“friend’s shower…”

I went to a bridal shower the other day of a young lady that was in the Band in high school with my older son…  Her Mom owned a “kitchen/bakery” for years in Tomball and made the best cakes, casseroles, and cookies anywhere!  So sorry it is not there anymore!  Anyway, both Mom and Daughter are very talented to say the the least.  These are just some iPhone pictures of the decorations that her cousin did for her…  They were beautiful!

The table, before everyone got to it…

They set up a simple canopy under the porch and huge these “lanterns…”  Some of these she made with crepe paper and wrapped them around her finger into roses…  I believe I remember that right…LOL…  When you are old you forget some things!

Here is a closer shot of the “lanterns.”  I realize this is not perfect photography, but what you can do with an iPhone still amazes me!

Lots of good stuff!!!

I did ask permission before I posted these, but hope I am not giving away any shopping secrets.  I think lots of this came from Hobby Lobby…

Her cousin did the board, it was so pretty!  This is all on the back porch of one of the brides Grandparent’s porch…
