tea party

Day In.

Party # 2.

On Sunday of the same weekend, I threw a wedding shower for my twin sister, Rebecca. I love doing girly things so we had afternoon tea! A McKaskle tradition.

A fellow bridesmaid, Lauren, as well as my mom helped get everything ready.

Here's what was on the menu:
-Cream cheese & cucumber sandwiches
-Chicken Salad sandwiches
-Chocolate chip scones with homemade jam and clotted cream
-Strawberry shortcake cupcakes
-Cheese straws
-Tea cakes
-Lemon straws
-Hot tea

I'm not a huge fan of cheesy shower games but sometimes, it is nice to have something to do with everyone. I found this cute idea to do a MabLib version of wedding vows. They turned out hilarious! Rebecca read some out was a hit.

You can find them here.

With the bride!

Rebecca with her future mother and sister-in-law.

I gave her a print of the state of Georgia....where they met and their first home!

Sweet Megan from Auburn. She MADE Rebecca pottery! Impressive.

It was a lot of fun...and a very lovely time. But I have to say, I was quite exhausted that night and pretty much the next couple of days!

Oh happy day!

Day Out.
