Showered with Love

A couple of weeks ago, my sister-in-law and her girls threw a wedding shower for my soon-to-be new daughter-in-law, who will be marrying son #3 in December.  It was a Pearl family affair, all blue and silver and lovely (and I blogged about it here, in case you didn't see that post yet).
Even the punch was blue (a delectable mixture of champagne, blueberry Italian ice, and blueberries).
And my contribution to the festivities was this cake, which I baked a couple of days ahead of time in the future husband's bachelor pad kitchen.
This past weekend, there was a second shower for my boy's girl, this time thrown by her darling young single friends who live on the outskirts of D.C.  When it rains, it pours--and love has just been pouring down on the head of this well-loved bride-to-be!  Her mother and future mother-in-law were both able to attend, which was a special treat for us moms, and the party was held in the home of one of her friends--the sweetest, most adorable cottage-type abode at the end of a cul-de-sac on a quiet, tree-lined street.  It's a cozy haven with a Pottery Barny (is that a word?) feel to it, filled with all kinds of Pinterest-worthy little touches.

The set-up was delightful.

The activities were creative.
And the food was delish.
The future bride approved of the menu.
Oh, and there were gifts, too!
All in all, the affair was not too shabby.  (Actually, I would call it the epitome of shabby chic!)


  1. My goodness, what a pretty cake! And it looks like such a wonderful, fun time! You must have been very close to where I live.

    God bless!

    1. That cake tasted even better than it looked. It was white chocolate with cream cheese frosting. :)

  2. I wish I could have been there! Did my present(s) make it?? Love you!

    1. Yes! And they were a hit! (I meant to call you.)

      You're the best! :)

    2. Oh, good.... I wish I could have been there! I thought of all of you though!
