From start to finish, the shower my new sisters threw for me could not have gone more perfectly. My maid-of-honor and mom got along swimmingly as I was introduced to the many incredibly sweet friends of the family, who all had nothing but the warmest things to say. An elegant affair had taken place the night prior, and there were gorgeous big, tall mercury glass candles and coupled with big, gorgeous white blooms and sparkly crystal lights. The tables for my special day were adorned with exquisite, sunny concoctions of yellow roses, moss and a nest and egg, which sat atop a glass platter and was encased in glass, like the rare famous rose in Beauty in the Beast, which I so admired when I was little. They were placed upon pretty antique mirrors, with little votives surrounding them. The favors – delicious yellow frosted cookies with white stitching around the heart-shaped exterior and a lovely K & J in the center. The cake was to die for – a double layer chocolate cake with toffee chunks in the bottom layer of frosting and a banana cream on the top layer, encased in white frosting with K & J red hearts and lovely yellow-green roses on top.
The fireplace was warm, and so to was the atmosphere. New acquaintances became old friends and families were unified as one loving, supportive, caring and excited ball of love. The shower couldn’t have been more perfect, and if this is a sign up what’s to come, then boy are we in for a treat.
