Bridal Shower for Two!

Two weeks ago three of my closest friends threw Miss G and I a bridal shower. I will honestly say that for a while I didn't think I was going to have a shower. I don't have a traditional bridal party and since it is my second wedding a lot of stuff gets forgotten or pushed to the side. In one of my few Bridal Meltdowns I told my bestest friend 'A' that I didn't think I was going to get a shower. What happened next was VERY kind and considerate of her, but completely unexpected. Not knowing my entire group of friends she went to my Honorary MOH and asked her take the reigns. MOH J did just that, and got 2 of my other friends B & C to help as well.

Walking in the front door of my friend B's house we were greated by an adorable little table all decked out with photos of our family.


Around the room there was a few more by the food



and by the drinks. As a quick side note these adorable infusion jars will be used at the wedding as well. I think they need cute little signs - Bill thinks I am insane LOL. If you look close you can also see our pics on the side of the fridge!


One last picture and a beautiful floral arrangement on the dessert table. I think I had one of each kind! Oops!


We had a nice intimate number of friends and family. I was very honored by all that were able to come. After a few fun games (that all involved writing so Miss G couldn't really participate as much.) She and I opened presents

beautiful serving plates from my SIL


a honeymoon basket with rose petals, candles, champagne, chocolate & the Love Dare book


our new dishes courtesy of one of the ladies at the church


one of my favorite gifts - a quilt & sham set with embroidered sunflowers!

my friend C made the rehearsal bouquet.


Of course Miss G modeled it for me.

It was one of the best ways to spend a Saturday afternoon. With friends :)

my brother in law got us those same dishes and I LOVE THEM!!!
I'm glad you got a shower. I would have loved to have one but alas not a single person offered to throw us one.
