The Shower...

So, I've been busy for the past month and a half planning my Sister, Nicole's bridal shower with my SIL, Jess. It's been a very busy month. Honestly, I didn't do as much as I wanted to do. Jess really helped out and she stepped up and took the reigns on several items. I'm very Thankful for that! Thanks Jess!! We took the advice of another bridesmaid and chose to have a tea party for her. We had it at the Monponsett Inn in Halifax. It was wonderful... although Nicole wasn't surprised. Oh well. So,

Last week, Erika came over and helped with the favors...


I'm actually having Tea out of my cup right now!
Then Saturday Jess came over with her family and we made the centerpieces...
Did I mention her wedding colors are White, Black and Claret?

Some of the other bridesmaids got this ginormous cake that was gorgeous but ended up being way more than we needed. Take a look at this thing! It's amazing. She never did tell me the actual name of the bakery just some "Italian place in Quincy". Don't bother looking, that doesn't narrow it down!

This cake cost nearly one sixth of what the entire wedding cost. It was good cake too!

Here's the bride with her groom opening some gifts...

She tried real hard but ended up cutting two ribbons plus breaking the one on the first present. The first was a give-me, as they already have Steven's 6 year old little girl, Julia but the other two, well those are predictions!! YAH, baby!! 2 kids in Nicole's future. Let's hope she waits a few years.

I have a few other pictures but they aren't the best. I stopped taking pictures after the picture of the cake. From then on someone else had my camera. I was too busy being the hostess.

Now that the Shower is over, on with the other festivities... Dress fittings, Rehearsal Dinner, Pedicure/Manicure date, Bachelorette Party, Brunch on the Wedding day and the Wedding itself. It's been a long year but it's nearly here. Only 40 more days..

Hey Kim and all the Bridesmaids,
You did a fabulous job. From your theme to the game we played to the food and tea you served..it was just so much fun. As the grandmother of the bride, I was awarded the teapot from the "cake" table so I didn't even have to play the game. You ladies could start your own business doing birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, showers and weddings....if you just had the time.
Love you.
