My Baby Sister's all Grown Up!

This past weekend, the entire extended family descended onto Casa Mailloux for some quality family time and to shower my little sister, Whitney for her upcoming nuptials.

Whitney isn't one who is particularly interested in the kind of parties that have lots of cheesy games and definitely didn't want to partake in anything that required penis-shaped straws or blow-up dolls (I mean really, who does?) so we had a subdued affair at the house with a decadent brunch and some relaxing hand massages, catching up with friends and family. 

Soon to be Mrs. Benson {etsy}
Favors: Essie Blushing Bride, Starter Wife and Borrowed & Blue, with mini glittery nail files {Old Navy} and customized W+R 10.11.14 tags {etsy}
Pictures of the bride and groom adorned the favor table. A shabby chic box contained favorite family recipes of invited bridal shower guests...
Each guest enjoyed a mini hand massage - bliss!
The spread: Homemade quiche lorraine, baked french toast, make-your-own yogurt parfaits, watermelon, tomato and feta salad with toasted almonds and arugula, and a wide array of sweets including various cakes, banana bread, nanimo bars, cupcakes and marble fudge.
Make-your-own Mimosas, white wine and sparkling fruit-flavored beverages.
Even Galahan, the family horse made a debut!
My aunt gifted Whitney our grandmother's wedding rings - Whitney and Ryan are getting married on the same day as my grandparents' anniversary. Such a sweet gesture to acknowledge such an important day...
Mother of the groom and mother of the bride...
ASU friends...
The last of the Mailloux sisters is getting married!
My mother did a phenomenal job with the food prep (still need to get my hands on the recipes for the quiche and the most delicious baked french toast I've ever had) and I think the bride-to-be enjoyed her special day.

Less than four months to go until Ryan becomes an official member of the Mailloux clan and we couldn't be happier to add such a great guy to our growing brood ;-)
