They teamed up with The Woodlands Bride to host a fun vendors night out, complete with yummies from Grotto, Refuge Bar, and Dream Cakes.

A friend also mentioned to me that in Canada most families do not simply own one pattern of teacups, but rather end up … Continue reading Bridal Shower #2
So, as I reported in an earlier blog, I have 2 weddings and their respective showers this spring. On Saturday I attended the first shower: Bonnie’s. Bonnie was an intern at Heather’s Glen last year, and knows EVERYTHING there is to know about weddings.

I’m going to a “Linens and Lace” bridal shower next month! The super-cute invitation had lace on it- I’d never heard of that theme!
