March 26th Day Two of Our US Adventure....A Bridal Shower

 
 
So today was the much anticipated Bridal Shower.
We have seen these on films, but never been part of one, Teen One especially was looking forward to it.
It was easy to spot which house we were visiting!
 
 
The skies were beautiful, showing off the typical New England clacker board house...
I never cease to be bowled over by the simple beauty of this classic style.
 
 
 
The front door was beautifully adorned....
 
 
 
...as was every corner of the house with these beautiful fresh roses...
 
 
....the pink theme continued in the hallway....
 
 
 
...garlands festooned the door ways...
 
 
 
...every corner held a surprise...
 
 
 
 
 
...even the soft drinks were pretty...
 
 
 
 
...this strawberry and basil infused water was my favourite...I really really want to find one of these drink dispensers to bring home with me...
 
 
 
...this was the start of the present table, which increased considerably as the guests arrived....
 
 
....these cupcakes were original...complete with silver wedding rings.
 
 
 
Food was "brunch" and there were so many unusual and scrummy foods on offer I had to sample them all!!
 
 
 
I didn't manage to get a photo of the table when it was completely laden...but this granola was delightful and I had to go back for seconds!
 
 
 
After the food it was time for some fun....questions about the bride and groom...
 
 
 
...then Design your perfect husband!
 
 
There were presents for the winners...
 
 
 
...all pink of course!
 
 
 
We learnt that each bow that is taken off the gifts are made into a decoration with a paper plate as the base...the bride then wears it as a hat or it is tied into a bouquet...today it was a hat!
As the ribbons are taken off the presents these are collected...all uncut ones represent how many children the couple will have!
If this comes true, then this couple will have six bouncing babies!
 
All in all we had a wonderful day!
It ended by going back to friends for a meal...which was delicious!
It has been a great start to our adventure and we are so thankful for all our US friends who make our stay so special.

Today's Promise:
   I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
