To Have & to Hold ~
Love those words!
In this season of bridal showers
there isn't anything better
than helping friends and family
with planning their events!
Just a little party ~
Just a little bridal shower tea
through the internet
for my future
When you plan your bridal shower,
send out invitations
at least a month in advance
and a "save the date"
for the wedding date
even further out
so none of the party or guests
gets caught unaware.
When it is time for the bridal shower,
dress your table in lovely lace
and set out your finest china
in pretty spring colors.
Have a tea light candle or two
along with a festive bouquet
in the bride's favorite colors.
One thing I really wanted to do especially
was use monogrammed silverware.
For my children when they were young,
I found spoons that had their initials
on the handles.
We always used these as their ice cream spoons;
I always had an ulterior motive
and that was to use these special spoons
at a future bridal shower party...
|Love in the garden...|
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov'd,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved. ~
William Shakespeare, Sonnet 116
|lavender for love ~ playing with words...|
Plan a menu and share some fond memories
of your bride with her bridesmaids
with those in attendance.
Have a party game or two,
and then the bride~to~be opens her gifts
for all to see...
***Save all the ribbons and bows, threading them through
a paper plate
creating a keepsake "bouquet" of the day...
Happy Bridal Shower Day
getting married this year!
Blessings to you,
