Bridesmaid Luncheon

The weekend before the wedding I also held a bridesmaid luncheon for my lovely ladies. It is bittersweet to write this post now as the tea room it was held has actually burned down since. It was held at Anna Renae's Tea Room in Oakland, where I am from. The house had been around since the 1800s. It burned down in December and they still don't know the cause. However, I am so grateful I was able to have my luncheon there. Everything was decorated so perfect. One wall was painted to look like a old time street and the storefronts.

Even EG's (niece Eliza Grace) high chair was too cute!

All of my bridesmaids were there along with some of Tom's family from out of town and our mothers.

These are the cute bags I gave everyone and the gifts for the flower girls.

It was such a wonderful day with all of my closest friends and family!

Long Lost Blog?

Ok, so I didn't blog for a while because I didn't know if I should go back to blog about certain things or just start writing from the present...and well, then days turned into months and now I'm 7 months behind! Since I decided to write this blog as a mini-scrapbook for myself, I am going to go back and write about certain events that took place in the seven months so that I can remember.

First event I am going to write about is a wedding shower that my cousin Pattie, cousin Debbie and aunt Sandy threw for me at my grandmother Be's house. It was the weekend before the wedding and mainly just a way for my extended family to meet Tom's family. Pattie outdid herself on the decor. I thought it was soo cute. Everything matched the wedding colors. The food was yummy too!

Pattie also got some sort of dessert from a pastry shop in Jackson that was delicious and beautiful!

Below is my mom, me and my grandmother, Be.

Below are the shower hosts, my cousins Pattie and Debbie.

Pattie also had a "quiz" on info for me and Tom. Below are some the shower guests working hard...:)

I remember that Marta, Tom's sister, won. However, after looking at the picture below, it looks like she was cheating (in the pink)! :)

Finally, I opened MANY MANY wonderful presents. It was a great Sunday afternoon!
