Rites and Bites of Passage. A Daughter’s Sparkly Shower!Misc. / July 24, 2015
I can credit my mother for several things that have come in very handy throughout my life: I know how to assert myself graciously but effectively, I know how to chew gum in public, and I know how to tie a fabulous bow. The latter came in very handy two weeks ago when I helped “assemble” my daughter’s dress for her fancy bridal shower. Accompanying the silk sash was a huge, rhinestone broach whose filagreed petals turned a plain bodice into a fabulously sparkly canvas for celebration and reflection. And even with all this glitter around us, what did the party planners worry about the most? Yes, the meal.
We spent a week meeting the family, eating amazing meals, and visiting old friends. And each of those events took place around a table. With that said, I thought the trip was worthy of a blog post, and a few photos. Why?
