Hosting & Toasting: My Sister's Honeymoon Shower






"Off to New Zealand they will go as the new Mr. and Mrs.
Join us to help them celebrate with love and best wishes!"

You can probably tell that I love hosting parties - give me any reason to celebrate and I will quickly get the bubbly cold and begin planning every little detail. This weekend we were so excited to welcome our family and friends into our home to shower my sister and her fiance with lots of love and laughs before their wedding day in May. 
The beautiful Bride-to-Be
So happy that our Aunt could join us for the celebrations




My Aunt & Mom
The evening was filled with good food, a variety of New Zealand wines from vineyards that my sister and her fiance will be visiting during their honeymoon, toasts to the Bride and Groom and catching up with many dear friends and family.
