Bridal showers are such a special event in a young woman's life! This past weekend Abigail, my soon to be daughter-in-
law love was the guest of honor at a SPRING BRIDAL SHOWER...
The theme of the shower was...
FEATHER HER NEST
The weather outside was more like a winter wonderland! It was snowing and blowing and dark and bitter cold. But we brought spring inside for Abby's shower!
A little vignette started the food line...
We used glass luncheon plates. I love having a sturdy plate! Plastic utensils were corralled in garden pots in a wire holder. Moss was placed under each pot for a little extra organic feel.
A porcelain basket filled with paper straw held napkins...
A little sign welcomes everyone to the table...
Two large glass jugs filled with spring blooms anchored the centerpiece on the table...you can see that we also hung "puffs" from the ceiling for added fun! I wanted them to represent a spring sky!
A cloche filled with eggs adorned the center of the table to continue the whole spring nest theme.
The length of the table was filled in with lanterns and chippy candlesticks and nests...
So everyone would know what they were eating, eggs had the names of each dish written on them. They were nestled in little garden pots and placed next to the corresponding food.
When the guests arrived, just before we were ready to eat I was able to snap a few pictures with the spread on the table.
Here is Abigail, the love of my son's life... a sweet little southern belle... with a splash of sass!
