Pictures of the Shower (plus tease for 100th post)

Welcome friends, !!I finally gathered some pictures from the luncheon.This is the 'party' room my parents built 35 years ago, it will hold a lot of people.  If those walls could talk!  This is how it looked when you entered to the Bridesmaid Luncheon.  
One of the things I was most proud of was the chicken salad filled bread cones.  They turned out so pretty and tasty.  Using Miss Janice's recommendation  I also made cheese straws, pimento cheese  sandwiches. 

Just another look at the buffet.

Fruit Salad, cucumber sandwiches garnished with home grown dill. Ham roll ups rounded out the menu.
This is my greatest achievement.  It is a charm cake using a recipe from Lick the Bowl Good.
There are hydrangeas on the top with avocado colored ribbon tied to each charm.  We rigged it so the bride
would pull the baby carriage charm!  LOL

Everyone having a grand time.

The beautiful bride, her momma and me!
I could never have done it without the help and encouragement of so many.  It is
a memory that I will treasure always for a beautiful young woman whom I adore.

Friends,  can you believe this is my 100th post?   My husband's darling daughter is making 3 incredible
bejeweled mirrors to give three readers.  Details to follow.  Thank you so much for reading and leaving any comments!  Now to plan a baby shower for my other sweetie on August 1st!
