A Sweet June Bridal Shower

Hello, Dear Friends, Welcome to summer! 

I've missed you all!

I've been so busy in the gardens,
celebrating Father's Day,
this past weekend a sweet little Bridal Shower 
to celebrate my daughter, Jennie's upcoming wedding. 

Jennie's sweet sister, Heather (and best friend)
wanted to show her love by inviting 
a few close family and friends over for 
a little celebration for the bride-to-be. 

(She planned it all in between working and 
caring for her toddler and 5 mos. old twins!)  
She's truly amazing!
(And so is hubby!
Check out the immaculate grounds.....)

Come along and let's take a peek inside! 

Lavender and daisies blooming :)

Fuchsia baskets and potted blooms.

A boxwood wreath. 

A sweet vignette.

 Let's go inside......

'Guess how many kisses for the soon-to-be Mrs.!'

A deconstructed cake decorated with 
garden roses. 

Tasty refreshments. 

Mango Moscato wine with sparkling water and berries
fresh squeezed lemon/limeade. 

Yummy eats. 

Something for everyone, 
including berry, cheese picks.........

Olive, cheese, kielbasa 
tomato, mozzarella, basil bites

Pasta salad....
Orzo, arugula, cranberry and feta. 

Chicken salad and tomato 'flowers'
cream cheese and chive cucumber rounds. 

Cream cheese and strawberry jam 
with strawberry 'hearts'. 

The pretty seating area. 

It was a perfect June day. 
(Although there were worries - it rained the night before!)

A chair with umbrella attached for the bride-to-be
as she is 'showered' for her upcoming wedding. 

Her favorite flowers. 

A 'practice veil' rests on the back of her chair. 

Pretty bottles tinkle in the summer breeze. 

Canning jar vases. 

Burlap and lace. 

A sweet photo garland. 

Thank-you cards for guests to address. 

Bridal shower games;

'Put a Ring On It!'

Place a ring on your finger. 
If you say 'wedding' or 'bride' 
you forfeit your ring to the one who notices....
The one with the most rings at the end of the day
wins a prize! 

More fun games....

Delicately wrapped prizes. 

(Beauty products!)


The bride-to-be arrives! 

Sisters and best friends. 

Jennie and 'her girls';
Fiance' Steve's beautiful daughters. 

Let's eat! 

Precious friends and family. 

Selfie time! 

Jennie and I.

The crown has a miniature bride and groom :)

Heartfelt gifts. 

Pretty and practical.

Hugs all around.

Time for cake.
