A Shower During a Hurricane

I fully intended to post these pictures on Monday afternoon, or Tuesday morning, or Wednesday or even Thursday. Instead they’re going up on Friday. Opps.

Here are some shots of a bridal shower I hosted for my dear friend Mary. Despite the hurricane that brought heavy downpours that afternoon and a poorly timed food preparation schedule that resulted in my roommates hurriedly finishing things up as guests arrived (lesson learned and thanks friends), I was happy with end results.

[The armoire that typically holds our winter coats became the bar]

[I felt it only appropriate to serve bloody marys for Mary]

[Poppa Joe helped construct the Xs and Os during my last trip home]

[I spray painted kraft wrapping paper with chalkboard paint and labeled the goodies]

[And added a little stamp to the napkins which was also used on the invitations]

[Heart shaped cookie cutters from Sweet Estelle’s served as party favors]
