Bride-to-be Meehan’s shower was a celebration of her sunny personality. Yellow was used to great effect in subtle ways: everywhere from a "here comes the bride" chalk scrawling to the strings on whimsical paper bells, suspended above the tablescape.
"I loved the dessert bar since it was so colorful and truly a piece of eye candy. A close second was the hand-stamped 'true love' wooden ice cream spoons," revealed the bride’s mother, Julia. Although Meehan knew when the shower would take place, she was purposefully kept in the dark about all of the elements that were being brought together.
The warmth and meaning of the day made an impression on both the bride and her proud mom: "My favorite part was watching all of the guests in attendance enjoy the details of the table, the food, and being made to feel special, as Meehan was treated. That is always truly the best part of any party or gathering."
