Country Rugged: Bridal Shower Part 2

Simone had her hometown bridal shower this weekend in the quaint town of Kernville.  I hyperlinked that so you could see exactly what I'm talking about here.  It makes Sacramento feel like the big city y'all.  The venue?  Small town bed & breakfast with close friends and family.  There was champagne to drink.  Cake to eat and I was one happy MOH. Oh Simone?

She got  a lot of wonderful gifts, including lingerie and an old fire extinguisher that her fiance will die over!  Only 68 more days until the wedding!!

Woodland Chic: A Bridal Shower

I'm so thrilled that after months of planning I'm finally able to share the details of Simone's bridal shower that took place last weekend!  As I've mentioned several times before and in several places... It was a big job and I couldn't have done it without all my friends and family.  And I'm not kidding!  I had Mr. Goddard and Diana haul every precious detail up in the vehicles.  My Dad cooked the chicken for the sandwiches.  My sister took almost 200 awesome photos.  My mom prepped and came early the morning of and of course all the lovely bridesmaids we're right by my side the whole way!  We make this look easy! The bride was a huge help too!  She planned the menu for the shower which might sound a little bridezilla to those of you who don't know us, but if it had been left up to me I would have been serving pizza and chicken nuggets... Or I would have thought only about dessert because that's how I am.

The inspiration for this entire party started with Simone's absurd desire for a pet squirrel in college and the adorable invitation I stumbled upon on Etsy.  From there, woodland chic was born.

The BEST Part of Being an MOH

Is the cake tasting!

Last Thursday I went with my bestie and one of the groomsmen from the bridal party to the relatively new, Trey B Cakes in Midtown.   Open since March and located in the prime location on L street between 18th and 19th, Trey B Cakes seems to be starting off on the right foot.  I've heard many people talking and so far it's all been good.  Sacramento can be a tough crowd, not impressed easily!  Up until last week, the only thing I had a chance to try was their own version of Muddy Buddies.  Yum!

The gentleman helping us gave superior service.  Quickly greeted us and after explaining that we were waiting on one, suggested we have a seat and offered to bring us water or coffee.  He never hovered, but showed up at just the right moments when we had questions or needed milk.  Yes, milk.  You'll need it if you try the chocolate cupcake.  The frosting is a dense as fudge, but for the chocolate lover in our group - he loved it!

It saddens me to say, but I think that Simone has found her bakery for the wedding.  That means no more cake tasting for me, but I think she's found a great match.  Nothing but accommodating AND great tasting cakes!  If you're in the area and looking for a recommendation, I strongly suggest their Strawberry Shortcake cupcake.  TO DIE FOR!
