Her Beach-Theme Bridal Shower
Would it be possible for us to host the bridal shower in the new house? This was the burning question as we began to unpack hundreds of boxes and settle into our new home in Texas. I had about six weeks to prepare for the bridal shower and my goal was to at least have the downstairs ready for a party! Whew!!! I think I accomplished my task at hand.....
It was showtime!

We all had a ball! We sipped cool beverages on a hot summer afternoon, we ate scrumptious food and tried out new recipes, we played games and laughed as we learned more about the bride and groom and their own love story! Family and friends.....laughter and good food....makes for good memories, doesn't it?
