So we re-work all plans to have an indoor shower, and this is what we came up with.....
First you set up a phony shopping day so the Mother of the Groom (that would be me) can purchase a dress. Of course I needed the help of my daughter, my daughter in law to be and her Mother to make the trip complete. This of course was never the plan, all along it was this shower. But this shopping trip rouse worked very well..........
We had all the guests sign in on the kitchen chalkboard. Love this chalkboard!
This is a jar of dates for the happy couple. Each guest wrote down a fun "date" to draw from after getting married, because let's be honest. Date night should not go away just because you are married.
Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting and Strawberry shortcake cupcakes with a whipped cream frosting. There was also ice cream for those that wanted, and most wanted.........
Flower arrangements in jars to match the out of doors wedding and reception decor for the special day in June.
And of course gifts, what is a shower without gifts for the happy couple? Our gift to the happy couple? I went through the kitchen and picked out items that have been used to produce happy times around the table and made a stack, when presented to the couple I said "from our kitchen to your kitchen, these were used to make happy times and will continue to make happy times".
Included were a cookbook, wooden spoon, a crinkle cutter, glass pie pan, a small rectangular serving platter, a dish cloth, a slotted spatula, a lemon juicer and a serving fork. This was a simple gift tied together with twine and presented with love.
This great framed memory date of 06 23 13, the day of the wedding and each anniversary thereafter.
It must be mentioned that my husband Terry was like always my side-by-side partner and daughter Jessica did a wonderful job on the cakes and the beautiful decorations, games and the memory date gift.
Congratulations to the happy couple and now, bring on the month of June, because we are ready!
As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. We appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!
