Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger for the over Fifties - What real women wear!

Sunday 10 July 2016

Today I'm looking forward to a shower.


No not looking forward to a rain shower, a wedding shower!
Not been to one before, so I gather it's a fairly new idea??!!  Have you heard of them or been to one?

My best friend's son is getting married at the end of this month, I'll be attending her future daughter-in-law's wedding shower.  The invite mentioned bringing a small gift for the Hen, by way of something along the lines of pegs, rubber gloves or wooden spoons.  So between me and middle daughter we've come up with the following:

Homemade frilly apron
Washing net bags
Rubber gloves
Oven mitts
Washing up liquid

All gathered in a silver box with a mauve bow - perfect.

Fancy a sweet treat?
Why not try this.......
