The sun came out just for us and it turned out to be a beautiful day all around -- for all of our sun dresses, of course! She received a gorgeous handmaid quilt from one of the bridesmaids and we all gave her a giant Ball mason jar full of handwritten date ideas and marriage advice. It was all quite fun and adorable, and totally her style. The bachelorette:
After the cupcake tasting, we drove back toward home for a stop at the wonderful Red & White Wine Shop and Bar for, well, wine. And also some amazing almost-tapas like "pizzettas," cheese plates and assorted grilled cheese sandwiches. I had never been there before, and it was a really lovely experience.
My favorite item there was, by far, the margherita pizzetta, which was layered with fresh mozzarella, basil and sun-dried tomatoes... it was awesome. Paired with my go-to celebratory Moscato d'Asti, I couldn't have been happier.
I think everyone had a good time; I didn't go crazy since I had to work bright and early this morning. About half the party stayed out a bit later, but we didn't forget to take advantage of National Doughnut Day, which culminated in sort of accidentally ordering a dozen assorted doughnuts for two people. We had a lot to share, and there are still some left! So, happy belated Doughnut Day!
I can't wait to share the wedding -- it's going to be fabulous!
