Couple of weeks ago, Scarlett had her first Bridal Shower!  This was given by her sister and one of her bridesmaids.  Now, they had a conundrum... where to host it.  Jessica and Heather both live out here in the country.  The rest of the girls live in Chicago, and most of them don't own cars. They discussed a restaurant, and finally came up with the perfect solution.

The hosted it at Scarlett's apartment.

It was just lovely.  Now I won't lie, I had SWOLLEN eyes from crying over my sweet Millie, and I'm sure some of her friends thought 'wow, Scarlett's mom needs a serious face lift' (they are right, but that's another story).

The girls made a TON of delicious snacks, and had a tea party theme, complete with fancy china! The party favors were a darling cookie made to look like a three tier wedding cake with a rose on top and a candle, made in a tea cup.

I didn't take many pictures, but here's a smattering... 

 Jessica jotting down the gifts.

And Scarlett got such nice gifts! Wonderful kitchen things, great entertaining things, and some sorely needed practical things.  She made a haul... and she didn't have to drag it all home to put it away. She was home! Great plan.

Her sister, grandma and I gave her the always wonderful Kitchen Aid Mixer.  In a fun retro green, actually pistachio.  I expect great things to come from the mixer Scarlett....
