Miscellany Monday - A Southern Celebration

It's a beautiful fall Monday and time to share some Monday love with you.  And, love it is, all about we Southern gals hosting another pre-wedding affair.  Sit back, grab a cup of your favorite drink and enjoy!

Come on in......
 We can just about do these things with our eyes closed.  We have years and years of experience!  This was the entrance to the lovely home hosting the event.  Doesn't it look welcoming?


And, are they the cutest?  This is Vick and Sophia, a sweet, sweet couple and I've known Vick since the day he was born.  Their wedding will be Dec.14 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.


The couple to the left were the host and hostess and the couple on the right is the groom's parents.


This is 4 of the hostesses, there were 38 others.  Yes, you read that right, 38.  And, of course, we met a few weeks back and came up with a delicious menu and it was served in grand style and enjoyed by all who attended.



There were sweets of all descriptions, grilled beef tenders, marinated salad, hot wing dip, crab dip,  and lots of other tempting dishes.  There was certainly no reason for anyone to leave hungry.

And, between the hostesses there are some very talented women when it comes to floral design.  There was a beautiful fresh flower arrangement in every nook and cranny and all with a nice "fall flair."  Let me assure you that I contributed nothing to the floral decor, my talent was in the food department and what better for them to ask me to prepare than fudge.  Yes, I can  do that with my eyes closed too.

It's always fun to celebrate these young folks as they prepare to begin their lives together and it's especially nice when you  know that they are headed in the right direction.  Vick is one of the Associate Pastors of the Chapel on the Campus in Baton Rouge and he is working to finish up his seminary degree right now.  I'm sure the Lord has great things in store for he and Sophia.  And, no one celebrates better than we Southerners! ~smile~  

Blessings for this new week!

  6. I knew who that handsome young man belonged to as soon as I saw him. I know they must be so very proud of him. I had lunch with a friend here who grew up in B years ago, and we were discussing what a social place it was way back then and I told her that many of you ladies have continued that southern custom. Hopefully, those young women growing up there will see the need to continue that wonderful southern heritage of "partying well!"

    Isn't it so much fun to get together with friends you've had for years and plan a fun bridal party....Yes, we could do with our eyes shut but it certainly looks like there's some talent within your group of girl friends....
