Bridal Showers Bring Joy

 Hello everyone!  Happy Monday!



This is such a busy time of year but isn't it great there are so many happy events to go to?


I love happy occasions like graduations, baby and bridal showers, weddings and so forth. 

 It's such a blessing to get together for such spirit-lifting events.


Went to a bridal shower this past weekend. Ohhhhh, it was lovely.

Met the bride-to-be for the first time and she was a living doll!


The setting of the shower was outside, near a gorgeous lake.




Weather was perfect....warm and breezy. 


Lace cloths on tables along the porch looked so charming.  


 Very pretty floral centerpieces decorated each table.




I loved the lavender touches!


And how about the view everyone had?  Wowee!


 The bride-to-be opened her gifts out on the lawn, under the trees. Perfect!

























Then we moved to the porch and had a nice lunch with three kinds of sandwiches, beans, chickpea salad, and a delicious pineapple and coconut ambrosia. 


 We even played Bridal Bingo with round candies used to cover the squares!







It was a most memorable afternoon .


Naturally, everyone wished the attractive bride-to-be and her handsome soon-to-be groom a lifetime of happiness!

I'll post a little bit more on the shower another day.

Sorry I couldn't come myself. I would have loved to have been there. Everything looked so pretty and I'm so glad the weather was good for an outside event. You never know in New England!

This looks like a truly festive occasion!

What I enjoy most about showers is the shopping for that "perfect gift" beforehand. It is such an exciting time for the honoree.
