A few years ago when my cousin Cody (who is like a brother to me) casually mentioned was bringing a girlfriend home for the Carlson Cookie Exchange my mom and I immediately Facebook stalked here (not my finest moment..sorry Allie!). Allie and I instantly connected over a shared love of baking and Pinterest (solid foundations for friendship in my world!) Last Summer, when Cody finally asked Allie to Marry Him last Summer we were beyond excited to welcome Allie to the family. Allie’s the perfect compliment to my cousin and I’ve been beyond blessed to get to know her more in the last years.
This past Spring I threw a Vintage Garden Party Shower for Allie to honor her and welcome her into the Carlson Family! The day was a celebration of their love and full of vintage-inspired, hand-made goodness!
