Hannah’s lovely bridal shower {DC wedding photographer}

My dear friend Hannah has been starring a lot on the blog lately.  In case you missed it you can find her here and here.

We have been inseparable best friends since the ripe age of 8.  Which means we went through our painfully awkward years together.  Believing with all our hearts that we were the coolest kids about town with our American Girl dolls, horse t-shirts and pony-tails.

Hannah is getting married this summer so like any good bridesmaid (yes, I get to be in a wedding instead of photographing!  fun!), I wanted to throw her a shower.  And since dress-up and tea parties (with Samantha and Addie in tow, always) were the norm for H and I, it only seemed fitting for her shower to echo that!

With the help another amazing bff and bridesmaid, Rachel the baking and decor looked lovely.

Flowers were by the incredible ladies of Sweet Root Village, and the paper products are by the amazing Always Will Design.

The Menu of carb goodness is as follows:

1. Amazing fruit salad (by Kimberly): Pineapple, Mango, Apple, Banana

2. Plain and Lemon Blueberry Scones…perfection.  Adapted from this recipe.  Served with a side of hand-whipped cream and fresh berries

3. Lemon Curd Jam Tarts: mini tart shells filled with lemon curd, baked, then topped with fresh cream and a blueberry

4. Mini-Sandwiches: Chicken Salad and Cucumber/Cream Chesse

5. Bakewell Tart: Crisp almond and raspberry filled tart.  First attempt making and tasting it…and it was ah-mazing.
