Loveliness

Friday evening we were surrounded by much loveliness here at our house. Emily hosted a bridal shower for a friend and I got to come along for the ride.

We spent the day sewing, cleaning, cooking, and setting things up.
Em, of course, did all the flowers.

The table looked very elegant with all the decorations and chair covers:
Flowers were everywhere:

We had a scrumptious dinner of goat cheese stuffed chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto, salad, brown rice medley, green beans and rolls. (I didn't get a picture).

Dessert was delicious. Personal sized chocolate cakes covered in ganache:

And a full-sized vanilla cake topped with fruit:

Yes, this cake tasted as good as it looked!


At the last minute, we came up with the ideal theme for the party and prizes for the games. Tomorrow I'll post on what we sewed up.
