Bridal Shower! :)

Here comes the bride .....
The Bride to be was happy and relaxed, and all the preparations proved worth it.
The table looked lovely (if I do say so myself ....). The floral arrangement was pink and white Hydranga - my favourite flowers, with white rose petals strewn on the table. The guests, family and friends talked and laughed and ate and I think everyone enjoyed themselves!

Mother of the bride (centre) with friends. Cousins, aunts and Great aunts also attended - many from out of town. THANKS for coming ladies. I was very happy to finally use my tea cup holders. We tiered two cake plates for the cupcakes, which were a big hit! We got out the Limoge China,  and served tea in the silver tea service from Lisa's Great grandmother B. One of her great aunts presented her with a memento, a tea cup from her great grandmother on the S side of the family, a really lovely and touching thought! We even had "fancy" pinwheel sandwiches - woohoo!!
 I used cupcake fabric and made a pie carrier as part of Lisa's gift. Of course I inserted a pie plate (minus the pie) in the carrier. I used insulated batting when making the carrier so it would hold the heat well. I never actually learned how to make a pie myself - maybe Lisa will be a better baker than me!

P.S. For those who read this blog regularly an update: Cotton by Post responded positively to my email re the "blank" gift card and honoured the card, so I got the three metres of fabric I had picked out! See ladies - it pays to complain - nicely!!
