Amanda's Shower!!!

It was a lovely day for Amanda's shower.
The weather was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. Here is the smiling bride with her new knives.

Everyone loved the cones that I made. I hung them on this cute iron tree that I found.



Here is Amanda with her friend Jackie. Jackie is one of the bridesmaids.

Cheers!!



Amanda and I. We are actually the same height, but my heals were higher today.
Aren't those the cutest containers for the lemonade, water, and ice tea??


Chocolate fountain, need I say more? Amanda and her Nana. (my mom). Hope you enjoyed these scenes from a wedding shower.
A fun time was had by all. Amanda had a great day, and got a lot of lovely gifts.
Thanks everyone, especially Jen!! Good job with the shower!!

You lucky girl to have all those shade trees!

Your tables are so pretty with the little bouquets and sparkly confetti. And the blue lanterns were so festive, love those!

Your tussie mussies are just a show stealer, they all tuned out beautifully.

First, thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I have actually visited yours before and it is very charming!

I don't know where in Southern California you are located, but I grew up in Long Beach. When I saw the style of your home and the cinder block fence, I immediately felt at home. This is so California! You really have a nice backdrop of trees as well.

The personal touches at the party are beautiful. The cones look awesome on the iron tree! What a find! I love the beverage dispensers! (I have a Martha Stewart 2 and 1/5 gallon glass barrel with wooden handles.)

I am the Women's Leader at my church and we have had chocolate fountains many times–– always with rave reviews! Women don't need a better invitation to indulge!

I know that I would have loved attending your party! I'm sure your guests won't soon forget their visit!

Best Blessings,
KJ
