April Showers...Bring June Weddings!

This past weekend I had the honor of co-hosting a Bridal Shower for Kim in Atlanta.  (You may remember my weekend trip to Florida for her previous shower.)  Friday afternoon I packed up my car and went scootin' down Interstate 75 to join Dana and Anne, to prepare for the shower we were hosting Saturday morning.  We had been emailing and discussing the logistics of our southern themed kitchen and recipe shower for months, so it was nice to see it all finally come together. 

The invitations.

The spread...

Southern favorites.  Pimiento Cheese & Cucumber Dill.

Green Bean Salad.

Granny Smith & Feta Salad.

Can we get any more southern than fried chicken?

The adorable cupcakes.

Nothing more classic than Coke in a glass bottle.

Nothing more tasty than champagne punch or sweet tea!

The favors were Bacon Caramel Popcorn. Recipe Included.
(This was a recipe shower.)

We had Kim's Formal China on display for the guests.
(along with photos of the happy couple scattered throughout the rooms)

The Beautiful Bride.

The Bride with her Grammy, Aunt & Mom.
I loooove her family!

The food turned out better than the three of us could have hoped, everyone seemed to have a great time at our shower and our Bride received some wonderful gifts.  Overall, I would say it was a success.  :)  

(Btw, I've recently discovered I love to take photos of food.  Guess I should have been a food photographer? Ha. I probably shouldn't quit my day job.)
