Bridal Shower

The bridal shower was wonderful. My daughter Caitlin was actually glowing! I love the dress she picked out it made her look so bride like! Warning lots of pictures to follow....

Her maid of honor, Amanda and her matron of honor, Jenny decorated the room. It was so pretty!

The bridesmaids were scurrying about with the finishing touches. My granddaughter Fallon was also a big help.

The color scheme was pink and aqua, be still my heart!

Caitlin did not want any games (thank you) so I thought this was a nice compromise.

Party favors.

She looked so pretty.

Maddy's cookbook was a big hit. Yes the Hello Kitty bag was what she chose to wrap some of her gifts in.

My quilt was one of the first gifts she opened. She started crying right away, she really likes it! I wasn't so sure she would. It still is hard to photograph.

Her she is with 3 of her best friends, Wendy, Caitlin, Amanda and Kelly with Maddy in front. She has been friends with Amanda since kindergarten and with Kelly since 2 grade.

Maddy brought one of her best friends, Julie.

Here she is with all her bridal party....Keagan, Krista, Jenny, Mary, Wendy, Caitlin, Amanda, Kelly, Georgetta, Deanna and flower girl, Madison.

My job was to do the flowers. I bought hydrangea, stock (the purplish one) and roses in pink and white with pink edging. We put them in antique blue Ball canning jars.

They turned out pretty nice and looked very pretty in the room. The stock smelled so good, kind of spicey.

This is her fiance, Jim. He came when it was all over to help get everything home.
He is a super guy and I think they will be very happy. Only 2 more months to go!



  1. Oh, she looks so pretty and happy too. The room and flowers look beautiful. (I like the first picture of the three of you).
    Her quilt looks so pretty, I can see how it is hard to photograph, have to get it just right or the colors wash out, but the left edge shows the beautiful colors. I know it will be loved forever.
    Congrats to the happy couple.

  2. Wow, so beautiful! The bride and the quilt! It looks like you all had a great time. The flowers are gorgeous, especially since Hydrangeas are my favorites.
