Shower time

This past week, my 2 sister-in-laws and I had a bridal shower for Bobs nephew Christopher's, girlfriend. Chris and Trisha are getting married in the beginning of August, so we thought we'd have the shower before she was too busy.
 Bob's mom arranged for us to use a room at the independent living facility she lives at.  The room was really nice and no one had to worry about getting their house ready.  :)

(my girls)
We started  the evening with a little laugh, when Laura and Heather both arrived wearing khaki capri's and a navy top.  My sisters and I have been teased for doing the same thing, so we told Laura and Heather they were taking after me.


We started with supper; chicken salad croissants, fruit salad, veggies and dip and this yummy cake.
 

Here's a few guests from left to right:
Laura, niece Alicia, Bob's sister Karla, Mom and his sister Diane


Of course there were gifts to open!


And games to play...

You can see that there were a few people that got a lot of candy.  That was from this game:


This was a memory game. These squares were covered by numbered post-it notes.  People had to choose 2 squares, trying to match a phrase with a candy.  If they got it right they got the candy.  Some examples of match ups:  Airheads - bridesmaids, Lifesavers - parents, Nerds - in-laws, Sweet Tarts - bride and groom, Baby Ruth - something we'll all be waiting for...   It was a fun game.



Here's Tricia with a picture of Chris - she was trying to make a face to match his.  :)
This was another game.  Each person was given a sealed envelope when they arrived.  They all opened them together.  Each one had a picture of some famous man, but one had this picture of the groom.  The envelope with the groom was the winner. 
It was a fun night and we're all looking forward to the wedding in August.

Showers can be so much fun and yours looked as if it was. The food sounds good, the cake was perfect, and the games fun. Your daughters are so pretty (like their mother) and the idea of having the shower some place other than home is an excellent idea!

First let me say, your girls have such beautiful smiles. They radiate the love of the Lord and of family. Laura looks fantastic. Second, I thank God for what appears to have been a clean and wholesome bridal shower! Furthermore I wish Tricia and Chris a blissful marriage replete with passion, prosperity, and pretty babies. xoxo

What a lovely shower you gave her. She will always remember her special day. I don't think I've ever seen both of your girls together before. They are both very pretty and they both look a lot like their mom!

I like the idea of using the room that was available so no one had to prepare their home. How fun to have the shower, and a wedding soon.

It sounds like it was a great success. That candy game would be fun. I really hate some of the games at showers, but that one would be fun. Great idea to have it in a party room, rather than someone's house, for the very reason you mentioned. Thanks for sharing the fun!

The games DO sound like great fun! (I'm always on the look-out for good ones...)
