Showers are a Beautiful Thing

Yum
My friends and I did what we do best... throw a party and when you are doing it for a friend, there is nothing more fun!  In our age experience, we have learned to do things that make a wonderful impact at a minimum of effort.  We still require a high degree of sophistication, but now we know how to pull that off much easier.

For example, instead of having the party at our home, we decided to have it at Summit Lake Winery.  They had to clean up before and after.  Joey had the cupcakes made by a friend of hers and they were yummy.  Denise brought in the paper goods for the cupcakes.  We ordered appetizers and wine from the Winery (and hit their buy one get one free apps, too!).  The Winery provided cloth napkins, plates and silver along with sparkling wine glasses!  Terri ordered the invites online.  Charlotte made favors from Hershey candy bars using the couple's save the date photo.  Tambra put together a darling centerpiece using the bride's crystal and some lovely flowers!  Marsha came looking radiant like the mother-of-the-bride should!



Kylene received beautiful pieces of her china and crystal as gifts.  We all heard about the wedding, how she and Matt met, and met Matt's lovely mother, Pat.

Afterward we stayed and partied with Bob's band, 2 Car Pile Up.  A great way to spend a late spring day!
