This weekend, Jessie’s mom and Aunt Missy threw her a bridal shower at the historic Allam House in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Mom and I embarked on a little road trip North of the Mason-Dixon to join the party.
The house, built in 1710, was beautiful and quaint and well-maintained. I mean, check out the old stove in the back of the living room.
When Jessie’s mom brought the cake out, I nearly cried. Not sure why — I promise I’m excited for April 27!
Jessie is clearly happiest when filling a plate of food.
I made these recipe cards for Jessie’s friends and family to start filling her recipe collection.
I searched for months for the perfect recipe box, and voila! I’m not telling you where I got it though because they didn’t have many and I need to go get myself one.
Watching Jessie struggle with Crate & Barrel’s expert wrapping was so fun.
It’s a pitcher!
And a homemade toilet paper cover.
I was working hard to write the most illegible list of gifts for thank-you notes while Momma Reynolds attempted to fill her Gift Bingo card.
Jessie’s cousins constructed the ribbon bouquet for her rehearsal.
A hand made blanket from Mommom.
I’m including this sad blurry picture of us to encourage Mom to send the non-blurry one she took!
After the shower, the light was SO pretty. But of course Jessie was being a jerk about letting me take her picture, so these were my best efforts.
