Wedding Bells

It is that time of year...weddings and graduations abound.  I was so happy to be able to open my home for a wedding shower for a young lady who is getting married on Memorial Day Weekend. Mary Carol is the daughter of my good friend, Amy.  Invited guests were ladies from our Sunday School Class and we had a wonderful time visiting and celebrating the beginning of a new season of life for Amy and Mary Carol.  Mary Carol is Amy's first child to be married and  that does make a big change in a family. The young couple will live nearby as they start their married life as young farmers.

I went with a pink and green theme, using some old glass serving pieces. The star gazer lilies just lit up the table.

I served little "pick up" desserts along with coffee punch. My friend, Deborah, helped by making some delish lemon blueberry bars as well as sharing her pretty table runner.

Here is a picture of the pretty bride and her mom.  They have two more weeks until the wedding so it will be a busy time for these ladies. Best wishes for a long and happy marriage Mary Carol!!

Congratulations to Mary Carol. She and her Mom are both beautiful. Those lilies are gorgeous! I know the shower was much appreciated.

Happy Mother's Day to you.
