The Bridal Shower

Saturday was a busy day for me. I started out the morning by making a quick run to Walmart and then hurried back home to get ready for a bridal shower that afternoon. I know the grooms family, but it was the first chance I had to meet the bride. She is an absolute sweetheart and I really enjoyed meeting her and her family and friends.

The decorations were gorgeous. Her future mother-in-law did a wonderful job with everything. 

The cupcakes were so cute. Not to mention absolutely delicious. They came from the bakery at our local store and they are by far my favorite cupcakes in the county.

The food was a big hit. Everything was delicious.

They had an awesome punch made with cranberry juice and oranges.

My contribution to the event was hubby's pasta salad. It is well-received everywhere he sends it. It has pasta, Italian dressing, cherry tomatoes, black olives, cucumber, carrot, jalapeno pepper, red onion, bacon bits, Red Delicious apple and Granny Smith apple.

These vases were so beautiful. They were a big hit. Everybody was wanting to go buy some to decorate their houses. 

We had a fun time dividing into teams and picking one of our team members to be "the bride". We had to fashion her a gown from toilet paper. The group I was in, got to dress up the bridesmaid who is also the grooms sister. Our team was one of the winners. 

I don't like having my picture made, but while I was taking pictures of the room, somebody took a picture of me taking a picture. 

The bride had her flower girl help her open the gifts. The flower girl is my little granddaughter, Shelby. Shelby got as excited as the bride when they were opening the gifts. 

The groom's mother made little thank you gifts for all those who attended. 

Aren't they just adorable!

As I was leaving, I just happened to look across the road and something caught my eye up on a hill. I thought it looked like 3 or 4 deer. My daughter loaned me her camera and I zoomed in and it turned out there were 9 deer enjoying their supper. 

It was an awesome day and I am thankful I had the opportunity to attend. I came home and got in my comfy clothes and did some rearranging and decorating in the kitchen. I'll be posting picks of that tomorrow. Enjoy your Sunday!
