Secrets Revealed

Last night was a great success!

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!

I made Bride and Groom Cookies!

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 :)

The weekend of celebrations has just begun and tonight is the Bachelorette party...
