Good morning, friends! I hope you're all loving this cool weather as much as I am! Even with the rain this weekend, I've been bundled up happily every day (also how gorgeous was yesterday??). Through the rain on Saturday, a few friends and family and I made our way to Palma in the West Village for my bridal shower. It was an awesome afternoon, despite the rain.
My friend Emily had her 30th birthday here, so when my sister and I were narrowing down spots for the brunch, this was on our short list. Out of all the restaurants my sister reached out to, she said Palma was the most responsive, so in the end we went with them!
How magical is their private room? It's in a sort of carriage house in the back of the restaurant; we felt transported to someone's country house in England or something. So pretty!
For whatever reason, I had been obsessed with the idea of royal icing cookies as escort cards, and scoured NYC for the perfect match. I ended up ordering these from Tribeca Treats, and had a great experience with them (super responsive, really great customer service). To be honest, I wasn't worried too much about taste, but the cookies are great!
For favors, I got each of the ladies a tube of Smith's Rosebud salve. Aside from the pretty packaging, I borrowed my friend's tube at a wedding recently and it completely saved my lips!
The food ay Palma is absolutely delicious; everything is served family style, which is perfect because none of us wanted to miss a single bite.
You may remember from this post that I love the idea of pastels for a bridal shower. Something about it feels so "ladies who lunch," so I was pumped to find this dress half off over the summer. Super comfy with plenty of room for eatin', and long sleeves which are my absolute favorite.
Pretty ladies :)
It was a great day, friends. Thanks for reading!
