Hole in One . . .

on the 19th Green was exactly how it felt (after a night filled with thunderstorms & rain and a morning filled with clouds and a few sprinkles) when the sun came shining through, the grass dried, and a small breeze began to flicker the candles as guests began arriving to honor another special couple before their wedding day. Yes, another wedding shower on the acre. Our sweet neighbors' son, Shaun, will be getting married on June 5. Since most of the guests were from the "Gordon Golf Group" we thought a golf-themed couples' shower would be "par for the course." It was so much fun coming up with ideas to incorporate the theme of the invitation. Thanks Mande from The Monogram Monkey for all your help with the DIY Party Printables!! A BIG thanks, also, to Donna & Sid and Sandy & Bill for helping Danny and I.
My signature wedding decorations ~ the flamingo bride and groom ~ greeted guests while buckets of golf balls flickering with candlelight and chalkboard signs pointed the way down the drive to the 19th Green. Dear hubby even waited to offer the guests who thought the walk too much a ride down in the golf cart. Highlights from the serving tables ~~

Hubby said the white chocolate oreos looked like golf balls he had used; now what do you think he meant by that?

Homemade lanterns helped add light to the trees and above the serving tables while golf balls filled buckets and hurricane globes for centerpieces . . .

and even held placecards and identified selections on the menu. A brass garden tub held bottles of water with personalized labels for the new couple. Of course, I forgot to get a picture of the cute bucket Donna brought so I had to "fake" it on the table.

Lauren and Shaun, we wish you years of happiness, lots of "Pars" and many days filled with "Holes-In-One" as you embark on this new adventure.

Now, it's back to the sewing room to finish up the fabulous five's summer wardrobe and, of course, I'll be found in the garden pulling weeds and "smelling the roses." Plus, someone very special is turning 3 tomorrow ~~ can you guess which one it is????? Come back tomorrow to see!
