We hosted a co-ed wedding shower for a friend and had a great time. My mom came by in the afternoon to pick up both kids AND the dog. I'll admit that it was strange to have such a quiet house for a couple hours! I got all dressed up for the occasion and thoroughly enjoyed the wine :)
For the weeks leading up to the party I've been working on a "secret fondant project" which some of you may have noticed by my Facebook status updates. Well now is the time for the big reveal!
We asked the guests to give the couple a gift that corresponds to a piece of marital advice. We gave them these...
We gave the bride-to-be a pair of crystal candle holders and we gave the groom some diamond shaped crystal paperweights. I had a lot of fun shopping and preparing for the party and also really enjoyed taking pictures of everything along the way :)
