My bridesmaid Arin, and her mom made all of the food and it was absolutely delicious. Because of an invitation mixup, we ended up changing the shower to my parents' house, so unfortunately they had to bring over all of the food and decorations.
I didn't get a picture of all the yummy food after it was put out, but I did remember to take a picture of all the presents before I opened them.
We played a couple of games before opening the presents. One was a how well do you know the bride type game. Everyone had to answer questions about what my favorite color, band, etc was. I didn't even know some of the answers! haha I'm not really one to pick favorites. The other was famous couples in history. You had to complete the couple after Arin said the first name. She ended up giving out prizes in a really cute way. She had little bundles of flowers in a vase, and the winner had to pick one. There was a tag tied around the stem with a number on it that went with a prize. It was a neat way to do it.
Then we moved on to presents =]
Our friends and family really spoiled Mr. T and I. Here are some of my favorites for the day.
more options here. And I love the planter...I can't wait to get it into our backyard. We got one of our silverware sets...it's service for 4. Inside the blue box is a gorgeous crystal bowl. A woman I've known for almost my whole life got it for me, and inside the card she said she got one as a young bride and thinks of the woman who got it for her every time she uses it and that she hopes the same would happen for me. I told her most of my childhood memories are tied to her so there's no way I could forget about her.
We also got a meat thermometer, foldaway griddle, cookie sheets, pyrex pans, electric can opener, serving platters, a second sleeping bag, lots of cheap kitchen stuff to take camping, a folding step stool, a beverage dispenser, and some other awesome things.
And the last thing, that I didn't actually get to open, and I don't have a picture of:
A KITCHENAID MIXER!
I'm so excited =] My aunt came straight from her daughter's house from visiting her new grandson, so she didn't have a chance to get it from her house. But it's from her, her daughters, and my great-aunt. She's going to bring it to the wedding. I can't wait to see it. I actually don't even know what color it is. I'm registered for the stainless steel one, so we'll see.
I've got just a couple more pictures to share with you from the day.
post awhile ago. I was actually cutting and sewing all of those handles the morning of the shower. Just a little stressful!
That's about it! Sorry this post was such a long time coming. It's been half finished in my drafts for awhile now.
