Wedding Shower

Yes, I know this post is long overdue, especially since the shower was on Valentine's Day! Well, here it is, in all of it's Bridal Shower glory!

The food and drink bar, covered in royal blue, white or clear serving dishes, accented with pink tulle.

The gift table.

The sign-in table. Yes, I did the floral arrangement myself! You couldn't get this for $30 at a floral shop! The flowers were from Sam's and were just beautiful.

We also had a table set up along each wall for people to set their plates or drinks. Each of these tables was covered in white with a royal blue mat, two candles, and a personal size trifle dish full of candy hearts. "Where did you get those adorable mats?" you might ask. Well, they were designed and crafted by yours truly! I drew the flowers on the mat and then cut them out with an exacto knife.

Elizabeth was the entertainment before guests arrive. She's putting on quite a show for her Great Aunt Barbara and Great Grandma Liz.

Climbing in the wagon for nap time!


Margaret (Travis's Aunt and mother of the groom) wanted Rachel to play a game where she had to identify articles of clothing and then pin them on the line. At the end of the line was Mark, her fiance. Truth be told, I was a little skeptical about this game, but it turned out to be so cute and she seemed to really have a good time playing!

It didn't hurt the comedy factor that all of the clothes were Margaret's!

Aww...the couple of honor!

This picture of Elizabeth was taken toward the very end of the shower. She's all tuckered out and was just happy to be hiding behind the bar munching on a cracker. She was such a good girl all day, even with no nap! Of course, she was the center of attention and didn't mind that one bit!

It was so fun to plan this shower with my MIL and her sisters. The day turned out to be just perfect and all of our guests had a good time! Maybe the next shower we plan will be her baby shower! Just kidding!

I don't think I've ever seen Elizabeth with a little pony tail (or if I have, I don't remember)! So adorable!!!

Elizabeth is sooo cute! She looks like such a big girl in the last picture (I know we all say that every time you post a new picture!).
