Another Wedding Shower

Sunday we hosted another wedding shower--this time for the brother of the bride we showered in January. Such a dear family!

I kept the food and decor on the manly side, since both men and women were invited. So a tailored cake made by my talented friend Carol (I provided the sliced pear garnish, although it was an apple spice cake--I just couldn't resist the brown and cream colors).

Instead of flowers, a giant vase of oak leaf hydrangea branches and a fishbowl (that's Bella's fish Chester showing off in there) decorated the table, along with a few river rocks.

Lots of lemonade:

And a very nice time.

How simple and elegant. Your pictures are so lovely.

very simple, yet elegant as always. It did have a more masculine hint to it, and yet it was very nice.
Great job!

That lemonade looks so yummy! Do you have a favorite recipe for it you could share?

Good idea to use the leaves as a centerpiece. And the fish & rocks add interest. Decorating for a gentleman's party, elegantly, is difficult. Thanks for sharing!

I almost always make my lemonade out of frozen concentrate--I think it's delicious! It's so easy, and its easily dressed up with ciitrus slices and fresh mint.
