Once Upon a Time...a wedding shower

Once upon a time...

just up the road...
Two of my dear friends hosted a shower for my daughter, The Princess.

It was attended by dear ones from near and far and since you are dear to me as well,
I thought I would share this amazing day with you too!

There were white pumpkins, fall leaves and lots of rhinestones...

Even a Royal Carriage made from a Pumpkin!

Delicious treats...

And presents!

Wonderful Autumn Decor everywhere you looked...

Even blingy white pumpkins to take home!

Friends both new and old...

Sentimental moments...

And Silly ones too!

You might even recognize  a blogger or two!

Pattie~ The Shabby Chick and Rebecca ~A RE-purposed life
Bonnie~The Hopeless romantic was there too...but I didn't get a picture of her! Sorry Bonnie!

It was truly a magical day!
One that I know she will treasure too!

Fairytale moments leading the way to her "Happily Ever After"

Until next time...many blessings to you!
