Friday evening, baby sister and I threw middle sister a bridal shower. The big day is still three months away, but with holidays fast approaching and the out of town bridesmaid in town, we knew we had to do it in November. Despite winds and sprinkling right as guests were arriving, by the time everyone went outside to officially start the festivities, the weather was perfect.
I wanted to do a fancy little sit down dinner and have it outside under twinkling lights. Baby sister and I wanted simple flowers, candlelight, and glittery ribbons (the holidays are coming after all) and basically something really pretty to celebrate middle sister's coming wedding. Based on the chatter, laughs, and the showering of lots of "fun" presents, we are sure middle sister loved it all so much. Best of all, was having her surrounded with all her closest friends!
