Rachel's Bridal Shower

My dear friend Rachel Ferkovich is getting married in just about 3 weeks! So, along with the help of some CSUN gals, I threw her a bridal shower. Rach loves all things vintage and her bridesmaids dresses are yellow, so I tried my darnedest to give the party that theme (you'll see lots of lemons). Here it is...
I just loved how the mason jars turned out! Brianne, Brooke, and I hot glued twine, a small piece of scrapbook paper, and than a button to the jar. Then we stuck a yellow straw in it for drinking. Each girl wrote their name on the little paper tag.
Each drink container had a chalkboard label (from PB Kids).
Lemonade, Water, Iced Tea...
This table was where the guests addressed their thank you card envelope (to make things easy for Rach later) and did the game.
Here's the favors...a lemon wrapped in a cloth napkin with "Love never fails" sewn on the top and tied with twine. Thanks to Jenny and Mrs. Danderand for their sewing skills!
Mike and Rachel have their own special napkins with their initials in grey on it. I also made this wood plaque for their house. It has the date of their wedding and initials on it.
Hannah and Brooke enjoying some lemonade.
Our breakfast! Sausage egg casserole, yogurt parfaits, lemon tea cakes, and chocolate cake...yum.

Lil Maddie loved being one of the "big girls".
We had breakfast picnic style.
Here's Rachel giving the answers to the game. You had 9 photos of Mike and Rach to put in chronological order from their relationship over the past 2 years.
After the game, we had a sweet time of prayer for the cute couple.
Then she opened all these wonderful gifts!

Rach and friends. I love the yellow paper balls Karina that made! We hung them from the lattice.

Vivian is in Rach's small group.
Everybody loves Mrs. Zimmer!
Karina, Taylor, and Sarah.
Sarah and Jessica!

We had a fun morning together celebrating what God is doing in Rachel's life. We all look forward to seeing how He will use them for His glory in the future.
