A Festive Occasion

Hello Friends, and thank you for stopping by!  Hope you all had a nice weekend!  Mine was very wet (unlike a lot of years, we have gotten a lot of rain this June), but nice as well.  On Sunday we had the bridal shower for my son's fiancee.  There were many in attendance, and it was a beautiful shower.  The first pic shows how the mantel was decorated.  We had it at a county park lodge building. My daughter made all the decorations for on the mantel. :)  I ordered the 16x20 print of the couple back in October.  Got a great deal on it at Shutterfly. At the time I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, and it turns out it was perfect for this occasion!

I'm mainly sharing this next pic so you can see the pretty decorations we made.  My daughter made the paper rosettes, and I made the tissue paper pom-poms.  This picture was taken when Brandon had to answer questions for a game.  I just noticed the baby doll in the pic.  That had nothing to do with the belonged to one of the little girls.  lol  ;)

And here's the happy couple.  :)  They'll be getting married in August.

And now for some crochet. :)  The first two pics are of the towels I made for Carrie for part of her shower present.  No pattern...just did my own thing.

And I think I forgot to share this pic the last time I blogged.  I haven't been getting much thread crochet done because I'm working on birthday presents for the grandkids.  But I managed to squeeze in some thread flowers before I went to Laura's place to dog-sit recently.  Pattern info is directly on the pic.
