sweet shower

This weekend I attended a shower for my friend Sarah who's getting married on June 19th this year.  She and her fiance Ben are having their ceremony at our church and then moving the party downtown to the Providence Piers where they'll dance the night away. 
The shower was given by her sisters, Laura and Leah, and their mother Lorraine, and it was hosted by close family friends, Rocco and Annmarie.  Everyone worked together to create a special day for the bride-to-be that she'll always remember.  
guests were greeted by this cheery wreath
a banner to welcome the guest of honor
a collection of photos of the bride and groom was displayed
festive pompoms and stars affixed to the ceiling at the entrance to Rocco & Annmarie's home
lanterns and candles made the party sparkle
a focal point of the day was a quilt that Sarah is working on for her and Ben (whose last name is Read)
guests enjoyed pink lemonade, peach iced tea, and basil water served in mason jars
Laura, Sarah's sister, is a culinary student at Johnson & Wales University and she baked chocolate lava cakes with spiced whipped cream and fresh strawberry preserves for dessert.  Yummy!
I chose a punch bowl set for Sarah and Ben - it's such a great thing to have around for entertaining!
a spring candy bar complete with paper bags for guests to fill up and enjoy
I'm looking forward to see all the details Sarah incorporates into their wedding day.  You'll hear more about that in late June!
