This past Friday, we were privileged to host the bridal shower for my future sister-in-law, Laura. When I say host, I mean that we opened our home to several incredibly talented young ladies, and they turned the place into a scene from a fairy tale. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Dessert table complete with Italian cream cake, homemade lime punch and cucumber basil water.
Susanna, sister of bride-to-be
Maureen, sister of the bride-to-be and maid of honor, and Abby, friend of bride-to-be
Laura, bride-to-be and Maureen, maid of honor

Kristen, sister of bride-to-be
Niece of bride-to-be
Shalom, youngest sister of the bride-to-be, filling out her answers to the “who knows Paul and Laura best” activity.
Rose, nonna (grandma) of groom-to-be, also filling out her activity sheet.
And of course, spike ball…
Laura opening Nonna’s gift: a set of cookware. We thought it was so cool that Nonna helped furnish the kitchen, because she has passed on her love and talent for Italian cooking to Paul, and now Laura.
I would say a bunch of sweet and sappy things to end this post, but I’m going to save them for my bridesmaid’s speech at the wedding. Love you guys!
