My dear book club friends hosted a beautiful bridal shower for my daughter yesterday. Everything was lovely. Feast your eyes on all the prettiness . . .
The theme was books and tea, favorites of the bride-to-be and the hostesses alike. Each table was decorated with a pretty teapot filled with roses and sitting atop some favorite classic books.
Lovely vintage teacups, waiting to be filled with a variety of hot, freshly brewed teas or coffee . . .
or a choice of a variety of other special teas.
Rose and gold, a favorite color combo of the bride-to-be.
And what is tea without delicious homemade scones? We were treated to a variety, filled with nuts and berries, rhubarb and pineapple . . . with plenty of lemon curd and clotted cream and jam. Delicious!
Fruit cups . . .
And so many other delicious foods, including chicken salad, quiche, sweet potato and macaroni salads, croissants, little ham roll-ups, and more.
Then it was time to play games (and win prizes!) . . .
. . . and for the bride-to-be and her fiancé, who had just arrived, to open gifts.
And eat cake! Check out this beautiful bride dress, made of cupcakes.
Adorned with such nice jewelry . . .
A lovely strawberry cake . . .
And speaking of love birds . . .
The happy soon-to-be bride and groom . . .
and one happy mama!
I brought home a prize . . .
and a little treat of candy bar, biscotti, and tea, with a little reminder attached.
What a happy day. Thank you, sweet friends, for all the care and attention you put into making such a special day for Jessica. Everything was so beautiful, just like you.
