This is my sister's lovely home.

My niece, the bride, my sister and my other niece the bride's sister.

Gifts from the bride for her bridesmaids were aprons chosen for the girls personality.

You can tell they really liked them. They were all smiles.

Linking to Tablescape Thursday, Foodie Friday and Seasonal Sundays.


  1. Is there anything more fun than a bridal luncheon. This looks beautiful. How sweet those aprons are.

  2. My goodness...your table is gorgeous! Everything, right down to the serving pieces, is beautiful. Looks like everyone was having a wonderful time. The good looks yummy and your house is beautiful. The bride-to-be is lovely and will be a gorgeous bride. Very elegant shower!!!

  8. What an incredibly beautiful bride, family, home and celebration!!! This is such an exciting time in your family's history, and I hope you guys get the chance to savor every moment. It is quite apparent you did at this bridesmaids' luncheon! :-) Your sister's home is beautiful!!! The floral at the front door was the perfect greeting to guests with hydrangeas that tie in to the dining table. Best wishes to your niece for a long and fulfilled marriage, and congratulations to your family!

  9. Wow, those photographs are amazing and the bridal lunch looked really nice. Everything looked like it took time to prepare, and will be a great memory to look back on.

  10. Bonnie, I cannot imagine a more beautiful bridesmaids' luncheon. Every detail was just so wonderful. I know it was a delight to attend. Great photos!! blessings ~ tanna

  11. Oh my, such a lovely tablescape. Every detail is just perfect. Your family is lovely and the bride looked so radiant. Your Sister's home is stunning. Sounds like the perfect lunch. Hugs, Marty

  12. A beautiful, quietly elegant bridesmaid's luncheon. Those girls will wear those aprons for the rest of their lives, and they'll remember this occasion each time that they wear their aprons...such a wonderful, thoughtful gift. The flowers under the cloches is a neat idea. Thank you for sharing this wonderful day with us. Cherry Kay

  13. Beautiful! I am way into wedding planning currently, as my daughter is getting married in the Spring. I'm very excited and nervous all at once. I enjoyed visiting your blog and seeing your family so happy. With all the crazy stuff in our daily life, it's nice to see the happiness of wedding bliss.

  14. Oh Bonnie, Everything is totally STUNNING!!! What a wonderful event that you planned and it looks like it was completely stellar and you are "the hostess with the mostest!"

    Thank you so much for attending my seminar. Usually I have pretty art on my blog, so it feels bare during the classes! lol I wanted to tell you what the Plus One button does...It is like an applause for our friends or a "thank you for this post!" Easy and it helps get their blog out there for other people to see who might also need the info that they posted.

    Such a beautiful event you planned and it is so wonderful meeting you. Guess what? I am in New Orleans and the colors in my house are the same as yours...We Southern Girls love charm in our surroundings, don't we?


  15. What a gorgeous and elegant table setting! I am sure your niece was pleased at the wonderful luncheon you hosted in her honor! The china, flatware and cloche covered flowers are beautiful together. I especially love the little salt cellars with their little silver spoons. I have a few I love to use for special occasions. The menu and food looks delicious and I am sure your guests enjoyed everything! Thanks for sharing your special event!

    Thank you so much for your super sweet comment--yes, Tom is about to leave. This is his last weekend. He's flying out Tuesday morning for his year long Afghanistan deployment.
