Saturday was the perfect day to celebrate Katie's upcoming wedding. I have known Katie since she was a preschooler. She is the daughter of our Sunday School teacher and the ladies of our class were so excited to honor the bride before her June wedding. My friend, Deborah, opened her lovely country home for our party. Guests were welcomed with this blackboard on the front porch.
We put a banner up over the fireplace to note the gift area. The heart says, Soon to Be Mrs G.
Our table in the dining room...
Petit fours and some pretty flowers from Deborah's rose garden.
Sharon's vegetable tray! Isn't it just perfection?
Sharon's fruit skewers and dipping sauce.
We used the wedding invitation as decoration. We found the lace burlap at Walmart and used it on the table and on the mason jars.
A simple but beautiful centerpiece. I found the wooden G's in the gift wrap department at Target.
Blushing Bride punch was served along with Sunny Future( water with lemons). Coffee was also on the menu!
Katie, on the right is the blushing bride. She is pictured with her mom, Robin, and her sister, Allie.
Some of Katie's small group friends from church.
Some of our Sunday School ladies...
Deborah and me with Allie. She was in our small group for young women several years ago and we love her bunches. It is hard to believe she just finished her first year in college.
Deborah and Amy...
Our other hostess, Sharon, with Shelley, another guest. Everything was so pretty and we all had such a good time together. I am thankful for Sharon and Deborah and their willingness to help me with the shower. Katie is a lovely young lady who will start work here in Decatur in July while her fiancee, Jeremy, will be one of the youth ministers at our church! It was fun to hear her telling us about their new home and the choices she had made for colors etc. I can still remember how exciting it was to set up our first apartment 40 years ago!
I am posting my blog now as I have an 8 am dental appointment in Huntsville. Being the royal person I am, I will be getting a crown. Fortunately I have a massage scheduled for the afternoon so I can look forward to that while reclining in the nerve wracking dental chair!! Have a blessed day Blog Friends.
