The Rest of the Shower of Peonies

The Flute Chick wrote a poem about the different kinds of linen that you might use during married life.

Today we come to celebrate a new season in your life
we've gathered some linens to take you through your years as husband 
and wife.

(Great grandma's handkerchief)
Your wedding day is the first of many stories to be told
Great Grandma Adamek's handkerchief can be your "something old."

(beach towel)
After the ceremony it's time for some Caribbean-style fun
Pack your cheery beach towel for a honeymoon in the sun.

(Grandma Huyett's apron)
After a year of wedded bliss its anniversary number one
Host your first holiday feast in Grandma Huyett's pretty apron.

(KU cloth diaper)
When its time to have in mind all things pink and blue
We won't be surprised if your child's first words are "Rock Chalk, 
Jayhawk, KU!"

(peas and carrots dish towels)
Over the years you'll dine with friends and still enjoy cooking together
A pair of towels in the kitchen will remind you that it's "peas and 
carrots forever."

(crocheted pot holders made by Chris and Lois)
When the kids are grown and your hair is a little gray
pull these out to bake some cookies when grandkids come to play.

So there's a start to a wonderful marriage; we hope its very blessed
After all, just two more weeks til you wear your beautiful white dress!

Grandma Hirschmann knitted a blanket for the couple.

The Bride got many " totally fab" gifts 
The Bride was having a great time !

The food was great and so were the guests!

There was even a party crasher.  THE FATHER OF THE BRIDE!  ( actually he had to come and fix a bathroom pocket door problem, totally necessary! )

Here's the door fixer, party crasher, Father of the Bride serving his favorite sister, the favorite aunt on the father's side ( more Corgi humor )

I love parties, and presents and most of all FOOD !
