The future in-laws of my younger daughter Laura had a lovely bridal shower for her on Saturday in Redfield, her fiance's hometown. I believe she is going to enjoy being part of Jamie's family. She was able to meet lots of new people who knew Jamie as he grew up - such as a catechism teacher or a neighbor. Naturally they also shared some great stories about him with us.
Instead of bringing the traditional guest book, I made that little signature quilt for her. The guests all signed it and there is still room for more signatures if she has another shower. Or she may decide to bring it to her wedding reception too. You can see the quilt on the table in this photo.
Another great idea from this shower - every guest addressed the envelope for a thank you note. That way she had everyone's correct name and address.
