Bridal Shower! March Card and Tag Swap!

Hello Friends!
The themes for the Swap for All Seasons swap in March
were Spring and yellow.

I don't use yellow much in my crafting, but I love this image
that has just a splash of yellow.
I love the spring-y background and her wistful look.
I wanted to keep the card simple
and let the lovely lady be the star.
A bit of vintage lace and vintage millinery flowers:

And my tag:

They say April showers bring May flowers...

I was hoping the showers would wait until my shower was held...
I hosted a bridal shower at my home
for my daughter's lovely sister-in-law last week. 
The sun was in and out but no rain!
The décor was organic, garden-y,
with a bit of herbs, yellow, burlap and chalkboard.  :)
 Her sister and sister-in-law were the real hostesses,
I  did the décor
with a little help from the bubble girls
(flower girls who blow bubbles).
Nine year old Ainsley made the favors herself,
homemade bath salts (below).
Don't they look great?

I love how these champagne glasses look
lined up on the burlap ribbon:

One of the hostesses made these lovely little tags
with a different herb for each one
and the trait that the herb stands for (above).

The caterer made a beautiful table of delicious food:

I had fun making this photo op
with a French garden shop look :)

OK.  Now I'm ready for April showers!
We dearly need them in Southern California.

OMG Lorraine, what a beautiful shower! Everything looked so lovely with your special Lorraine touch.
I don't use yellow that much either but your projects turned out great!

Lorraine, it all looks fabulous ! I could tell by your card and tags that the shower decorations would be A plus plus plus and they surely were. (())
