Bride, n. A woman with a fine prospect behind her.
Ambrose Bierce

Today I'm participating in Kelly's Korner with "Show Us Your Life." This week's topic is wedding showers.

I've only planned one wedding shower and then, of course, only had one hosted in my honor. Both were with my dear friend, Casey. One for her wedding when I was maid of honor and then mine was hosted by her when she was my matron of honor, ahem, best woman.

Casey's shower was hosted by my mother and I in November 2006 at my mom's home in Florida.

Yummy food in the kitchen (the same kitchen where two years I later cut my own wedding cake!)

My mom's delicious punch.

The bride to be with the standard ribbon bouquet.

With the bride to be.

Casey hosted my bridal shower in October 2008 at her home.

Awesome food... she runs restaurants with her family, it was a given!

With Casey and my friend Melissa.

I love me some polka dots!

Beautiful quilt made by my mother with my father's shirts (he died in 2002). It is so soft and warm, we now use it all the time!

Beautiful pictures and the food does look yummy. I grew up with 'church punch' - aka, no alcohol. Then I went to a shower where they were serving "punch". It got very warm in the room suddenly and I looked at my mom and she was getting LOOPY!! What a surprise for us all.

Oh wow that is so cool that you have a quilt made out of your dad's shirts. That is the coolest thing ever!

Casey said...

Thanks for the best woman thing :)

I love the quilt your mom made. That is by far the sweetest gift I have ever heard of.
