The last of our daughters is getting married.
A beautiful bridal shower was given to her last week.
Many personalities and talents went together to create a very special evening for her.
The delicious and artistically served food came from separate kitchens to be served on one dining room table for all of us to enjoy.
It was a memorable evening and for some reason I thought you might like seeing
a few of the pictures that were captured throughout the time spent together.The perfectly set table.
Bouquet arranged by my sister with flowers from Costco.

The hostess of the evening, my dear sister-in-law holding one of her hot appetizer specialties.
I admire her ability to organize and oversee many different events in life.

Another talented sister-in-law of mine holding a tray of fruit kabobs she painstakingly put together including tiny green ribbons tied at each end of the fruit. I can't imagine how long it took her to complete the job.

My youngest sister, the decorator. She took many pictures from my daughter's facebook pictures of her and her fiance', and copied them in sepia, decorated them and had them sitting on the table. It personalized the event and added a special touch.
My middle sister also helped with the food, but she has her son and daughter-in-law's
shower and wedding that she is involved with now. I look forward to helping all of these ladies with showers for their children in the future.

Plates of scrumptious tasting sandwiches.

My neice-in-law served tiny dishes of ice cream to all of the guests while the gifts were being opened. It was a special touch that I had not see done before at a bridal shower.

Little ice cream sundaes.

Tiny favors in green bags decorated and filled with the bride's favorite candies...Baskin Robbins hard candy cookies 'n cream.

The bride-to-be and part of her bridal party.
Girls that she loves dearly.

One of her high school friends who recently had her own wedding. Really, it seems like only yesterday that I was taking them on school field trips, assisting with sleep overs and taking prom pictures. I've said it before so often, but it all goes by so quickly.
The shower was a wonderful gift of love, time and creativity from so many of the people she loves.
Photos skillfully captured by our dear neice and future bridesmaid.

Oh my, I remember how how felt when my last son married. It was bittersweet for me. I love being their Mom, though that never stops, I had to stop and take note they now have a place in an others heart as well.
Happy to report they still need me, rely on me and turn to me for counsel that a Mom can give. Amazing to watch them put their wives first in their day to day living.
Job will done Mom...moment of watching the fruits of our labor come in to full bloom.
Can't wait to see wedding photos!
Hugs <3
