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
Mango Moscato wine with sparkling water and berries
fresh squeezed lemon/limeade.
Something for everyone,
including berry, cheese picks.........
Olive, cheese, kielbasa
tomato, mozzarella, basil bites
Orzo, arugula, cranberry and feta.

It was a perfect June day.
