Bridal shower

Photobucket
Saturday afternoon my Tia Gail threw me a wonderful bridal shower. It was set up under a gazebo that is across the street from where we are getting married, and it was the perfect day for it! There was blue sky, swallows were flying all around, and that weekend a car show was in town so about a dozen of the most amazing 1950s cars drove by all in a darling line. I kept saying "I want that one!"

Of course there was lots of great food, and yummy cake, and a table full of the best gifts. Among other things, I received lots of blue kitchenware, the cutest apron, and my great grandmothers pyrex mixing bowl. I'll have to do a little kitchen photo shoot soon, it looks really cute!
Such a fun afternoon, thank you everyone who set it up and attended!

What fun! Your shower sounds like it was a smashing success, right down to the vintage car drive-by. And yay for old Pyrex! I have the vintage aqua "Amish" motif set, and I love them. I feel like such the perfect 1950s housewife when I use them. Love the dress you chose, as well! I hope your wedding preparations are going well - I went through all that last fall and as stressful as all the planning was, it was such an exciting and memorable few months and I hope yours is too! Have fun!
