Yesterday I had the honor of providing a tea party for Suzanne's Bridal Shower. It was a wonderful group of ladies who came together to celebrate, and since Suzanne and her soon to-be-husband live in Guam for their work it was extra special to see them have a great time. The entire afternoon was filled with LAUGHTER. This was the most laughing group I have been around, and I loved it. I love hearing laughter. Especially at the part where they are having a fashion show from the gals dressed-up in the toilet paper wedding gowns game. Perhaps it was because of the southern punch with spirits, and they didn't know it was spiked?
The shower was held at the bride-to-be sister's home, Nanette, who was the hostess of the event. It ended up being a beautiful, sunny afternoon, but we were worried for a while since that morning it was very windy and looked like possible rain. But we kept praying to the weather gods, and they must of heard us...
I made all the floral decor, menu cards and napkin "rings".
The red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. The ones I was going to make the cupcake cuddlers for. Didn't happen. Had way too much to do and ran out of time. But it is still very pretty.
Since she is a worldly well-traveled gal, I included a shower activity of signs posted with the words "I love you" in different languages and the ladies had to figure which language was what.

I'm still fixing a lot of the photos since I used my new camera, a Canon Rebel XTi which I am still getting used to, and need to figure out the settings. Manual schmanual.
