In less then two weeks my beautiful niece, Alison, will be married! She graduated a couple of weeks ago with a nursing degree. She has been hired at a local hospital and will switch from a student nurse in oncology to a RN in the cardiology department when she returns from her honeymoon. I keep asking myself where the time has gone!
I had the privilege of throwing her a bridal shower.
My friend, Brianna, made the cupcakes. She called to say she had extras after making the dress and asked what the wedding flowers were. I love the daisies she made!
Megan made the J+A sign. She had the idea one evening while Chuck was cutting up a limb. She found the scrap wood and told us what she wanted. I helped her stain the wood and get the spacing down when gluing it together. I am impressed with her creativity!
I keep the centerpieces simple. The buckets are from the Target Dollar Spot and I bought garden daisies so they could be reused. All of the buckets had a part of 1 Corinthians 13: 4-13 written on them.
I found a fun game on Pinterest called The Price is Right. Everyone has to guess the retail price for each of the items and the one with the most wins. We had tons of fun with this game. It was really hard since we have frugal friends and family and we all keep wanting to write down the sale price. When I was calling out the retail price people were calling out the rock bottom sale price and telling Alison not to pay more then that for the item. :) It is by far my favorite shower game EVER. The bride to be received all of the items to start her out.
Future mother and sister in law.
Alison's sister Katie. Also the maid of honor.
Last, but not least, is my family. My mom, sister along with her four daughters and then Megan and myself.
It was a wonderful afternoon and tons of fun for me to put this together.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
