Bridal Shower

Hello dear friends! 

Several weeks 6.....I hosted a Bridal Shower for my lovely (one and only!) daughter, Lori and her fianc√© Tim!  It was a labor of love for a beautiful couple on a beautiful day!  Family and friends were kind enough to make the trek over the bridge!  And for that we are so grateful.  I think fun was had by all......I know the wine flowed freely!  Wink, Wink!

My only regret was about halfway through, actually more than halfway through, I asked, has anyone taken any photos?!?!  Tsk Tsk, shame on me!  :(  But, I managed to find a few from the day!

  1. Wow Donna - what an amazing party!! Your daughter is so beautiful and her hubby looks so cute in those pink shorts ♥ brave man lol!!!! You made so many fantastic projects, games, charms and more -- did you do the calligraphy too? My oh my oh my!! Now that's a fun, crafty, loving mom!!!! TFS the special day. Can't wait for the wedding day!

    1. Oh no, my handwriting looks like chicken scratch (see the date night jar) lol All computerized and/or Cameo cut vinyl! ;)

  2. I am sitting here with my morning coffee and I feel like I just had a visit with you in your backyard. The theme that you created with decorations and the games and gifts are so amazing and just filled with love and creativeness. You created a day for all to remember. I am glad that you had these pictures to look back on and that you shared with with us. I know that you enjoyed doing it and I can't wait for the wedding pictures. Only 54 more days.....the countdown starts!

  3. So glad you shared these - what a beautiful day, and what a beautiful couple. I can tell you put a lot of love and effort into everything, your creativity really shows. Those wine glass charms are so cool. And now, as Barb said, on to the real event!!!!

  4. What an awesome hostess you are as well as a creative artist! This will be a memorable day for your beautiful daughter and handsome son-in-law and all your guests. And the best is yet to come!

  5. Wow! What fun! I also feel like I've been there! Love every bit of it -- the games, the monogrammed block, the wine charms...especially, the pictures! You really outdid yourself. Your daughter looks like you! Best Wishes to the happy couple!

  6. It looks like it was a great time for all. Love the decorative elements as well for the occasion. Beautiful couple as well.

  7. What a fun looking party. Love your wine theme LOL. Really cool game ideas and charms

  8. Forgot to ask..."what will you do with all free time after the wedding"? LOL

  9. Oh my goodness....what an amazing momma you are! Love all of your fabulous creations, and that you had time to share photos! Your daughter and future son-in-law make such a lovely couple, and look SO happy! Hugs...

  10. I so enjoyed looking through all of these photos Donna! Love the games and the wine charms and glasses. You out did yourself for sure...that wedding is coming up quickly! Enjoy every minute prior and during!

  11. Yesterday finished up my Mod Squad duties and I finally have time make some comments and watch some videos. Love the ideas for the party. The favors are great. Is that center piece a glass block? Are the flowers on the inside or behind? did you etch the fabulous design on center piece and glasses. Love the idea for the game. He who has the most necklaces wins? Ok I'll stop before I get to twenty questions. Thanks for sharing... it makes me feel like I am part of the festivities.

    1. Close to 20! lol Yes, a glass block....plant was behind it on the table....everything was a Cameo cut on vinyl. <3

  12. Thank you Goddess of All Things Craftalicious.
    I am so copying your ideas.
