Tropical Flower Crowns... Bridal Shower
The Bridal Showerfor my girl was a complete success this weekend!
The setting and prep was done to a tee!But for me it was the interaction and joy withFlower Crowns that made it such a memorable event!
Everyone had trying on crownsfor tha photo boothfrom women in their early 20's to 70'sand everyone in between!
There was wonderful joy in Crowning Ourselves for the afternoon!

With actual rain in the forecastwe rented a tentwith a tropical background for a perfect photo backdrop.

My friendship with Dorieis a blogging connection with a twist!
When I went to the Bloggers in Napa Event that Adrienne of

arrangedI met
Heather
 of the blogStyle Mind Chic.
When Heather came down to visit Southern CaliforniaI knew I had to invite her to dinner.She thought I would hit it off with her sisterwho had been a designer for Saint John's Knits for over 20 yearsand
 asked if she could bring Dorie.I said of course!And have been grateful every since!

It was a most remarkable and memorable shower for this Momma.
Not only are Bridal Showers for the Bride to bebut they are eventsthat we can all use as touchstones to  our own life moments …
Pretty much like weddings.
Where we can come together to celebrate and support.Bask in the hopeful optimism of  those embarking on new lives.
They are events where  we can look back to our moments in timewhen we too set off on out life journeysand remember who was there to celebrate with us.
We can look forward to the unfolding of all our new chapters.
But most importantlywe can take a momentand push all that is beautiful and loving about the daydeep into our heart.To become acherished memory of a present day.
