Linda plans parties for a living at Lumiani Events, but this time she was the guest of honor in a charming backyard shower based on the song "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music. "I love hearts, desserts, and anything else under the sun that screams 'girly'!" said Linda. "One thing that was extra special was they had a chef come and make lunch. The menu consisted of—you guessed it—my favorite sweet and savory foods."
In a twist on the classic clothespin game, each guest received a ring pop and had to forfeit it if they said the word "Linda."The bride’s future sister-in-law was a master!
The free-spirited décor complemented the easygoing vibe, with flowers that looked like they were plucked straight from a garden and refreshing drinks displayed in glass canisters. From photographer Caroline Tran: "You see those vintage chairs and benches? They were all made by Linda’s fiancé for their wedding ceremony. What a keeper, right?"
