Sunday afternoon I enjoyed attending a bridal shower for the niece of one of my dear friends. It was held at the Old State Bank in Old Decatur.
Built in 1833, it housed the Tennessee Valley Branch of the State Bank. This building has stood on the bank of the Tennessee river for many years. This is not my photo but one taken on a sunny day. It was a bit over cast as we made our way to this historic venue.
My friend, Diane, and her niece, Allison. I loved the fact that Allison was wearing a corsage! Back in my days, the honoree and the hostesses all wore corsages.
I loved the decor..the quilts were family treasures, shared for the day.
We all gathered around the table as Diane welcomed everyone and prayed for Allison's marriage to be a long and happy one.
The food was delicious...
The chocolate covered strawberries were divine.
Carrot Cake cupcakes.
I loved this special picture...Allison and her fiancé along with her parents and grandparents wedding photos.
Opening gifts with her aunt and her mom on either side.
A lovely day to honor a special young lady. Allison said the shower and all the gifts made the wedding seem REAL! She will be tying the knot in June with all the love and best wishes of family and friends.
