The entire month of April was taken up with my daughters Bridal Shower.....It was an affair to remember!
(I couldn't blog because I was afraid she would see it)
I have been collecting teacups for my daughters Bridal Shower
Since she was 15.....she's 26....a little crazy, some would say!
They were all so beautiful! My plan was to fill them with something, wrap them and give them away as favors. I thought it would be economical because I would be spending the money over a long period of time....WRONG! In my usual way.....IT SNOWBALLED!
My friend Judy, who is also my hairdresser,
has a daughter who is a pastry chef
and so we concocted this grand plan
for her to make the most delicious GOLDEN RAISIN SCONES....yum!
You can find her online at www.deliciousdelightsbakery.com
What else could you put in a teacup but scones!
Then we had to have the BEST teabags....and Mighty Leaf makes them!
My friend Kathy helped every step of the way....finding, washing, wrapping, packing etc.
The bridesmaids also helped put them together....
It would have been overwhelming to do it all by myself
They came out so beautiful!
So.... we had to wrap them....tags, ribbon, wrap and little scrapbooking glue dots to hold the teacup to the saucer.....and then the logistics....getting them there....
we had 7 boxes to transport....everyone had some in their car.
I have to say, we had a lot of laughs!
This is the one I kept
Everyone had such fun picking out their favorite cup.
I made teapot centerpieces and placed the cups around the teapots on each table so the women could pick the one they liked best....and not be "assigned" one.
It was such a success that the work and cost was secondary....
so many people called me to say it was the nicest shower favor they had ever received and best shower they had ever been to. I was elated to have pulled it off!
My daughter was pretty sure she was walking into her shower....
so she ran and got her hair and nails done....new clothes.....smokin hot shoes....
and came in looking as beautiful as she is inside and out!
But we did have more than one big surprise for her....
My sister and her daughters flew in from Arizona for the weekend.
Julie and Anna are Bridesmaids and she was so happy they were able to be there.
Having family share your most important days is priceless!
I had one more surprise for her
But I will blog about that next time.
