Last weekend my sister hosted a bridal shower for her soon to be sister-in-law Stephanie at our house. My sister threw me a baby shower when i was pregnant with Bobby on my lawn with a yummy brunch and it ended up being one of the nicest showers i have had, so we wanted to re-create that vibe for Stephanie. A blessing with her friends and family...and amazing food doesnt hurt!
but man oh man...was it hot! for long beach...it was like 90 degrees...which is hot here...and my house has no A/C and the oven was on...and the stove...and even in the shade i was sweating. but it turned out so lovely and so many women remarked how nice it was to enjoy time together not filled with activities...i agree! such a nice lovely girly time together.
the theme was strawberries and i thought Sara did such an amazing job not getting lost in the theme, but nodding to it...strawberry spinach salad, strawberry shortcake and a whole lot of sliced strawberries to put in yogurt or crepes...plus strawberry lemonade and some yummy adult beverages as well.
Remember this post? i have been obsessing over those hanging vases and wanted to re-create the look, so i have been saving old pear jars from Trader Joe's (my boys LOVE pears...and they help keep you regular, so i love them too) for a while now and got some twine and a super glue gun and went to town on them. it turned out even better than i imagined and i have been enjoying them being up all weekend long.
despite the heat, it was a lovely day and i think the bride-to-be was super happy with her (soon to be) SIL's outpouring of love. and i was super happy with my sister's cleaning of all the dishes ;) anytime you want to have a party here sara...just let me know!
