Although we had a snowy wintery start to our spring…

The flowers are on cue.

It’s the stuff sonnets and songs are made of.

A Bridal Shower for Catie

Over the very cold and rainy weekend, I was able to escape the elements and enjoy a lovely bridal shower. The ambiance was light, floral and sophisticated. The centerpieces, freshly picked the night before, captured the essence of it all.

The bridesmaids all made baskets of various themes to serve as door prizes. Totally adorable!

The fare was brunch, a buffet of gorgeous and delicious early afternoon cuisine. Pastries, fresh fruit, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, cheesy topped hash browns, bagels and cream cheese, French toast and warm maple syrupโ€ฆ Iโ€™m getting really hungry.

My good friend Molly, Maid of Honor and the bride-to-beโ€™s sister is a highly skilled bakerโ€ฆ she made the cupcakes, lemon, white chocolate-raspberry and coconut.
