Becca and Cam's house has become the go-to place to hold events for this group, and they again were nice enough to open their home for this party! Maureen arrived before me to start putting up all of the decor that she had been dedicating her nights to the week prior to the shower, and it turned out SO perfect. When I arrived, I started to download music for the SATC play list - all songs that were featured either in the movie or on the series. After set up, I ran to pick up the sushi we had ordered as the rest of the girls put the finishing touches on the room, and guests began to arrive at 5 pm.
Everyone looked so fantastic in their "cocktail attire"! Rachel in particular looked beyond amazing. We played a few games, ate some food, and then watched her open her themed gifts. Everyone was told to bring a gift based on an assigned SATC character, which ended up being super hilarious. This is a group that KNOWS their SATC ladies :)
Here are several pictures that I stole from other blogs and photo albums (thanks to all of the photographers)!
Congrats to you Rachel! I cannot wait for the big day!

And finally, the game - How Well do the Bride and Groom Know Each Other?
I had a fun time with this one. A few weeks prior to the shower, Greg, Ben and I went over to Rachel and Peter's for a breakfast date. Before we left, without Rachel knowing, I recorded Peter giving his answers to the game so that we could show it at the shower. It was fun to surprise Rachel with this, and I think everyone enjoyed it too :)
