My oldest son is engaged to a lovely woman named Esther. Yes, Esther. How cool a name is that?
So my daughters and I put on a shower for Esther.
|Anne and Esther with the food all ready to be eaten. The flourless chocolate cake in front of them is Esther's favorite and Anne's work of art.|
|The buffet table. I know my mother was surely pleased that we were using her punch bowl! (OK, I know, I'm hopelessly sentimental.|
|Esther's mom, Esther, and me.|
|Daughter Mary, Esther, and daughters Anne and Liz|
|So pleased to have my favorite niece Monique and Jim's girlfriend Elle also join us. They were also an enormous help.|
|The mothers with the daughters!!|
It was a lovely day. Here are my two dear friends Ann and Sally together with Elle and Monique.
I loved that there were four of my friends attending, together with their daughter-in-laws!
|Esther with her mom (and empty boxes from the already opened gifts. :-)|
Mary gathered all the bows together to serve as the bouquet at the rehearsal.
Esther and Patti share a light hearted moment.
Here are Esther and Mary with the bow bouquet.
My daughters worked so hard on this shower. May I brag about them? They were amazing. They were leading. I was doing what they were telling me. It was so delightful to see them in charge of a lovely event. (And I kind of liked not being the one in charge. I really did.)
