This blog will merge my passion for creating, crafting, sewing, schooling, tablescaping and trying out tech toys. It used to be called CJ's Extemporaneous Effusions, but I kept forgetting how to spell "extemporaneous."
All things yellow and yummy, thanks to family aunts, grandma, and cousins! What a lovely bridal shower they created this Saturday for my future-daughter-in-law.
Entry table, invitation and engagement photo
Outside to the beautiful long table, adorned with yellow, white and green floral arrangements
Flowers gathered from the garden and some from local market. What I think I recognized: Forget-me-not, White Trilliums, Fleabande Daisy, Casablanca Lily (my favorite flower), Delphinium, Viburnum, and Hydrangeas.
Flower favor for each guest to take home.
Bar menu, Mango Lemonade, yellow peonies and jelly beans
Sideboard with silver bowls of yellow taffy. Love the simplicity of it.
Table begins to fill with luscious treats.
What are those lovely, lustrous plates, I see? That is no contemporary porcelain.
Limoges Haviland France, unpainted white. Perfection in design, delicacy and craftsmanship.
Cupcake tower made by putting two cake plates on top of one another. Why did I never think of that?!
The food table complete with croissants, deviled eggs, pineapple slices, and chicken salad. Lovely.
Behind the food table, the hostess displayed mounted photographs of wedding photographs of the bride and groom's parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents.
We all stand on the shoulders of loving families that began with loving marriages and weddings.
