This bride-to-be is basically family as her brothers are not only close friend’s of my husband’s but a brother in law as well making our families very close. Always happy to see her, we share so many holidays and special occasions together. When she became engaged I was ecstatic for the couple and thrilled to be a part of hosting this joyous occasion. This shower was a group effort between the mother of the bride and one of the bridesmaids. This rustic bridal shower was inspired by the style of her wedding with wood, lace, and
This garden party was to celebrate a dear friend turning 30. My co-hosts; her husband and a friend, planned a day of relaxing with pedicures and a movie that ended with this surprise party. We thought it would be a wonderful way to celebrate this expecting mom who loves to garden. I was so glad we were able to surprise her. The party was held in the beautiful garden of my friend and cohost. This made a picturesque setting for an outdoor summer soiree for this lovely lady.
