sweet southern shower

i’ll never forget the shower my mother’s friends threw me!  I was spoiled rotten.  These women know how to throw a party!  They are all so sweet, southern, and they know how to make me laugh.  
I always walk away smiling from something they said.  Like this one – 
“you don’t want cookies to take home with you?”
A: “no.  I’ll just eat it”
B: “but what about for hard times
A: “hard times?”
B: “like just put it in your freezer for the hard times when you need something sweet”
so now I’m obsessed with this hard times bit.   maybe it has to do with the southern drawl that goes along.
Anyway, this weekend they threw a shower and it was beautiful!  I snapped a few pictures..
Happy Monday, Friends!

    Such a pretty shower–this is why showers should become popular over here so we can have cookies for the hard times too.

    I am a detail lover. I love all the sweet touches here and there. And I never thought to dress up a hanging light with greenery aside from Christmas – great idea!
