shower 1

Bridal shower on Saturday,  July 11 had a chalkboard look along with a touch of blue and white.  A chalkboard sign in the yard welcomed the bride-to-be and her guests to the shower.


The posts on the porch were decorated with white delphiniums and silver sprays.


The letter “A” was a door decoration.


The table centerpiece consisted of white flowers and silver spray along with a large diamond ring on a pedestal.


Miniature individual quiche, fruit kebabs, assorted yogurts, nut bread, blueberry muffins and Danish pastry were the items on the menu along with mimosa’s and other beverages.

While guests enjoyed drinks on the deck, they also took pictures with photo props.


Guests enjoyed themselves participating in several activities, and a gift tray was loaded with door prizes for everyone.


The bride-to-be requested that guests bring a brooch to be incorporated into her wedding bouquet.  They were pinned for the time being to a paper bouquet.


I said the following for the toast:   Getting married is easy.  The really tough part is ahead of (them) which is staying married. (They), no doubt, will have many good times together in the upcoming years, but (they) will also have some bad moments, and occasionally (they) may encounter some ugliness.  Hopefully, they will have a life filled with enough good things to sustain (them) when it is not going well.

For that day, however, everyone came to celebrate the goodness that awaits Ashley when she says, “I do.”
