linda's bridal shower:

March 16, 2010

it was a beautiful sunny saturday afternoon when i attended a lovely bridal shower for a dear friend linda. (remember we did her invites?) it was hosted by her sisters and rubyellen provided the sweet decor and favors.

bunting.
bed.
so cute.
a pinata. and linda's cute mom, covering little soul's face from the wind.

lin!
the beautiful bride to be, playing the underwear game.

garden.
the shower was held at linda's mom's house, in her pretty garden. her garden was so legit - totally blogworthy ;) she had about persimmons, avocados, lemons, oranges, apples, grapefruit, and several other fruits and vegetables. i said she should start a garden blog!

pinata.
this was the prettiest pinata you ever did see. made by ruby, it was layered with vintage book pages. there were some issues breaking it open, so jenny gave it a try too, while linda held it. hilarious.

soul.
beautiful little soul. she hardly made one peep!
i hope my kids are as good as her.

friends.
sweet friends.

sisters.
sweet sisters. i wish i had sisters!

fish table.
there was a fish table in linda's house, it was so awesome!
fish inside a glass table: how cool is that? hehe.

yum! red velvet cupcakes in a jar. my favorite!

34 hello's:

  32. This is a lovely pinata! I bought one today and was bemoaning my lack of time to make a homemade one like you pictured here. I may be posting a photo to my blog (with a link back to you of course!) I hope to make a pinata like this one one day.
