showering laura.

yesterday, my aunt ellen and aunt andrea hosted a lovely bridal shower for my sister, laura. the beautiful bride-to-be got some great gifts to start stocking her home as a married woman, and we, the guests, were treated to good conversation and outstanding food.

seriously, my aunts know how to throw a shower. fancy food on fancy silver platters and pretty glass plates. no paper here. also, i love ellen's house. it's so comfortable and sweet smelling and just...great. it's one of those homes that makes you feel welcome, but you can't put your finger on why. a big part of it has to do with the fact that being with her reminds me of my grandmother. that warms my heart.

laura (the bride), brittany (the 20-year best friend and bridsmaid) and kyla (the cutie butt daughter) checking out gifts.

laura with her personalized wedding art. from where? etsy, of course. from who? moi, of course. names, wedding date and a crossword puzzle theme. taylor loves crossword puzzles. laura loves etsy. the colors match her planned bedroom.

pretty girl reading cards.

a 4-place setting of her dishes was under this pretty butterfly wrapping.

the loot.
