the bridal shower was a success.
although my maids, mother, mother-in-law and i may have lost some sleep
it all came together quite wonderfully
and it wouldn't have without all of their help, patience and hard work
thank you thank you thank you
it was a GORGEOUS day out (which i was nervous about)
i have so many photos i'm going to have to break it up into a few days of posting
first: the decorations
i don't know how many of you out there enjoy bubbly wine but in our house we LOVE lambrusco from trader joes
we drink it-often.
one of my maids of honor came up with a great idea for re-use of the bottles
we filled them with baby's breath and created a pathway through the backyard to the shower
thank goodness for all the rain lately: it was so green!
pom poms were everywhere...we had been working on them all week
i woke up at 6 am the morning of and arranged all of the flowers in the various vintage vessels (alliteration) i've been collecting.
along with using several of my pieces for the flowers, i got to use a lot of the mismatched china i've been collecting as well.
next up for tomorrow: food/games
