Janell's Bridal Shower

Janell's bridal shower was a tea party. There were 11 of us altogether. I was the planner and visionary and my sisters and sister-in-law made it happen. Everyone played a special role and it wouldn't have been a success without their help.

The table. The favors were tealights and teabags.

This is a sampling of the food we had. The menu is too long to write. We counted 13 different foods that we prepared that morning. Highlights included orange chocolate chip scones with clotted cream, white chocolate mousse, and cucumber sandwiches.


PRESENTS!

The sisters and sister-in-law. Yay for Meghan! Meghan is such a good sport even though she detests living on the Eastern Shore. I only have one brother so she will be my only sister-in-law. How would you like to marry into a family of 4 sisters!??


Too bad my eyes are closed. Mom and her girls.

I love those pictures!! The one of you & the girls is so great of everyone!! ...and look at how cute you & your mom look --with no gap!

...and I don't detest, per se. I'm learning to love the chicken smells and Walmarts. My new family makes for a wonderful support system :-)
