Yesterday was Mary's first bridal shower, hosted by Missy Oliphant. Many years ago, "Mrs. O" was Mary's English teacher at Smith Prep, a classical home school program that Mary attended in her early high school years. Later, Mary worked under Missy as an administrator and grader for Smith Prep. Missy and Mary became very dear to each other! Anyway, she and her daughter Mei were really kind to throw this lovely tea for Mary, with almost 20 ladies attending. Here are a few pics!
My main bridal shower present for Mary was a poem called "Seven Blessings for One Marriage" that I wrote. Joanna embellished it with scrapbooking papers along the edge before I framed it. I scanned the finished product, and I'll put it in a separate post.
