Retro Bridal Shower – Part 1

I don’t know how many times I can say how grateful I am to have the most wonderful people in my life. I feel so lucky and so fortunate to have grown up with such loving people. My retro bridal shower was beyond my expectations and was the most wonderful shower.

The decorations were amazing!

And a paper doll game… so much fun! Each doll has a piece of fabric attached that gives you a clue to the type of wife. Example: Red tape is a politicians wife.

Wonder-About-Gleasonland – Part 1

I’m a lucky girl. I was not only blessed with a wonderful family but I am also lucky enough to have found a wonderful man who loves me and with him comes fantastic future in-laws.  I am so excited to join the Gleason family, they have made me feel so welcome and at home.  For those of you who know me, you know that I love themed parties. I have found the perfect family to join.

When I entered the shower I was immediately handed a drink in my very own special glass. Hand painted to match the ” Alice in Wonderland” theme with the words ” Kyle’s queen of hearts”.

I was also given an apron so I would fit in with the theme.

What would a shower be without some games.

Bake a cake without a recipe…. Clearly I have no idea how to do that.
