Twice Showered




This weekend was shower #2 for me. My cousin, Kristen, is getting married the weekend before me and together we have a pretty large family that usually gets together the day after Christmas. However, we got to see a lot of family for our joint party much earlier than Christmas! We had a recipe/stock the pantry party where we got a ton of great recipes and a lot of ingredients to go along with it. Our fianc├ęs got to jump right in and have fun for this shower too. 
My mom and grandmother transformed my parents' backyard into a fall wonderland with the prettiest roses and sunflowers, peppers, cabbage, and of course pumpkins. The above photo was in the middle of the food table, flanked by tons of barbecue, salads, rolls, fried pies...ok a lot of food. Good food...not-on-my-wedding-diet-food!


Sunny fall weather with pretty orange. 




My mom's bottle tree looked beautiful with bright mums and pumpkins.

We made a s'mores "bar" with a pot, rocks and little burners. 
S'more's tip: Use Reese's instead of Hershey's
