I hosted a SURPRISE Bridal Shower for my niece, Jaime…on Sunday, July 29th of this year. I created the Bridal Shower Guest Book through Shutterfly, for Jaime, to personalize the shower, as I wanted to incorporate meaningful pictures and design in the book.
There is a touching story behind the sunflower, which graces almost every page in the book. Stephen’s mother (my sister-in-law and friend) passed away 2 years ago without knowing that Jaime and Stephen were expecting their first child (her first grandchild) Ella. The sunflower was Carol’s favorite flower and at her parents wedding in September of this year…little Ella will walk down the aisle carrying a single sunflower, signifying her Grandma’s spirit and presence at the wedding. What a touching tribute to Carol…daughter ~ sister ~ mother ~ grandmother ~ friend…
The book contains pages for Family and Friends to write special messages and heartfelt wishes to Jaime…Wedding Day Tips, Date Night Ideas, All About Jaime and Secrets to a Long and Happy Marriage, as well as pages for guests and gifts…so nothing is forgotten.
Well the shower was last Sunday…what a beautiful day! The weather was perfect and a great time was had by all. Everyone enjoyed writing their messages and advice for Jaime in the Guest Book. After the shower was over…Jaime and I read through the book. It was full of love and advice from Family and Friends…what an amazing keepsake…thanks Shutterfly!
