Bridal Shower

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.

  3. CJ, Congratulations! The bridal shower table is just gorgeous in the yummy yellow, green and white. Everything is so pretty and I especially like the family photos. What a sweet and loving memento of your family's love for each other.

  4. This is just the sweetest shower. I love the picture idea. And my wedding was pretty!

  5. Wow, what a fabulous long table!! I would love to hold a luncheon just like that. Thanks so much for stopping by,

  6. HI CJ! What a beautiful shower! They went all out and made such a lovely party! Congratulations on the upcoming marriage of the handsome couple!

  7. What a gorgeous table & setting for a shower! And what a wonderful idea to display & represent the families with the generations of photographs! Best wishes to your son & future DIL~

  8. Oh my, everything is beautiful. Such a gorgeous setting also. Love all the photos, such a great idea. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  9. So pretty with yellow and white - just lovely. I like the photos too!

  10. wow a totally lovely setting for such a beautiful shower. I love this setting, I'm sure she was thrilled.

  11. Okay, you made me giggle...thank you for the high praise about my tables. The bridal luncheon table is exquisite. I love the variety of shapes for the glass floral containers...and someone has a real knack for draping fabric down the center of the well done. I have a large collection of the Haviland Ranson, and I use it frequently. One of my favorite white china patterns. Have fun as the M.O.G. I was a M.O.G. and a M.O.B, too. I loved both opportunities. Thank you for sharing your special day. Cherry Kay

  12. Hi CJ,

    This is all just so lovely. I'm so impressed! Are those white snapdragons in one of your three pots outside? They are so tall! Your lawn is just beautiful; you must really enjoy spending time there.

    What a beautiful table you've set. I love the yellow tulle (or is it organdy) on the table and the vases of flowers. And those cupcakes made my mouth water!! I really liked the framed photos of your family ancestors and your sweet sentiment at the end of the post. How lucky your son and daughter-in-law are.

    Best of wishes to the bride and groom-to-be, and thanks for sharing!
