Lindsey & Steven had a fabulous shower on Monday ~hosted by her director at DCHS.

A delightful Wedding Shower for Lindsey & Steven
on Monday, May 11. Her foreign language director at DCHS hosted this special event
with the department & a few others that Lindsey teaches with.
What fun!

Her first reception practice bouquet was assembled with all her ribbons, flowers &
package bows. Lindsey says its bad luck for the bride & groom to rehearse... I've never heard that. So this pretty bouquet will be used by her stand in.
That should be fun at her rehearsal.

The Bagel Meister stayed open late for their special shower.
I know now why its a favorite for the teachers. Yum ~!

An assortment of bagel sandwiches, muffins, pastries, a salad. We enjoyed for an
early dinner. What a treat. She certainly works with some very nice folks.
Was great to meet them and spend some sharing time.

All her presents. There were so many very nice gifts for the Lindsey & Steven.

Just a few photos to share. An iron & ironing board from Steven's Mom, Laraine.
Everyone needs one of those... although my guess would be Steven will
be the one doing the ironing.

Nannie, Julia, Laraine ~
at the end some more teacher friends from
DCHS. This was so nice of them to do for our special couple.

Ashley~ the art teacher made the happy couple a sign for their new home.
How pretty is this. They were tickled.

Many beautiful well wishes for their upcoming wedding & their future ~ Lindsey enjoyed opening all the cards & all the beautiful presents.

A bouquet in the making ~ Elizabeth (in the black top) did a great job on her debut attempt
with one of these. Ashley was impressed at all the instant creativity.

They received so many pretty & useful things.

Let's see if I can remember all of them ~ the hand painted established sign, a home depot gift card, a blender, a set of storage containers, some outdoor entertaining baskets for grilled meals with a cute ice cream tray, ketchup & mustard bottles. Her vegetable bowl ~ square white with platinum trim of her fine china selection (the first piece they have received), the salt & pepper mills from their registry, a dishtowel set with a pot holder, Pyrex dish, A beautiful book that Yvette (The Charm House) made for Lindsey to record all her gifts. That was Nannie's job to record gifts today. Gosh, there was so much ~ hope I didn't leave anything off the list. A beautiful event for our beautiful bride & her handsome groom (to be, of course... July 11). Lindsey has another shower on Sunday ~ Pampered Chef. That will be a treat as well. Another mother/daughter tea that her bridesmaid Lacy is hosting. Shew... many special events to attend. I'm thrilled to be apart of these wonderful events. After all, she is my only daughter.

As you can see the busy is beginning for this special wedding. Nannie and I were able to visit Lindsey and Steven's new home after the shower. Those pictures for tomorrows post.

Then, Thursday... some recent village photo's ~ it's been awhile since I've shared any of those, you know they will be outstanding... we have an amazing group of over the top talent at the village.

I haven't gotten to the back porch finished project yet either. Maybe just maybe~ that can be the Friday post. I will let you in on a little secret... I have a pond, complete with live plants & fish on my condo patio. How exciting is that...? I'm thrilled with it and can't wait for you to see.

So much to share... so little free time. ~one vintage hag
