Bridal Tea and Winter White

     What's not to love about a beautiful bride, a lovely home, and a positively spring like Sunday afternoon to set the stage for a lively come and go Bridal Tea? There were treats galore, lovely winter white flowers and a selection of beverages, both hot and cold, from which to choose. Our hostess with the mostess in whose home we held the Bridal Tea also spends her time as a wedding planner extraordinnaire, so she leaves no stone unturned when it comes to entertaining. She has also recently finished refurbishing her house (as if it needed it!) and her new decor set the perfect stage for the party. Just take a look!
The future mother-in-law, the beautiful Bride,
 her mom and a dear cousin
  The other hostesses and I brought the food -- parmesan crisps, creme de menthe brownies, lemon squares, baked brie, almond lace cookies, asparagus roll-ups, chicken salad in puffed pastry shells, and open-face cucumber sandwiches -- but our friend furnished the beverages, arranged the  flowers and opened up her home to the oohs and aahs of everyone!
     And at the center of the celebration was the bride herself, a lovely girl who will be lovingly welcomed into our hearts and homes. As the mother of two grown sons, the future mother-in-law has waited a long time to have another "girl" around. She has also prayed faithfully through the years for the woman God would bring as the wife for each son, and it was such a sweet joy to see the precious answer to all those prayers walking through the front door! "And my God will supply all your needs out of the magnificence of His riches in Christ Jesus... " Yes, indeed!
