I went to a bridal shower this morning.
Saturday, April 22, 2017
A house was rented for a bridal shower for my son's fiancee. The owner of the house took a log cabin apart and had the logs cleaned and treated for insects, then put them into this house. It was beautiful with many antiques and grandfather clocks. He generally rents it by the week, but it was rented for two days so our son's fiancee could spend time with old classmates and they wouldn't have to leave the house to get ready for the shower and bachelorette party tonight.
I don't know how many were there. When I got there, most of the women were dressed for a night on the town. They were also going to a bachelorette party this evening. They had breakfast prepared of mini muffins, fruit in small cups-strawberries and blueberries, granola, yogurt, waffles and oatmeal.
Most of the women opted for mixed drinks. The first game was to try to get peach rings (candy) onto a skewer while holding it in your mouth and you couldn't use your hands to hold the bowls they were in. Each bowl had the same number of peach rings and the winner had to get six on their skewer.
Then there was a game of how well do you know the bride and groom and questions were listed on sheet of paper and you had to answer bride, groom or both. I got 5 right out 15 questions. Then there was a game matching the Disney Love Song to the movie. I got one right out of 15.
There was a jar of Hershey kisses to guess the number of kisses in the jar and I guessed 32. There was Easter grass for Easter baskets in the jar and there were over 200 kisses in the jar. The winner got the jar and the kisses.
My son's fiancee was given many nice gifts that are useful. We sat in a separate room while the bride elect opened the gifts, then went into a different room where pictures were taken.
We went to our son's tonight for hamburgers and mac and cheese and then watched The Slenderman about two girls that tried to kill one of their friends because Slenderman told them to; it was a documentary.
We came home and I am baking a meatloaf for the church get-together tomorrow. We put it off a week since my friend was in the hospital. I don't know if they will be at church tomorrow.
It was a full day, a fun day and a busy day. My husband and I took a nap after the bridal shower and our son went to his house and took one too.
