Becca's Shower Invitation


I’m am very happy to announce the upcoming nuptials for Becca from It’s Yummi! to Brian Donovan this Thursday the 31st of October 2013.  To celebrate Kelley from Miss Information and I are throwing Becca a virtual bridal shower!  We gathered together 10 of Becca’s blogging friends to share fall and Halloween inspired crafts and food that would be perfect to help any fall bride celebrate.

10 Fall Wedding Shower Ideas

It’s become a big trend at weddings to have a signature cocktail.  I wanted to create a special drink for Becca that would be perfect for the fall/winter season and be an all around crowd pleaser.  I almost called this cocktail the “Holy Matrimony” for the occasion, but figured a more seasonal name would be more indicative of the flavors.  This cocktail is light, fresh tasting, and full of fall flavors and aromas.  It’s dangerously easy to drink and you can control the alcohol taste by adding extra soda water.
