Chris’ Bridal Shower

My mom & I hosted a bridal shower for my soon-to-be sister-in-law, Christine, yesterday.  It is always nice to have family and friends together, but it was so special for everyone to be together to celebrate Brad & Chris’ upcoming October wedding.  We finally got to meet Chris’ sister, Jen, who was the master-mind behind the great shower invitation (can’t wait to see what the wedding invites look like!).  Brad & Chris met while sailing on the Pride of Baltimore, so the wedding has an adventure/sailing theme.  We did some seashell centerpieces:



























Jen had the idea of having all of the guests make a quilt square and putting them all together for them as a keepsake.  There were so many nice squares, and it was fun to see what direction each person took the challenge.  But Chris’ mom, Ellie, took the cake. Check out her amazing all-hand-done embroidery:






























I can’t wait to see how it looks when it is all put together!

Chris was getting a little help from 9 month old Finn while she opened gifts:


















Here is my mom holding one of Brynn’s 8-week-old twins…note the onesie that says “Wonder Twin powers…ACTIVATE!”  How great is that?!  I think every twin shoud have that shirt!  (Click here to get them for twins you love…)




















Carol Raschka gave the couple a great frame with a photo of them already in it snapped one day while they were working on their house…





















This was a gift from Aunt Bobby…called ‘cooligraphy’.  It takes all the letters in their names and creates a design with them.  Daniel Nie is the artist…check out his website and read how he does it…super cool!  And a pefect wedding gift!




















Another friend, Marina (Finn’s mom), gave a beautiful bracelet and earrings…another great gift idea…something just for the bride!


















 We had such a nice time!  It makes the wedding seem so much more real now…I can’t wait to celebrate with you all again in 8 weeks!  Here is a shot of Jen, Chris, my mom & me:






















Thanks for a great party, girls!  🙂
