We had so many family members and friends come and celebrate with Mikasa (my oldest daughter) at her bridal shower on Tuesday night.  Clarissa, the maid-of-honor, planned the fun games and activities while my sisters, mom and I took care of the food!

Mikasa…the bride to be…

The “spread”….we wanted to really treat our friends and family to supper that night, so we made sure we had all basis covered!  Spinach dip, salads, Mexican food, lettuce wraps, sandwiches all covered this table.  Then for dessert, I had another table holding a huge chocolate fountain and all the dippers you can think of!  Cake, cream puffs, squares, cookies, strawberries, etc. etc. etc…the only problem is…I forgot to take a picture of it!! 

As Mikasa opened her gifts, her friend and bridesmaid Ashley made her the traditional bride’s “bow paper hat”.  It turned out lovely don’t you think???

I do have a card to show you, believe it or not!!

These cute yet simple cards are for Mikasa to send to all those that send her and Kevin wedding gifts.  I got together with 4 of my stamping friends and they helped me put about 100 of these together.  It’s amazing how much time a simple card can take when you have to make them times 100!  I’m so grateful I had help!!

We made them note card size but still big enough to send through the mail system.  The colors used are Melon Mambo, Yoyo Yellow and Only Orange (both now retired SU colors).  The stamp came from the set Short and Sweet.  The flowers were made using a retired punch but I loved using the adhesive backed rhinestone jewels – so handy!!

Well, the wedding is now 15 days away so you may not hear from me until after the wedding – it’s a bit time consuming to say the least to plan this big event.  I will be back with lovely photos for you though so stay tuned!!

TTFN!

Natasha
