Bonjour, Bridal Shower!

What a perfect day for a Ladies Tea in the garden!
Callan's bridal shower was so much fun.
We had tea, croissants, little watercress sandwiches
and French macarons--bien sur!
The pistachio ones were my favorite.

Here we are--mother and daughter in the center.
Oh, of course, I was there with my daughter's new mother-in-law, the talented and fun, Winnie!
I adore her!  And Callan is one lucky gal to have a sister-artist for a mom-in-law.  A true kindred spirit!
Callan has the prettiest friends!  They all look like flowers in a French garden.  Here are just a few of the pretty girls at the party.

And of course, Callan received lots of wonderful gifts.  There were cookbooks (Callan loves to cook!)  Retro aprons, ceramic bowls, a cookie jar, and lingerie--oooh la la!  She's a gal after my own heart.
Her bridesmaids--Liz, Molly, Tracey and Merridith made the most fabulous hat out of the ribbons and bows.  This crazy hat was really hysterical and fabulous.  Afterall, we had MICA grads creating it!
Oh, but I didn't tell you about the most delightful surprise!  Yes, Jerry, Callan's beau, suddenly showed up with a bouquet of flowers and a kiss for the blushing bride-to-be!  Ah, young love!

More soon!  xo Jamie

    I hope that you are getting rested up for the big event!
    Remember to tuck a lacy hanky in your bag...if you are anything like me there will be joyful tears on the day!
