An Afternoon Out...

Thanks to my mom and her willingness to watch my kids and the kids I babysit, I was able to go to my girlfriend's bridal shower.
And it was beautiful.
My new favorite one.
I came home and told my eldest daughter (who is only a tween) that she has to get married in the fall.
I love the colors!
They had me from the start when all the napkins were tied with white chocolate hearts. They know this mama well and so do my friends who gave me theirs too.

And the favors- I am speechless..... Okay, I'm back, but they were amazing! Homemade jams! There was pear and berry and peach. I choose the berry. And later I thought, I should of taken the pear! The jams said "berry much in love" and "perfectly peared"- do you love it?

They were set up so beautifully on the table.

And the cake was amazing! They even had cannoli in one of the layers. But, I didn't have a slice. Too full from my brunch and knew it was time to say no. Regretting it now as I look at this masterpiece.

This was my gift. I had seen a tutorial on how to make this dish towel cake and wanted to make one. As soon as I received my invite, I ordered the bride's dish towels to make it. I had fun making it and I love how it turned out.

And my food. Ham and cheese quiche. And whole wheat focaccia bread with eggplant and fresh mozzarella and roasted peppers- to die for.
I think women should only have brunch for their showers- it is the best food.
I meant to get a picture of myself, but forgot, I owe you one.

It was great to get out!
Enjoy your Sunday!
