Bridal Shower!

How better to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a few photos from Kellie's bridal shower?

I flew out at 6AM Friday, my driveway having been plowed of a foot of snow a good 6 hours before I left at 3:30AM, and it was bitter cold.  But the flights were on time, and everything went smooth as silk.

My other daughters and I decided upon an Alice in Wonderland theme, and they pretty much took point on the decorations.  I wield a mean credit card, and getting the room, meal and decor were all I needed worry about.  It all worked out well, though.

Cass and Shannon made all of these little Mad Tea Party hats for the guests to wear.  The one on the very top is a little white top hat, with "Bride" spelled out in scrabble tiles, and a veil with little jewels sprinkled on it.  The girls made sure I had one with a comb for attaching, so it wouldn't wreck my hair.
 A typical table.
 The groom's mother and me, before we donned our hats.
 This was the room, after we'd finished setup, before guests arrived.  The groom's mother was a whiz at tying bows in the chair sashes.
 Shannon came up with the red-dipped paintbrushes and pinwheels to be added to the flower arrangements.  Aren't they wonderful details?
 Kellie with her future sister in law.  Note the silly pouf hat on her head.  They were fun.
 That's Shannon and me with all of the in-laws.  They were charming ladies, and the little 2 year old girl is just adorable.  (Note that I brought her a little stuffed elephant, so we could be instant friends.  Nothing says fun to a little girl like a little stuffed animal, and I'll buy a friend if I want to.)
 I bought Kellie a Lenox china cake topper, and wrapped it for her celebration.  I figure she might as well have a good quality, permanent ornament for her house.
 Opening her presents, with help from the little girl (who will also be her flower girl).  It was a good day, and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.

Happy Tuesday, and Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!  I hope you all are spoiled by someone who loves you best of all!
