A BRIDAL SHOWER

IMG_5650This past weekend my sister’s bridesmaids and I threw her a bridal shower tea party. It was a perfect Sunday afternoon with blue skies, warm weather, and lots of little bites for everyone to snack on while catching up and hanging out. I got my best friend, Mary Seidel of Poppies & Peonies, to do the flowers, filling vintage tea pots with potted plants and tea cups with bright ranunculus. We covered the table with a beautiful vintage tablecloth Andre and I received as a present for our one year wedding anniversary. It was lovely.
