Kayla's Bridal Shower 6/03/17

Kayla and Nathan's wedding shower was scheduled for April 29th, but due to an island tragedy earlier that week, we postponed the shower until a later date. After their wedding on May 20th, we decided to get the calendar out again and find a date to reschedule the shower. June 3rd seemed to be our best option, and in spite of all the comings and goings of everyone, two weeks after the wedding, we hosted the shower! The shower turned out so beautiful, the food was delicious, the attendance was good (considering all that were away with previously made plans), and the generosity of everyone still blows me away! 

I have taken the least amount of pictures lately, but here are a few I got as the shower got started....

"PLANT these seeds and watch them BLOOM 
just like the LOVE of the BRIDE & GROOM!"

shower favors: seed packets

Sweet Treats: Trifle Desserts & Cupcakes
The trifles were a variety of strawberry, mint chocolate, lemon blueberry, & chocolate turtle and the cupcakes were made by Trisha...YUMMMM!!

The gift table was brimming over!! 

Setting up the food table....It's all about the FOOD!!! 

Chicken Salad Cups/Sandwiches
Hot Crab Dip
Taco Salad
Shrimp Pasta
Lil Smokies
Onion Dip 
Chips & Crackers
Jello Salad
Fresh Fruit w/Fruit Dip
Fudge/Peanut Butter Candy/Bon-Bons
Punch Bingo (Barbara Annette), can you match the bride & groom? (Jennifer M.), 
person who picked the only [wild flower] seed packet (Hedy).

..........make a wish!!!!

I can't thank my family and friends enough for their help with the food, decorating, and cleaning up! The wedding was planned for November, with all things FALL in mind as far as decorating, but once the wedding date was moved up to May, we switched gears to all things SPRING and had to speed things up quite a bit. The months of planning we thought we had turned into weeks!!  I'm so happy everything turned out so beautiful and so many people came out for the wedding and shower. The outpouring of love that has been shown to Kayla and Nathan has simply overwhelmed me. Thanks again to everyone! XOXO
