shower photos

as promised, here are photos from my sister's bridal shower

Here are the invites, along with the actual invite I included
a recipe card; the larger of the blue slips was a cute little poem
about bringing a recipe and the smaller has the couples website on it

The theme for this shower was "dessert & wine tasting"

Hopefully you are drawn to the cake I had made (wish I could say that I made it!)
We had a cake made for the 4 bridesmaids, the junior bridesmaid, and
the 2 flower girls... they were so cute!
here is the dessert that I made (sorry I forgot the before pic!)
It's called Chocolate Elegance
If anyone is interested in the recipe let me know

And THIS was my favorite gift for the bride! I had all of the bridesmaids bring a bottle
of wine, I needed a total of 6 bottles. Below the picture you'll see the rhyme that
went along with the bottles...

Wedding Night

The night you have dreamed of is finally here
The future surrounds you with hope and yet fear
You’ve wanted so long to find your perfect mate
Sip this wine and toast this perfect date
The night is meant for you to share
Enjoy each other – a perfect pair!!

First Fight

When fights occur and tempers get hot
Pour a glass and be thankful for what you’ve got
If you always agreed it would certainly be a bore
And by asking for Emily's hand Lonnie is surely
in for more!

First Anniversary

Been married a year, where did the time go?
No longer newlyweds, now you are pros
Hope the days found you in good health and
good spirit
Keep saying I love you –
one always needs to hear it!
Now toast this first date, it’s certainly not the last
And as you build your future don’t ever forget
the past!

First Dinner Party

Open your home to entertain and eat
Catch up with old friends and new ones to meet
When the night is over share this bottle of wine
But don’t sit down yet – it’s clean up time!!

Christmas Eve

A wise man said wine is better than beer
And now is the season for lots of holiday cheer
So pop the cork and relax a bit,
And when the night is through,
Kiss goodnight, close your eyes
And Santa will be good to you!

First Baby

The news that a baby will soon share your life
will make you a mother, not only a wife
You’ll see it through good times and sometimes
through bad
Emily the loving mother
and Lonnie the dearest dad
Sadly Lonnie must drink this one alone, and Emily with an empty glass
Sit back and relax – nine months will quickly pass!

Love the individual cakes, and the wine basket. What a great idea!
