This sunny Saturday in the mountainous 303 kicked off with a delightful bridal shower for Miss Elisabeth Akers in Fort Collins, Colorado. The decorations were sublime, the food delicious, gifts abundant and the advice imparted, invaluable. The morning started with a prayer of blessing for the bride to be and then ensued with a buffet style brunch complete with punch, fruit, potato casseroles and of course cupcakes! Pale pink and green graced the tables, plates, and napkins, all the way down to the creatively tied cutlery sets. No doubt, the highlight of the morning was hearing the testimony and advice of long time friend and mentor to the bride, Mrs. Corwine. She shared her own marriage stories and lessons learned to Liz as she presented her with a symbolic sewing basket. Each item, scissors, thread, pins and patches, had a symbolic meaning for a good marriage. Hearing about her experiences of trial, success, frustration and love were enough to bring a tear to the eye of more than one lady in the room. INSTAGRAM-ED IT!
What better occasion to blow up your Instagram feed than with these special times with friends and family?
Having home made baked goodies at your shower takes the event from simply fabulous, to “Martha Stuart extraordinaire”.
This lovely golden birdcage added a colorful, fairy tale like element to the mouth-watering spread at the buffet table.
Here’s to Liz and Aaron as they anxiously count down to the day they commit to have and to hold each other for the rest of their lives.
