My older sister lives in Ireland, so it’s always a special occasion when we get to see each other. She just so happened to be in the states for her best friend’s wedding, so she added on an extra week in Charleston to come visit us with her fiancé. Since my mom and little sister now live in Charleston as well, we figured it would be the perfect time to throw her a bridal shower! We had the opportunity to celebrate their engagement when we visited them in Ireland for New Years, but not with our family present. Once my mom confirmed that the date worked for everyone, we started to put the plans into motion!
We knew that our front porch would be the perfect setting for an intimate gathering of friends and family. My mom and I loved the idea of having one long table to fit everyone- something casual and welcoming. My sister is laid back and go-with-the-flow and we wanted the shower to represent her. When I was putting together my outfit, I was looking to wear something stylish and comfortable head-to-toe. I was recently introduced to Birdies, a completely new take on slippers. These just so happen to be the cutest slippers especially designed for entertaining at home, (or just lounging) as well as to wear outside of the house. I showed my sisters and mom and we all decided we would wear them with our dresses to the party, and that they would make the perfect gift for guests to take home, too.
I love anything that makes a good, seamless transition and these Birdies slippers are perfect for that. Comfortable slippers that I’ll reach for in the morning, but don’t have to change out of when I’m leaving the house. We all became quickly obsessed with them when we slipped them on for the first time. We chose the new, fun pom-pom style that looks like they were meant for a party! I love mine so much that I wore them throughout the entire day and into the next day as well.
Thank you to Birdies for sponsoring this post.
