Sweetness into Saturday

The evening sparkled with twinkle lights
and smiles,
pretty bows and flowers,
and mountains of frosted cupcakes
in vintage centerpieces....
Friends and family visited
in love and laughter,
and this mom-of-the-bride
is still glowing with sentimentality!

 Here are the homemade centerpieces....
fabric, lace doilies, sweets,
flowers, and Michelle's own
table signs/cupcake keys!

 Everyone took home a berry basket (left)
with handstamped linen bags of lavender,
a jar candle with a handmade
Thank You sticker,
and tied with twine,
and a package of cupcake wraps
...and hopefully a prize or two!

 By the time I decorated cupcake 100,
I hope I could squeeze out prettiness...♥ !
The whimsical sugar butterflies, (etsy)
were such a lovely touch!

Maid-of-Honor (Sarah),
Junior bridesmaid (Chelsea),
and Michelle (Bride-to-Be!):

~All four bridesmaids~

And Groom, Kevin,
came near the end
to bring his Mom, me, and Michelle flowers,
share smiles,
and to take the beautiful gifts home!

PS. We really did eat more than cupcakes!
We had appetizers and
stations with carved beef and turkey for sandwiches,
fresh tomato & basil pizzas,
and a make-your-own sundae bar!

Thank you so much for sharing our evening and looking at photos!
I love when you visit.

You have a beautiful daughter.
