Wedding Shower-Lucky in Love

My friend's fiance proposal was placed inside a silver fortune cookie, which helped me decide on the theme for this shower. There was a large guest list, so the invitations were pretty simple, and all guest were asked to bring a story about how and when they met Sandye, and they placed their stories near the picture of her that was closest to that age.

The food had to be Kosher, and one of her favorite foods is sushi. A student taught me how to fold these little cranes (that also represent luck. Dessert include Chocolcate Dipped Fortune Cookies, and Chinese Take-Home Boxes filled with Almond Sugar Cookies.

Shower Games

Favors were donations made in honor of each guest to the American Heart Association, in Honor of the Groom's Father.

Awesome shower! You seem to do a lot of them - how fun.

Thanks for joining my Scrappy Saturdays. To make the scrappy box - you might be able to find them by looking up explosion books. These I learned from a friend and I'm not ready to put the tutorial out there since they're really hard to explain how to do the lid unless you see it in person and plus I sell them here:

At craft/scrapbook stores, they sell something similar where it's a plastic box and you just add paper to it.

@Kim....I have to share this story. I had a student move here directly from Koreo. He knew no English upon his arrival, and I had no oragami skills, he was the master. He brought me a new creation daily. I had him teach the class how to make a crane, and then started looking for a reason to use my new skill. ;o) It's just about the only oragami piece I can make, works!
