Deep South Party: Southern Wedding Shower

Last year in August, I threw a lovely shower for a friend who was having a very Southern wedding in Charleston. It was a celebration in burlap, hydrangeas. This year a friend of our family since childhood is getting married, and I jumped at the chance to help my mother with their Southern shower.

It all started with these lovely invitations from

Pears in a wide-mouth jar helped arrange the cotton stalks.

Cotton stalks with limelight hydrangeas and magnolia leaves were a beautiful centerpiece atop a burlap overlay.

Mini mason jars with cream roses and cream candles added a simple but elegant decoration in the kitchen area.

These cakes were so moist (yikes, hate that word) that they were literally falling off the forks.
Everyone was fighting over not having to cut the cakes because it was soo messy but delicious.

Fruit placed on bamboo skewers was a fun way to serve the traditional "shower" fruit.

The amazing women who made this day possible.

And because I can....
Check out my amazing cousin (Graham) and best friend (Ashley) of Scobey Photography.
A wedding they shot a while back was featured in the winter of edition of Get Married Magazine.
I already knew they were amazing, but this just adds to the pride!

  1. It was a gracious but very comfortable event. Loved every minute of it and really appreciate all the hard work that went into pulling it all together. The decorations, refreshments and the lovely home were great!! Kay Goodin, mother of the groom
