The Wedding Shower

After days of yard work, housework, furniture rearrangement, and decorating, the day of Carrie's wedding shower finally came. This picture was taken just as the guests began to arrive. The tables looked pretty, the food was delicious, and a great time was had by all. Fortunately for me, it was a team effort and many hands made light work. Besides sharing the cooking, we were able to combine our plates and glassware to get enough for the party. We served a nice brunch (egg casserole, potato casserole, fruit salad, leaf shaped muffins, juice, coffee, mimosas). We had a little mishap with an exploding champagne bottle, but after a little mop up everything was fine.

And here is the quilt we made for Carrie. You can tell by the smile on her face how much she liked it. We always save the quilt to be opened last, kind of a finale to the wedding shower.

And here we all are together. Another happy chapter in the book of family quilts.

How lovely everything looked. Your table setting(s) were beautiful. And the quilt, oh my! Carrie and her new husband must be thrilled. Congratulations!

PS We had an exploding champagne bottle at a wedding (30+ years ago) but the cork hit the bride in the eye. She was not amused.

Everything looks so beautiful, and the group photo will be a great memento to be cherished forever (as well as the quilt of course)
