Garden Party Wedding Shower

Last weekend was Jenny's bridal shower at our home.

I have some lovely vintage-styled photography to share with everyone.

Grab a glass of punch and be our guest...





A day of happiness.

Enter the garden...






Jenny and myself...






Jenny and Chase, the groom, with our wedding gift to the couple (the buffet).






Now come down the stairs and join us in the backyard...






This rustic arrangement makes my heart pound.






Our hens were entertained (or provided visual entertainment)
and got their little coop decorated with their own flowers and bow.






And under the regal big top, guests dined and mingled.










And decorations glowed and fluttered.






These puffs took hours for me to create... but I l.o.v.e. them.












We did have a snafu with the caterer... they forgot to bring the vegetables...

and then brought them late, but we were already onto cupcakes and fun stuff.

Bridesmaids chat.










Love bears gifts











Have fun starting your future family (see my daughter's gift to Jenny)...
(she'll get the other when she becomes a mother).













An enchanting day.





Thank you for visiting today.

It is all beautiful. Love all the vintage touches too. Your little coop is darling. I hate mine behind the garage and want to move it into the back yard but poor hubby it means more work for him. It is functional but I cannot enjoy them back there unless I let them out which of course they love. I am going to save a picture of yours for inspiration.

What a lovely party, Andrea! You really did it up big. I love your rustic arrangement, the gate to your garden, and all the decorations.

I came over because of your comment on my blog, sugar, and I'm glad I did! WOW! I love what you did with that chair - painting it white and changing out the seat cover. Plus I love the little decoration at the very top of this blog post. I'd like to make one but have no idea where I'd put it in this house. Darling blog and ideas.
xoxo,
Connie

Hi Andrea, what a fabulous bridal shower. You did a great job. I love the picture of you two. You can tell that the bride to be is very much in love. Your gift to Jenny is gorgeous! Do I need to get remarried? lol! Oh, I love your urn at your garden gate also. Thanks for sharing this with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,
Jann

What a lovely wedding shower, Andrea. I got a few ideas for Nel's shower in a couple of months. There's so much planning to do, and it's been awhile since I gave a party. The picture of the two of you is so cute.
