Rhode Island Shower - Hosted by Dave's Mother & Sisters

September Luncheon at Waterman Grill in Providence

It was a beautiful day in Providence for my first wedding shower hosted by Dave's mother, sister and sister-in-law.  The weather was sunny and perfect. The menu included french toast, eggs, bacon, and sausage, and fruit.  There was a spread of fruit, muffins and bagels.  Mimosas and Bloody mary's were served.  Dessert was strawberry mousse.  I had a salad with portabella mushrooms and fresh strawberries for dessert. 33 people attended.

New Jersey Shower - Hosted by Maid of Honor

October Luncheon at Braddock's Tavern in Medford
It was a rainy afternoon in Jersey where family members came to celebrate the big day!  It was wonderful to see first cousins, second cousins, great aunts and even some of the men make cameos.  The restaurant was wonderful and the guests had a choice of seafood pastry or chicken.  Beer and wine kept everyone smiling!  It was a lovely day for sure!  Thanks to my sister, my Maid of Honor and my mother, the unoffical hostess for giving me such a wonderful shower!
