My son proposed to his beautiful fiancee over a year ago and they have been preparing for their August wedding since then. Despite all of the preparations, their upcoming wedding didn't actually seem real to me until this past weekend when we had a shower for the bride-to-be. It was more than just a chance to try and surprise her and shower her with gifts. It was a chance for the two families to come together and share the excitement and mutual love we have for this young couple.
The bride-to-be's chair is decorated, the gifts are wrapped beautifully...now all we need is the guest of honor!
And here she is !
I was responsible for creating the favors. I used tissue paper and mod podge to decorate the pots and then planted herbs in each one. I was happy with the finished results and glad that I could be a part of the special day.
Here is the happy couple, holding their 'wedding' bears. The shower allowed us a chance to shower them both with love and well wishes. And now we are ready for the BIG day!
