My little brother gets hitched in less than 3 weeks. I am so excited that he’s marrying Kiersten (Peaches) and I can’t wait to have another sister-in-law. This past weekend I ventured to Columbia for Kiersten’s “last fling before the ring.” We had an absolute blast and I can’t wait to keep laughing with her for years to come.
Isn’t that just the cutest sign? Before we headed out for the evening, we threw Kiersten a lingerie shower.
We had quite the spread of nibbles! Various cheeses from Trader Joes including the beloved blueberry goat cheese. Jamie made a delicious fruit dip and bought super cute cupcakes from a local bakery. I also made a favorite 3-ingredient dip that I’ve made many times before. It’s simple – 8 ounces whipped cream cheese, 8 ounces sour cream, 8 ounces pepper jelly. Mix until smooth and serve with carrots and corn chips. Addicting!
And then we had a drink station. Wine is a given. But I also made a Coastal Skies cocktail. We tried using Kiersten’s color scheme and this drink matched perfectly.
Coastal Skies (recipe was tripled)
- 3 cups coconut rum
- 2 cups blue Curacao (recipe called for 3)
- 1 1 /2 cups amaretto
- 2 cups pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup lime juice (could have used more, didn’t have enough limes)
It was so fun meeting some of Kiersten’s friends and getting to know Kiersten’s sister more. I can’t wait for the biggest reunion of them all – the wedding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cheers to Kiersten and Taylor!!!!!
