You are Invited!

Welcome friends, I have been talking about it for months and finally I gave the bridesmaid luncheon. I think it turned out beautifully. Before I share about the luncheon with you I have to thank some wonderful folks. One of my favorite blogs ever is Gordon Gossip.If you have an hour or two , check it out.  She has so many cool things.  She has been emailing me for weeks with ideas for the luncheon.  She has been so supportive and helpful.  Isn't it wonderful the friends we make in blogland.? 
 Miss Janice has a wonderful blog also, not only did she call me, and email me she sent me place cards and the recipe for Strawberry Riesling that everyone enjoyed! She gave me so much inspiration about many things especially the menu.  Now let me tell you about the luncheon.  We had the luncheon at my mother's house.  Are you ready for this?  My mother gave Jessie's grandmother a baby shower for her Uncle in that house, I gave her Mom a bridal shower there and I gave her bridesmaid luncheon there.  Is that cool or what?  I hand delivered every invitation with a bouquet of roses.
  I believe that made an impression don't you?I found the invitations on Etsy.  She designed them to look like the girls.  Here is a picture of them at the wedding, I think she came very close don't you?

My next post will be pictures of the luncheon (yes DeeDee I took pictures LOL).  I bought a disposable camera but I got pictures. 

What do you think?


  1. Three pretty young ladies. Sounds like the luncheon went well and what a personal touch - delivering the invitations with roses. You did good. :)
    Hope you are doing better.

  2. Sounds like you did a super job! Love the invitations, how creative and flowers, too! Wow. Lovely young women, you have every right to be proud.

  3. Jeanette,
    What a great family history of showers! It proves my point that you and your beautiful mom are so loving and generous! I just the the invitations! Wow, I'm impressed (and proud!)you took pictures! I'm looking forward to seeing them all! This note hopes to find you feeling better... Dee Dee

  4. Hi Jeanette - love the invitations and the picture. Have been trying to get in touch with you via email, phone and lastly skype.
    I'll keep trying. Hope you're well.

  5. I clicked on Gordon Gossip and got sucked in, but I'm back! ha ha!

    I've never received a hand delivered invitation- but that would definitely make a big impression with me especially if it came with roses! How thoughtful are you?

    I can't wait to see the pictures of the luncheon. I'm so happy for/proud of you!

  6. Hooray, you did it! Hand-delivered invitations with a bouquet of flowers??? You are my kind of lady and what a SUPER idea. Great job. How are you feeling? I hope things are looking on the up and up. Glad to see you posting!
