Showered With Love on Friday Pretties

I have a friend who is more than just a friend.
She is a "Sister Friend" 
I Love, Love, Love her and her funny,
spontaneous family
They are all so much Fun!
We both have three children all
 around the same ages.
Since we have been friends for about 15 years,
we have watched each others kids grow up.
Well, her oldest son is the first of 
all of our friend's kids to get married.
And, this post is about the wedding shower 
that four friends and I gave
 her soon to be daughter-in-law.
Renee, from Sewn With Grace,
 was in charge of the
 invitations, flowers and cupcakes, 
along with the recipe and 
advice cards that each guest
was to fill out for the bride.

I hosted the shower at my house.
It was so much fun to prepare for!
And, not only the bride, 
but the families of the bride and groom
were all so gracious,
 and thanked us over and over.
We tried to tell them that it was 
Our Pleasure!

Pepper & Salt Say I Do

Ruth, Kathy and Kelly were 
the other three hostesses.
These girls provided lots of yummy food.

Ruth brought these adorable drink dispensers.
She made the cute little signs. 
So Festive! 

The beautiful and sweet 
Bride-To-Be is the third girl, 
in the back, from the right.
All of the rest of these cute girls 
are her bridesmaids.

These lovely ladies are the
 Bride and Grooms families.
Michelle, the bride, is the young lady
 in white on the left. 
Next to her in the jean jacket
 is her mom, Kim. 
And the other young lady 
in front of Kim
 is her sister, Kelli.
The rest of the gang are 
my sister-friend Debbie, 
the Mother in law to be,
who is in the front on the right.
In the front left is her sister Robin.
Above Debbie in the khaki
 is Debbie's Mom, Elaine, 
her sister, Susie,
 and Debbie's daughter, Callie.
I don't think that it's fair
 that these two families
Received so many "Cute Genes".
But, they did!
Callie's birthday was the day of the 
shower so to honor her
Renee decorated a special pink cupcake
 and we sang Happy Birthday.
Oodles and oodles of gifts!

Just one of Renee's amazing creations!

This is a very special gift from Michelle's
soon to be Father-in-Law and Uncle-in-Law,
who both happened to be named Paul.

"Buck Ware"
And, not just one set of service for 8,
but two sets!
Michelle happens to be a hunter so it really
was a very heartfelt and thoughtful gift.
I thought endearing,

Ruth provided the adorable favors.
"The Bride To Bee"

This young, and very sweet couple,
who became friends in fourth grade,
(how cute is that?!?)
are so loved, prayed for 
and have so much support!
What an amazing way to start 
your young lives together!

Many, Many Blessings Michelle and Kaj!
You Are Loved!

Also, make sure to join Sherrie's

What a PRETTY shower!! You all did such a wonderful job!! A very talented, and beautiful bunch of ladies you all are.

What an exciting time it is when all the kids start getting married!! :) Been there, it is SO fun!!
I also have a sister-friend named Debbie. I have been friends with her since our oldest daughters were in kindergarten. We both have three daughters. Her youngest daughter and our middle daughter have always been the best of friends. It has been one of the greatest gifts from God I could have asked for! God is SO good to bless us like that!!

Joyce, your photos are stunning! I love all the shots of the flowers. Very lovely!

Happy weekend to you!
