A Bridal Shower

Happy Monday to you! In a few weeks, the daughter of my dear friend Kam, is getting married. Four of us gathered together to throw her a bridal shower yesterday. Actually, it was planned while I was in Ireland, so I only did a minor amount of work setting up and helping. It was wonderful; so many ladies gathered to honor and bless the bride. We thought we'd have 30-35 gals, with some kiddos, but in actuality only 27 came. I didn't get a photo of the table with the veges and fruit kabobs, but here are photos of some of the other food and decorations.


Instead of giving out treats to the ladies who came, we set up a candy bar with clear bags so each gal could take home some sweets.  We had more than enough food, even though the gals whose home we had it in thought we might run short.  The bride was given so many nice presents and it was very special to see her surrounded with such love. 
This week will be a busy one as we get ready to head to California, to see  loved ones.  It will be a short trip-just one week and we will be bringing back some dear friends.   They haven't been here to visit in 7 yrs, so we will drive them home with us(an old fashioned roadie)and then they will fly home after a week or so.  It should be such fun!!!  I've got some staples to stock up on and gardening to do, but we are ready for them.  I'm also planning on finding fabric for my next quilt. 
I hope you had a nice weekend and have a wonderful day!

  1. Looked like you all put on a nice shower for the bride to be. I'll bet you can't wait to get to California ... and to bring back your friends with you. How awesome to have an old fashioned road trip with dear friends! Are you drive to California or renting a car for the return trip?
