Bridal Shower was a Success!

---Me and my bridesmaids and matron of honor
---Centerpices on tables

----Burndt Almond Torte Cake from Prantl's bakery in Pittsburgh (This cake is to die for!!)

---Favors (hand sanitizer and chocolate chip cookie with tea attached in a handstamped muslin bag)

---Food (grilled turkey sandwich with coleslaw,chips, and soup.) I make the picks for the sandwiches they say Eat Me.

---Me and my future husband!

---Table Setting

I had my bridal shower on July 17 at Miss Martha's Tea Room located in Scottdale,PA it was a vintage Alice in Wonderland theme based on the characters from John Tenniel's illustrations and the bookand just wanted to share a few pictures. I was very fortunate that I got some gifts from my registry and a few suprise gifts (we have our own home and didn't want much) and we got gift cards and a lot of money :) Everyone was so generous at the shower!!! Wilbur and I put the money from the shower towards new hardwood flooring, laminate flooring, and ceramic tile in our home! The next step is to take off the wallpaper and paint!! We have been in our home for almost 2 years now and have done a lot of things!
