Wedding Shower No. 1: Laurie and Kelly

As you saw from my post on hostess shower gifts, we had our first wedding shower this past weekend in Plymouth. Held by my friends, and former bosses, Laurie and Kelly totally outdid themselves with this kitchen-themed lunch. Mac-and-cheese made a surprise appearance from The Union in Clarkston, too! Here’s a look at this wonderful afternoon.

Each table was adorned with a red-and-white table cloth, a gift of Slow Jams to take home, fresh flowers in antique Mason jars, and kitschy bead-and-pin baskets packed with Sanders chocolates. A crossword puzzle was our activity after lunch.

Mac-and-cheese, salads, spicy green beans, and Laurie's famous deviled eggs.

Wonderful centerpieces.

Guests arrive and grab some drinks and food on the deck.

Cupcakes from Just Baked – sooo delicious.

The Martha Stewart cut-out was a HUGE hit at the shower.


I love this cut-out so much.

I gave guests a Wienermobile whistle in a glassine envelope with a “see you soon!” tag on top.
