Bridal Talk Tuesday - Friends and Family Shower

Life with Elizabeth
Happy Bridal Talk Tuesday girls!!!  32 days to go!

Today, we're going to chat about my third bridal shower. This was my Friends and Family shower, which was hosted by my aunt and cousin in my hometown in South Carolina. First, I just want to say how fortunate I am for the network of friends and family members who have thrown these showers for Corey and I. I am so grateful that we were able to have three showers in three different locations so that I could celebrate with all of the people closest to me.
My cousin, Macie, me, and Anna, one of the hostesses

The adorable shower invite. 

I wore Lilly again. This time the Adeline dress from this spring. 

Gorgeous centerpiece on the table. 

The spread of snacks that my aunt and cousin made. 

These are cracker spoons with pimento cheese and a pineapple spread. My cousin made the cracker dough and cut and baked every single spoon. 

Pretty strawberry cake. 

Opening gifts. Along with their gift, each guest enclosed a recipe. I'm so excited to try them all. 

The cutest apron I've ever seen. 

 The favors were teacups with candles in them and they were precious. 

This picture is so special to me. It is my aunt Pat, Grandmother, mom, and Aunt Emily. My mom's sisters are spread out in South Carolina, Florida, and Louisiana but they always try to get together for family weddings and gatherings. They always take a picture of "Momma" (my grandmother) and the girls. We have a picture of my grandmother and her five daughters at my cousin, Sarah's, wedding and again at my grandmother's 90th birthday party. My mom's youngest sister passed away of cancer this year so it makes me especially grateful for my mom's two sisters who were able to celebrate with me and for my grandmother. 

Thank you so much Anna and Aunt Linda (who somehow avoided being in any pictures!) for such a special day!!
