Happy Monday folks!
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Tommy and I had a busy Saturday, followed by a more mellow Sunday.
On Saturday we hosted a surprise wedding shower for our friends Allison and George at our house. In truth it was truly a surprise for Allison all-around — she had no idea this was even happening. George knew there was a shower happening but that is all he knew, – no other details were given to him.
I had been working on this surprise shower with my fellow cohorts for several weeks – Siccola, one of Allison’s good friends, and Joyce, George’s mom.
Details of the shower
Gift theme: Stock the Bar (we asked guests to buy the couple gifts related to “stocking their bar at home” – wine, wine and cocktail glasses, cheese spreaders, etc).
Color theme: Purple and Gray (purple is one of their wedding colors)
Time of day: Brunch O’Clock – (we served brunch during the shower since brunch is Allison’s favorite meal)
Menu: Bloody Mary Bar, Mimosas, quiche (Spinach & Parmesan and Skinny Crab), fruit salad, potato salad, salmon, hash browns, sausage & bacon, pancakes, omelettes, and cupcakes.

I only managed to take two photos during the shower.
Have you ever thrown a wedding shower?
