Bridal Shower fun

Well, today if you need Bridal shower ideas or just want to see the photos from Kate's Shower yesterday this is the place to be, because this is a "project-less" post ..but you'll see paper crafts used in the decorating in super cute ways. 

This shower was hosted by My nieces Diana and Amy, and my sister Jan ( in the middle).   And what a perfect day they made it for everyone.
They had rented a beautiful clubhouse for the afternoon to have the shower.  Here is Kate, her niece, sister and her mom arriving.

I love the way they took photos of the kids from when they were small....up to graduation .. and to now... added little sayings and had them framed, sitting around.

They had actually put away the decor pieces at the clubhouse so they could decorate with all the pretties using Kate's colors. The blues and greens.  Everything was so pretty!

sweet huh?

awww... baby Kate and Jarad :)

The "K" is one of the wooden letters you can get at Hobby Lobby, covered with scrapbook paper. I picked up a "J" and a "K" to do the same with for the rehearsal dinner.

My sister used my AccuCut  Pennant Flags die to make this cute banner swag.
I love how she left them hanging freely instead of adhering the them together.  What a fun different look.


My sis is an "attention to details" sort of girl.. lol... look at the peanuts in these little bitty plastic champagne glasses.

.... and food.  Need I say more?   Wow!

Everything was so delicious and so beautifully set.

Kate got so many beautiful things.

We played a couple of really fun games and this was one of them. We broke up into teams and each team had 4 rolls of toilet paper and and a time limit to create a wedding dress on one of there team members.
SO funny!

 Being with family and friends is the BEST ... so for my everyday photos
for the weekend that will be added to my little book I'm creating ... photos of  me with my loved ones.  I am making a promise to myself as I work on this "Everyday Life" book to make sure (as much as I dislike having my picture taken)..they I will have photos of myself in it.  I think alot of us feel that way about photos of ourselves, ( I'm at the top of that list).. but it's important that we arent always the ones "taking the photos"... but that we are actually "in" a few also.

Me with my niece Amy.

My bestie Deb
and my long time forever friend Julie.

And the person who is my side kick.. my partner in crime, the person I count on for so much, and who is ALWAYS there for me ... my sissy

But back to the girl of the hour... the bride to me.... looking so proud of her gown lol.
I think she had a pretty fantastic day also :)

Thanks for letting me share!

Have a super start to your week!

Hugs, Vic
