A Southern Christmas Affair ........

My friends, if you know anything about us Southerners, we don't "just" do anything, we do it with "flair and style." ~big smile~
I could not miss the opportunity to share about one such affair that Hubby and I had the privilege of attending last evening.  It was a holiday bridal affair.  Combine those two and it can't help but make for an "evening to remember."

Forgive the quality of this, I took it with my IPhone and it is a bit grainy 
The affair took place in what is called "The Garden District" of Monroe, about 22 miles from there.
This is the lovely home that hosted the event.  Does it not just have such a warm and inviting glow!  And, how about that red door!
This is the lovely couple, Will and Jennilee,  for whom the affair was given.  Aren't they the cutest!
This is Hubby and me pictured with the brides parents.  We have known this sweet family for over 40 years.  We have shared many occasions with them over the years and hold their friendship very dear to our hearts.
   And, my precious friend, Martha, is the matriarch of this family. It was such a special treat that she was able to attend this event for her Granddaughter.  Please continue your prayers for her.

The home was decorated lavishly from "stem to stern."
There was a "touch of Christmas" in every available place and so tastefully done.
 The master designer of all this lovely decor is this fine Southern gentleman, Chris.  It just so happens that he is the Uncle of the bride.  He and his lovely wife, Ellen, could be called "the dynamic duo" for sure.  They can throw a Southern style affair that would rival anything at the Queen's Palace.  That's the truth, they are amazing and Hubby and I so enjoyed sharing in this delightful event.  Yep! you just can't beat a "Southern Affair!"

    I just scrolled down and got 'caught up' on your last few blogs. I'm telling you... those pictures and the Southern charm of each blog was just beautiful! I enjoyed every single one.

    nd now it's time to look toward all of the new possibilities for 2013... a brand new chapter, which I know God already has big plans for.
