Lola's orange and pink shower

Bursts of pink and orange, guests were requested to kindly turn out in white attire...if you would remember I showed you the preview of a sweet shower to remember a couple weeks ago. Now I bring you the full story! I thought I was blown away by the thought, panache, class and creativity that went into this bridal shower (not that I expected anything less of a fashionista like the bride to be...) till I heard that from the sweet candy bar to the place settings to the gorge centerpieces, the bride did all by hand! Yeah baby, DIY!!

Wow. So Lolita dear, I think someone might have missed her calling and should just segue into signature events lol. She would be super fab. The attention to every detail was just wonderful.

Ms. Funmi Ajao, CEO of Impressive Events left no stone unturned in making sure the orange and pink theme was recurrent throughout the shower. From the games on orange paper to the orange and pink signature drink, to the gifts for participants she did an amazing job keeping everyone entertained. Kudos to maid of honor extraordinaire, Ms. Debbie (if all MOHs were like you, there would be NO bridezillas in the world lol. Honestly!) who worked tirelessly with the bride to help realize her vision for the event (and the wedding day!). Thanks also to bridesmaid Oyinade for helping pull off this lovely affair.

The bride herself was bedecked in orange and fuschia/dark pink (at the shower there was the argument on the exact color to call those fab shoes!) and of course her bling. The food was umm ummm goood! It was such a fun affair, complete with games and the vibe of company that would make you not want to leave! This past weekend was the wedding event and my can I wait to tell that story on here!

Would like to wish Lola every congratulations and every blessing that accompanies marriage! Started on a great note and will continue forever in Jesus name! AMEN!

sugar overload...
