Bridal Party Brunch

The day before heather's INCREDIBLE wedding, my mom and I hosted a bridal party brunch. 
Weddings go so quickly and it was nice to just be able to slow down enough to enjoy each other's company.
I made sure to incorporate all of the things Heather adores.
Milk glass, mustard, balloons, succulents, tea, tea cups, pretty flowers.  
They were all in attendance.  
So were all of her favorite women!
We had it at The Londoner in Downtown Bradenton.
They went above and beyond for us - super accommodating, friendly, and the food & tea- delicious.
