decided to back off the baked goods...I'd inhaled an entire orange spice pumpkin loaf earlier in the week....), but they were gone in no time, so I'm assuming they were fabulous :-)
Erin brought in these cupcakes for the event --
Since we were doing a combo bride/groom shower, we had to have a few things that were more manly, so my sister made these a-freaking-dorable cupcakes ---
Here's the dessert table in all its glory -
There were also pumpkin oreo bites which somehow didn't make it into the picture, but they also looked devine. I'm obsessed with pumpkin this time of year, so I was drooling all over the place when they walked into the door.
No shower is complete without gifts! We had a table set up with all the gifts, wrapped all nice and pretty from Bed Bath and Beyond for them both to open --
It was a team effort, led by my sis & Erin. We had a great time, and Ang & Joe were extremely grateful.
Now they're in Hawaii, relaxing and drinking passion fruit smoothies. Heavy on the rum. And I'm totally jealous.
Ang & Joe - love you guys - I hope your honeymoon is off to a fantastic start! Enjoy every second :-)
Much love ~~~
