A bridal shower, and summer fun...

So it has been over two weeks since I last posted something. I never meant to take a break form blogging, it just sort of happened as I fell into bed to exhausted to do one more thing every night. I have been so busy trying to get so much done before we start back to school in July. My dear friend and neighbor hosted a bridal shower for her soon to be new sister. I helped her with the decor, party favors, and shopping. She has a new baby and no time to run around to every store imaginable looking for things. I LOVE planning parties and since I rarely have a chance to do it it was so much fun! We stayed up way to late to many nights to count. chatting, planning, and then decorating as the weekend arrived. The theme was cats and Paris, I think she pulled it off well. I heard the bride to be cried when she saw it!

This is the island focal point you see from the front door coming in to the party. Love those Eiffel towers and the love sign together!

Fruit arrangement made by a friend. I don't have pictures of the food table as I didn't stay for the shower but I heard it turned out lovely!

The gift table, we put the coffee table on top of the train table for height and put the table cloth over it. A perfect way to store all the furniture out of the way!

Coffee table arrangement in the family room.

Party favors. I made the bags from an idea from, they were so much fun and really easy to do. They hold nail polish, a nail file, chocolates, and Jordan almonds.

Champagne glass charms my friend made. She served raspberry champagne and pink lemonade.

Decor on the cake table. Those balls are vintage Christmas ornaments!

We have also been busy with injuries, swimming, catching bugs, eating watermelon and ice cream, washing cars, organizing the yard sale things, going to birthday parties, having a birthday party for Gwen, bicycling, cooking, hanging our clothes on the line, gardening, hail storms, playing, and falling asleep in the middle of the floor from exhaustion. Yes, so far it has been a great summer! Oh and if your wondering, yes I have pictures you'll just have to be patient. :)
