Featured Fête: Sex and The City Bridal Shower

I can't wait for Sex and the City 2 to release this weekend! I'm ready for some cosmo's! Well actually I prefer an apple martini. :-) Are you planning to have the girls over before or after the movie? If you are looking for a bit of inspiration for a little SATC fête, check out this super cute bridal shower sent to me from Megan.
Her bridesmaids were gracious enough to throw her this fabulous shower!

Below are the shower details told by Megan.


The event began with a mystery text instructing the bride to go home and look in her closet. There she found a little black dress, hot pink accessories, and instructions to await her transportation that would arrive at 5:30pm.
At 5:30pm a taxi cab (how New York!) pulled up to take her to the shower destination, where she was met by her father, her future father-in-law, her brother, and her bridesmaids' fathers, who had been serving as valets for the evening.
From there, she was welcomed to the SATC-themed bash by her bridesmaids and their accommodating hubbies, who dressed in tuxedo tees and served food and drink at the party.


No SATC-related detail was left out:
Guests' stiletto'ed invite asked them to don the apparel of their favorite SATC character and a "costume contest" was later held, with the bride acting as judge.


Upon arrival, guests were instructed to select name tags indicating which SATC-character they most identified with: Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda
Hot pink and black were the colors of the evening
Flirtinis and cosmopolitans were the signature cocktails of the evening, served in hot pink martini glasses
Table centerpieces were comprised of black feathers, hot pink hydrangeas, and "diamonds"
A pink-and-black New York City skyline cake was baked using the Magnolia Bakery recipe and was adorned with a Manolo Blahnik and pearl necklace


The Sex & the City Movie soundtrack was playing throughout the evening
Guests received copies of the Sex & the City Movie DVD as prizes for the night's various games
The bride received a SATC-themed gift from her bridesmaids, which included a gift bag for each character... each filled with character-appropriate lingerie (think conservative and classy for Charlotte; leopard print for Samantha)
