Love Is In The Air

This is my daughter Maranda & her fiance Lane at their wedding shower at our church last night.
This shower was hosted by some very close friends of ours at church. They all worked so hard to make this the perfect night and it was. Thank you, Reba, Tiffany, & LeAnda for giving Maranda & Lane an awesome shower.
This picture does not do this cake justice. I don't know if you can tell but a giant ring is sitting on the top of this cake and it has ribbon around each layer that reads "with this ring".
It was as delicious as it is beautiful.
Cheryl, another very good friend made this gorgeous cake for this shower.
Thank you Cheryl.

Those small pictures laying around the cake are actually coasters that were made by Tiffany.
They were so cute we just had to lay them out.

These are the tables before the guests arrived.
Each table was decorated with something from different rooms of a house and each centerpiece was for them to take home.

They took pictures of Maranda and Lane and purchased frames and put on the center of this table. The picture on the left is so cute. Lane is remodeling his house for them and he had been sanding sheetrock and was covered in it.

This centerpiece was utensils for the kitchen.
Each center piece was wrapped with wedding ribbon.

This is an alarm clock along with another picture frame.

This centerpiece is a group of beautiful white bath towels.
I just loved this idea because they can use everything.

Paper Towel Holder complete with paper towels
for this centerpiece.

This is the gift table. They had a great turnout and received many very nice gifts.
Thank you to everyone that came.

This is their second shower. I will be posting their work shower in a few days.
The wedding is fast approaching and we have a lot of work to do.
We have lots of friends that are just jewels to us.
This upcoming wedding is an answered prayer and everyone is so happy for Lane & Maranda.
We are all so excited about this wedding!
Don't worry you will all hear about it!

The big day is really approaching quickly, Val. My goodness but where does the time go?

I love the idea of gifts for the centerpieces. I'll have to remember that one.

What a beautiful couple they are and I pray that God will continue to richly bless them. You all are certainly blessed with loving, devoted friends. Fun photos!

The shower looks like it was very nice! I love the centerpieces...very clever!

What neat ideas.

When my cousins DD married instead of having the traditional registery book they did something really neat. They made a book similiar to a scrapbook with photos of the couple all through the years. Then the guest selected a page for their signature ... quite random. It resides out in the open and is so cool. They left space at the end for their wedding and future happenings ... like the birth of their 1st child in Feb. 2010.

What a great idea for a shower. This way everything is useful.

Congrats on your daughters engagement.

Oh and the answer to your question is no of course not. I am not quitting blogging. But I am working so much that I thought I would stop the Wednesday Words while they are still fun to do.

Talk to you soon.
