Historically, bridal showers are said to have started in the 1500s when a couple could not afford a dowry…some say it goes all the way back to planned marriages in the Middle East when the older women would prepare homes for the young couples. Nevertheless, I hope this is a tradition which will not change…where family and friends help a young couple get started with their lives together.
|Of course, Gigi was there!|
|Several Mother and Daughter teams attended|
|My daughter was a co-hostess with me...and future grandson!|
There are many types of showers….even lingerie (blush!)…but I chose to host a kitchen shower for my future daughter-in-law because I know how much my son loves food….I kind of created that monster! The theme was easy….AUTUMN! It became a natural decoration and refreshment theme to follow for the fourth day of November. I hope you will enjoy celebrating with us!
The beautiful bride- to- be received many wonderful items for the kitchen and got a great start on her registry dishes.
|Everyone's favorite wrapping paper came from Target!|
Later in the week, I will share with you how to make the pumpkin cheese ball and the cupcakes…both were ridiculously easy! Cupcakes from the many cute little cupcake bakeries, which are all over town, are really expensive, but it was quite affordable to make my own!
|I picked up this idea from other showers...instead of paper plates they use a mixture of different plates|
just collected from various places. I really like this idea! Gigi added in a few of hers and we had a
nice autumn color mix!
This was a special gathering today of friends who are really family and I know it blessed my son and his fiancé tremendously!
|Yes, I know, I forgot to light the pine cone candles on the buffet table...oh well, just cannot think|
HAVE A WONDERFUL AUTUMN MONDAY AND make sure you visit the ladies of VISIBLE MONDAY!! Whew...now I'm off to get some rest!
