Whew, I am so tired, but it is a good tired! I've been pretty quiet on here because I was throwing a shower for my friend Kristi. I also made the cake. The theme was cookies and milk. I saw a first birthday milk and cookies theme here: http://apartystyle.blogspot.com/2010/02/milk-and-cookies-party_10.html , and I fell in love with it. I was going to do a brown and white theme like in the pictures, but then I found these plates:
I also found matching scrapbook paper which I used through out the shower, even underneath my cake!
Proverbs 23:25 says: "Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice". Kristi and James were married last year. Kristi lost her first husband years ago before I knew her and has a ten year old daughter, Kayla.
I chose the verse: "O taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the man that trusteth in Him" Psalm 34:8 because Kristi trusted in the Lord to take care of her and her daughter all these years and he has truly blessed them!
I made this banner on my computer and hung it on the fireplace by the tables. I had also put this verse on the invitations.
We all took this time to rejoice with Kristi in this most happy time of her life!
That's ok, the skirt was too long and I was going to shorten it from the top anyways!
