Showering the Bride

On May 3rd, my little brother will be getting married to the girl of his dreams - Erin.  It seems that only a short time ago they he proposed on a cruise ship in the middle of the Caribbean Ocean, and yet we are now less than 60 days from their big day.  I threw Erin a bridal shower to celebrate her upcoming marriage and provide an opportunity for the girls to gather and have some fun.

A beautiful bride-to-be and very generous gifts from loving family and friends.
Hard to believe so few days remain.

The sign was a creative find on Etsy, personalized with the wedding theme colors.  Also on the mantle were several pictures of Royce and Erin dating from their first high school prom to engagement pictures.

Me and my soon-to-be Sister-In-Law.
After a lifetime with only a brother, it sounds so funny to say that!

The food spread:
Mini Sandwiches - Hummus/Tomato/Basil and Avocado/Corn/Paprika
Fruit Skewers - Grapes, Pineapple, Strawberries
Desserts - Lemon bars and Brownie bites

Mom spent an incredible amount of time preparing a cookbook full of our favorite family recipes.
What a fantastic gift that will be sure to receive lots of use over the years.

We played several fun games - two truths and a lie, 20 questions about the bride, and celebrity hubby.  I might have even learned that my Grandma has multiple dream boyfriends!  It was a wonderful afternoon filled with lots of laughs, showering Erin with gifts, munching on tasty treats, and looking forward to a very near wedding.  I can't wait to celebrate with an even larger group in two months on their wedding day!
