My nice niece Rita and her family
live less than 10 minutes away.
I stopped by as she was preparing a bridal shower
for a coworker and snapped a few photos.
A wire heart holds photos of the engaged couple.
She printed signs using various fonts and
put them into pretty white frames.
She hung them with tulle from the chandelier.
Something Old, Something New,
Something Borrowed and Something Blue.
A big beautiful bouquet of white flowers.
A sweets table for a sweet life.
Guest scooped candy into cellophane bags.
Large apothecary jars filled with candy.
A lollipop tree.
Pitchers were labeled for the sangria.
Tea sandwiches were labeled
Chicken salad and English cucumber.
Cut into perfect hearts.
They taste so much better that way.
There was a table for presents.
And of course there was a fabulous cake.
All under her very fabulous shabby chic chandelier.
