Busy Weekend!

My other daughters and I held a bridal shower for the bride-to-be.  I'm glad that's done; the worry of planning, and whether everyone would be happy, made me crazy.  This from the person who thinks nothing of hosting Thanksgiving dinner for 25!  Who'd have thought holding an event that's catered and not at my house would trouble me?

Buying miscellaneous china tea cups and decorating them as shower favors was positively inspired!  Everyone made sure to take theirs with them. (Note: it took a lot longer than I anticipated to get all those bows just right.)

 The groom's mother ordered the cake, red velvet.  Of course, Blogger turned the picture upside down and I can't make it get right.  Stand on your head to see it properly oriented.  Trust me; I'm helping you get your exercise.  You're welcome.
 Presents.  The fabric wrapped things were shrubs for the bride's new house.  Both the groom's mother and I had pictures from their childhoods printed, we ordered matching sets of frames, and set them up for all to admire.

 Her sisters insisted Shannon needed a veil.  Just look how thrilled she was.  It lasted at least 90 seconds after the picture was taken.

 Bridal Pictionary is a great shower game.
 Even 94 year old grannies can participate!
So, that's where I've been.  I made myself a new dress for the occasion, but since I ran the camera, it's not photographed anywhere.  Oh, well.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I'd say the stress might come from wanting everything to be just right.

I'm glad everything went smoothly. The teacups -- what a clever idea. I'll steal that for something-or-other someday.

It looks like it was a huge success! The tea cup party favors is such a great idea and so is the game of Pictionary. Your daughter looks beautiful!

Oh how I hate showers, but yours looked like everyone was enjoying themselves. Now on to the main event.
