I want to thank Beverly for hosting us all these great years. It has been such a pleasure to meet all of you sweet ladies and it is mainly though Pink Saturday that I have connected with you so thank you again Beverly for giving me an outlet and an opportunity to meet so many talented, wonderful ladies!
I wanted to share some pictures of the Mother's Tea I held last weekend to honor my mom and my grandma. I didn't get to do it on Mother's Day weekend because I was working but I think last weekend was just as special. First I want to show you the sweet bottles and baskets I made them. This is the Marie Antoinette bottle I made for my mom. Oohh La La! Isn't she lovely? I also made a bottle for my grandma. It is just as sweet with a little bird cage embellishment on it. I had so much fun decorating these antique bottles.
Here is a picture of the baskets favors I made them. I used peet pots and painted the outside. I glued music paper on the inside and then embellished them with lace trim, glitter, flowers, and ribbon. I think they turned out so sweet! I put some Jordan almonds and dutch mints in them. They were the perfect favor and place card holder.
Here are some pictures of the tea table. I decided to have the tea out on my covered patio in the back yard because it was the PERFECT weather for dining al fresco.
I bought these dishes several years ago and they have violets on them so they were the inspiration for the tea table decor. Most of us pink lovin' gals like purple too!
Here I am with my sweet mama. She looked so pretty with her crochet sweater and she made the flower on her shirt and in her hair. They were so adorable!
Here are the three generations. I need to hurry up and have my own little girl so it can be four generations! (But I'd like to get married first.) I know I am a very blessed woman to have such a wonderful mom and grandma. They have been good examples to me of how to be a lady and how to live a good life. I was watching American Idol last week and the lovely Lauren Alaina sang the most beautiful song called "Like My Mother Does". If I could get up on the stage and sing I would sing this song to my mom. The words of that song really describe who she is and what she means to me. I hope you will listen to it here. If the link doesn't work I encourage you to go to youtube and find the video. It is such a beautiful song and you will be blessed when you hear it. Mom I love you and I am so blessed to be your daughter. I am who I am because of your love and guidance all these years. Thank you so much for believing in me and supporting me. You are the best mom in the world and I am so blessed to be your daughter.
I hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend and a blessed Pink Saturday! Enjoy your day!
Much Love and Blessings to You!
