I recently helped to plan a beachy bridal shower for one of my very best friends, who was married in Hawaii this summer. When the two other girls in the bridal party brought up the idea of a beach theme for the shower, I was immediately on board for a couple reasons. A beachy bridal shower was perfect for this particular friend, but on top of that, this theme is also relatively easy to do really well.
50 years together is a crazy milestone to celebrate with any couple, but I was lucky enough to be able to put together a party to celebrate the 50 years my own grandparents have spent together. My mom, my aunt, and I worked together to plan a surprise party for them. Keeping it a secret was not without its trials and tribulations, but in the end all the work and sneaking around was worth it. We were able to surprise them with a magical evening full of laughter, friends, and family.
