It was really a surprise!

Daughter ended up being very surprised for her Surprise Bridal Shower (thank goodness! we pulled it off!!) All of the stories, lies and stress paid off....

My friend made this beautiful cake. The heart and butterfly are cookies. Youngest daughter and I made additional desserts- petit fours, brownie bites, and miniature cherry cheese cakes.

Also on the menu: Chicken Marsala, Eggplant Parmigiana, Penne alla Vodka, Green Beans Almondine, and salad. (We ate it but didn't photograph it- typical.)

For a Wishing Well, we used a laundry basket- guests could bring small household items and useful "odds-and-ends" to fill the basket. Later, it will be handy for actually doing laundry....

Here is daughter with her bridesmaids:

And here is the happy couple:

And June will be here before we know it.


  1. What a great surprise. I'm glad you pulled it off.

  2. Looks like a great time! I'm planning a baby shower for my daughter-in-law in the coming months, maybe I will be able to use some of these ideas!

  3. They look so very happy and oh my gosh, so very very young!! Could be me though, everyone is looking young these days LOL

  4. Love love love all of your little touches. Glad you could surprise her!
