What's a BRIDAL SHOWER without sweet treats? We celebrated Abigail and Christopher's upcoming nuptials with a spring luncheon.

A dessert bar was set up in the kitchen so our guests could help themselves...

The theme for Abby's bridal shower was FEATHER HER NEST.

It continued on to the dessert bar, but because it was stationed in the kitchen it took on a more relaxed look.

A pennant banner saying "yummy" greeted each guest.  The pennant was anchored in pots of yellow pansies.

Plates and napkins were stashed in a wire basket filled with fluff and a bird's nest.

A little whitewashed pot held extra forks and spoons.

Strawberry Shortcake was served with all kinds of yummy fixins' so each quest could make it their own way.

Tiny nests held food labels.

The beverage station was set up in the foyer on the buffet I had recently painted.  The buffet top opens up to a great serving surface... perfect for serving beverages or hors d'oeuvres when entertaining.

The foyer and stair are a part of the renovation we are currently working on... but we have not even started there yet!

The old wallpaper is coming off this week to be repainted like the rest of the front of our home.

Pineapple Lemonade Punch
Water With Lemon

Nests were the decor of the day!

Some of the girls liked mixing the punch with the Prosecco ... fun!

Many people would think me a little crazy for hosting a bridal shower in the middle of a big renovation project. The living room and dining room floors were laid and everything was painted in those rooms, but I had no window treatments or much of the furniture we have ordered!!!

But I just ran with it and made the best of it!

Because most of my living room furniture is not coming in until the first week of April, it was the perfect place to set up tables for the luncheon!

I was even able to tuck one table in the foyer.

The centerpieces became each guests thank you gift!

I hope this shower was a special time for Abby. One that lets her know that she is so loved and cherished as the newest member of our family!!!
