This past weekend I had the pleasure of being a hostess for a bridal shower. Christy, the beautiful bride, is getting married this fall and requested a "British Tea Party" for her shower. Well, when you are planning a shower with fabulous people... you get a fabulous shower! Christy, I hope it was everything you dreamed of and more importantly, I hope and pray your marriage is joyous and centered in Christ. It was such a blast celebrating with you.
The shower was held at my mom's house and the hostesses did a great job of using their talents. It was such a great group to work with because we each brought such special skills to the table.
Christy's guestbook was the white tea pot. Everyone signed for a special keep sake.
We had 2 tea bars. This was the Iced Tea bar, including peach, strawberry hibiscus, regular, (I forgot the 4th), and cucumber-lemon-spearmint water.
We also had a hot tea bar featuring 3 different types of teas.
The bride's new last name will be Salch. So Erin thought of the adorable saying for over the dessert bar. I was tasked with making this "Sweet and Salch-y" banner and others. I love how it turned out, and now I'm ready for more!
I made a doily picture banner from engagement pictures.
And my favorite:
We rearranged my mom's house and pulled out all of her antique furniture from the formal living room for the special occasion. Christy, Erin, and I were not allowed to play on this furniture when we were little, so this was a big deal. :)
Here are all the hostesses in our British Tea hats. Abigail is wearing my hat from when I was little. (She was so happy to be there)
We had to get our Weber/Feemster Girls picture -- hands on the hip and everything.
Happy wedding shower Christy. You are dearly loved!
