It’s About TIME. . .

Last night myself and two of my sister in laws hosted a bridal shower at my home for the ‘soon to be bride’ of our nephew.

From the beginning we decided that we would go with a ‘TIME’ theme.  We laughed how sayings using the word ‘TIME’ ran rampant through our heads.   Using things that we had it really was quite easy to pull together.

Oh if we could only capture ‘TIME’ in a bottle!

Time seems to fly by quickly, but I wonder if the future bride and groom feel that 17 days away seems like forever?

Many of you may remember my ‘Spring Time’ mantel.  Well, I pretty much recreated it on the basement mantel where the party was held.

Groupings of clocks. . .some old. . .some new.

My sil, Alayna made a cute little flip chart that we used.  It brought in a bit of humor.  We started with introduction time, then followed with story time.  Where the bride to be told the story of how they met and all about the proposal.

She also made a darling photo board of the bride and groom.  Seems that  in no TIME those babies we have are grown and exchanging vows.

Look at the darling embellishment she added to the corner of the photo board.

We all know that we grow wiser with age.  We asked everyone to share some ‘pearls of wisdom’ for the new bride in our “TIME for advice” segment.

I had fun creating these little ‘pearls of wisdom’ bottles.  I picked up the bottles for $1 each at a local antique mall.

Each guest took one home as a thank you for coming gift.

I like the theme and everything seems so nice.
I've been to some showers but I'm not used to it. We don't do it here....
I'd like also to wish you and your family a wonderful Easter (we're celebrating Passover now)
