Wknd Recap: Tea party shower + hosting friends.

This past week some ladies and I gave a lovely bridal shower for our friend Brianna. She is marrying my husband's assistant Youth Pastor, Jorden. Jorden has been on staff at our church for 3.5 years now. Crazy. I has flown by. a lot. Brianna has been going to our church since her childhood. We wanted to have a tea party theme filled with florals/vintage linens/tea sandwiches/ cupcakes/ devonshire cream/ scones/ tea/ coffee/ Ella and Louie Armstrong playing. It was such a joy hosting this shower. I love how the beauty when women come together and spread the love. We have so many amazing people in our church. I am blessed. We had seed packets for party favors. (dreaming of spring in MN- currently raining/hailing here....yes it is April 14) Here are some pix of the shower. The linens are Kati's collection and the doilies are from my Grandma Cherie. 

We hung ribbon on fishing line for garland.

Seed packets hanging from ceiling for a whimsical feel.

I heart milk glass. We usually have a buffet line for these type of events....but we switched it up and had all the tables dressed so the ladies were served right where they were. 

I am obsessed with these dishes that our church has. I love them. So dainty. 

Used tissue paper to make poofs and cover bulletin boards.

The bride to be and I. Note my mickey sticker that I forgot to take off the whole night..... We had a mtg with our travel agent earlier in the day. 8 days in counting to Disney!!!! We have a excited 3 yo in our house.

I snapped this when people were starting to leave.

This weekend we hosted a lot. It is can make this mama tired but I am sooooo blessed with amazing friends. Seriously, so blessed. We had friends come down from Mnpls. Andres and Jesse came with their 3 month old son, Zadok. He is a model baby. Jesse used to be one of our youth leaders and she lived with us for a few months pre-kids. Her parents run the orphanage in Mexico that we have visited for missions trips in the past. Love her fam. We also had the Molins over for the fun. We ate all day----really good food. Cinnamon chip french toast with raspberry maple sauce, scrambled eggs with fresh veggies, cafe miĆ©ls, pineapple brats, cheesy potatoes etc. Oh my word. So much food.  The day was a blessing. 

Ike and Brie loving our girls as always.....

Zion, "Look, I am holding both babies."

As I am posting this.... Zion just said, "mom, I want that baby to come to my house again!" ha.

So many people in our lives that we are grateful. family. friends. church family. neighbors. blessed this Cass fam is. BLESSED.
