A Delightful Shower

High tea
Quiet Shower games
Time to meet new friends

Left my camera in the car. Borrowed my dear friend D's (the bride) iphone and took pictures for her.

Vintage themed decorations based on British Royal Weddings and memorabilia, from D's collection. From vintage collectors the bride received a divided red casserole with original lid, a mint in box clear glass coffee carafe with stand, a vintage apron, a Fire King mug, vintage books on fly fishing and paperweights along with bee hive ceramics and an aluminum fish themed tray plus a great bird house with authentic worn paint finish.

D also received a treasure trove of towels and linen and kitchen themed gifts, fridge storage containers, and a complete set of repro vintage canisters. When I see the photos from the shower I know I will 'remember' what I have forgotten to add here.

Teapots. Tiered cake stands. Delicious sandwiches without crusts. Tasty sweets. Tea in vintage bone china.

Added a collage of teapots collected in August and early September.

High tea served on Royal Albert china. White linen and fresh flowers, lovely. Met D's Aunties and Mom, cousins and nieces, putting faces to her family stories.
