On August 18, some of my favorite people from Huntsville held a wedding shower for yours truly. It was fabulous. What a wonderful time to mingle and catch up. Some guests attending I have lost touch with. Sad to see so many years go by without frequent contact. I truly believe it is the friends you have as children that shape you as an adult.
The shower was held at the home of my friend Stephanie H., who has an eclectic style and is a hostess with southern charm and grace. We started out by her pool with mimosas and proceeded in doors to escape the record-breaking heat of over 100 degrees.
Served inside was a delightful dish of Carol M’s famous chicken salad! The fruit cup on the side was made the old fashioned way with watermelon scooped out in cute little balls of sweetness! The drink of Choice…Sweet Tea of course!
After sweet tea and chicken salad I opened mountains of gifts. I have to say I get the prize for the best assortment of shower gifts! We did not have a “themed shower”, and it worked out well in my favor. Among some of the prize possessions was a wrought iron and tin beer tub, monogrammed apron, my favorite scent candle from the Southerness Candle company and cherished pieces of Kate Spade China just to name a few.
One more engagement party in September and then the Big Day! I can’t wait to blog about the Rehearsal Dinner, We are having it in a haunted old Antebellum House in Huntsville. Stay Tuned.
