Here are some of the gifts I opened. So many lovely things. I especially liked the beautiful floral packaging from my Aunt Lois and the nautical wrapping with personalized name tags that my mother made. Of course, I will put the Lilly Pulitzer gift bags to good use!
Fresh flowers in a vintage vase complement the old fashioned nautical lace doilies on each table. At the end of the luncheon, guests were invited to take a shell from the table to place in a Pottery Barn container filled half way with sand and a candle. My shower guests helped to make a centerpiece that now decorates a table in the formal living room! Such a clever idea.
My sister came from North Carolina to host the shower! So sweet of her. She thought of every detail and made the day special. Doesn't she look a lot like Alexia?
Place cards at each table helped guests find their table. Color coded place cards helped the waitstaff know who got which entree. I love the shell place card holders.
One of the shower games was so clever and unique. Guests scratched off a card found at their place setting to see if they had won a prize!
My soon to be sister in law brought a beautiful anchor cake! It was so delicious and was worth every calorie.
Thank you to everyone who was a part of this incredibly special day!
