Shower for Julie

It's not quite spring yet, but the bridal shower yesterday was cheery and fun, despite the dreary weather outdoors.  Leah's son is getting married soon and this was our chance to meet and celebrate his fiancee', Julie.   

With the help of my amazing, graphic-designing daughter, Jana, we came up with a pretty invitation using the bride's colors--black and purple, with touches of blue.  

Purple flowers were not as abundant as I'd hoped when I shopped for flowers, but I did manage to find some beautiful hydrangeas and a few other "happy" flowers.   

Prior to the shower, we hostesses got together to plan the food and divide up the jobs and I think this was the easiest shower I have ever given!  And it was so enjoyable, too!   Our brunch menu consisted of fruit, sausage balls, cheese grits and blueberry french toast with sauce.   It was the perfect menu---looked pretty, was easy to fix and tasted REALLY yummy!!

We greeted each guest with their choice of beverage--mimosa, orange juice, water or coffee.

After visiting for a while and eating our brunch, it was time to open gifts.

Julie was a delight to meet and we were all thrilled to be a part of wishing them well as they begin their married life!
