Bridal Shower

I made this card for daughter...she isn't "in to" vintage...I think she liked it...

We had a nice storm before the shower started and the power went OUT!!! I was busy getting candles out....and then the power came back on! Thankful!!! So, I forgot to take some before photos of the few decorations I put up...sometimes things don't go as planned!

 God mother, daughter, Grandgirl and me...this was taken after the shower...I didn't take many photos...Daughter's God mother help hostess the shower. Not as many showed up as expected, so lots of left overs, except for the chicken dip. Grandgirl is into making "funny" faces in all the photos...stinker!!!

Food: cake balls, cashews, M&M's, fresh fruit and watermelon, cucumber sandwiches and buffalo chicken dip. Food's she likes. The buffalo chicken dip: 1 large can chicken meat, 1~ 8 oz  cream cheese, combine and either melt in microwave or in oven 350 for 30 minutes and add  hot sauce or buffalo sauce to taste! A winner every time!!! I use about 1/2 of a small bottle! YUM!!!

My flowers took a "hit" with this long and cold winter. I only had a few flowers on my peonies bushes :(

We did go to a couple of estate sales this I'll "show N tell" soon! Just smalls :)

Everything looks great! I do not think bridal showers are too popular anymore. I gave my niece one three years ago, invited by snail mail over 35 people, and only the bridal party showed up. Most did not send a gift or even their RSVP that they could not come. The only showers that seem to work are when the bride's or groom's church friends host the shower. That is the way it is down here in Louisiana. But I am definitely going to try that dip recipe! Sounds yummy! Hugs, Linda@Wetcreek Blog

Your tables look so lovely. I would panic if the power went glad it came back. Your dip sounds good!! Bet you are somewhat relieve that the shower is over.

The table looks delicious!!

I visited a few occasional sales this weekend and then headed down to Rochester to celebrate my Mom's 80th birthday!!

For once, we didn't lose power during a storm!!! The lights did flicker though......Have a great week.

The shower food looks sooo good (and pretty), Deb! I bet you had a real nice time!
I'm glad that you were able to hit those estate sales. I saw that there were a few good looking ones, but I resisted. It wasn't easy! lol

Looks like fun, especially since the power came back on. Sorry about those who didn't show, more food and fun for the rest of you. Beautiful card.

I make that chicken dip, we love it. Always a hit at parties, especially hubby's work parties.

It looks like a wonderful shower. I am sorry that you lost power at all-that must have kind of freaked you out for a moment!
That dip sounds wonderful-never heard of it before but will try it here.
Hope you had a nice Father's Day Sunday- xo Diana

Looks like a fun day! So glad you got the power back, but I know you would have made it fun even with candles!

Such a beautiful shower and the food looks amazing! Your card is a beautiful keepsake for your daughter. You do such amazing work on your cards. Can't wait to see what estate sale goodies came home with you. We were in Detroit visiting family and hit five estate sales! My husband is so addicted now. Hugs!

Hi Deb, lovely shower setting and the recipe for the dip sounds so good.
You girls are beautiful and took such a nice pic even with your sweet grands funny face. It's the age I think. She is a cutie!
Your daughter is beautiful.
What a pretty peony. Mine never came up this year. I think the winter here in Texas was just too cold.
Glad you got to some estate sales too.
Have a great week.

Everyone looks so lovely in the pic! The food looks yummy and the dip sounds the same...yummy!
Like your vintage card! What a treasure for your daughter!

LBP said...

Yum, your food table is making he hungry and it's only 8:30 in the morning and I'm wanting chicken dip! I hate it when people don't show up or send regrets, it's just rude.

Your daughter looks radiant and I love the card you made!

I hit some great yard sales this weekend and blogged about them this morning!



Faye said...

I was sort of watching for a post, I thought of you all day with the rain and the wind and was hoping everything went alright. The card you made is lovely, your daughter looks so much like you!
So that's why I have very few buds on the peonies!
