  • Blair's Garden Party Bridal Luncheon

  • One Eleven South Main Bridgewater, Virginia

    Blair and her family & friends came together this past Sunday to celebrate her upcoming wedding in September.  Blair’s mom, Robin (aka her twin) channeled her inner Martha and created a garden party luncheon her guests wouldn’t forget.  From the exquisite venue, to the family collected tea cups and tea pots no detail was left out.  Floral fans were placed at each setting along with a succulent plant Blair’s grandmother grew, in you guessed it…a tea cup! The pink and green table clothes were adorned with paper butterflies, garden cut flowers and hand crocheted doilies. Guests were greeted by Blair and her sister Bryli (maid of honor) at the side gate while others enjoyed mimosas from the bar inside the Magnolia Cottage.  Close friends and family were busy in the Dinkle Tavern preparing the food and catching up on the happenings of their life.  Once everyone had arrived, Robin welcomed us and quoted one of her favorite “Precious Moment’s” Quotes from a special book given to her in celebration of her wedding, from her husband Charles (Blair’s Dad).  

    You are young and life is beginning in a wonderful way for you. The future reaches its welcoming hand with new, challenging things to do. And here is a prayer for you that you’ll walk with God every day, remembering always in whatever you do there is only one true, righteous way. May you trust His almighty wisdom and enjoy the fruit of His love. And life on earth will be happy as you walk with the Father above. 

    The shower continued with catching up, enjoying homemade food and treats and watching Blair open her thoughtful gifts from her friends and family.  I think some of the favorite gifts were handmade and personal items such as: monogrammed towels, a framed map art print of their “special” places, wall portraits, crocheted dish clothes,  Mr & Mrs sign, “Hoffman” flags for every season, wine rack and so many unique items.  Then there were all the “needed” items: like  a “Ninja” blender, special “white” towels…make sure to ask Blair about this one (wink, wink), AND all of the necessity kitchen and bathroom essentials! One other special touch…instead of cards, everyone was asked to bring a favorite recipe to share with the couple…yum we should have made copies for everyone!!  Blair did you and Tyler find a home for all of these lovely new and pretty items?  I know your guests sure enjoyed the afternoon together, I am sure you did as well!  Thanks for having us to celebrate with you, looking forward to the wedding in just over a month!  Blessings to you and Tyler!
