This past weekend goddesses gathered for a shower for my future daughter-in-law. It was an enchanting and lovely ladies luncheon where wefeasted on finger foods and took delight in showering the bride to be with loveand gifts from the heart.

The bride has a passion for fashionable shoes and her sister and mother taking note, provided us with already baked cookies, colorful icings and decorations to design an edible shoe fashion. This was a wonderful way tocreate something sweet and delicious while chatting about the latest in shoes.

We were all given the same large shoe shaped cookie cutter in a bowed bag as a favor Now we can craft our own shoe fashions for ladies luncheons and showers in the future, reminding us of this special day and the delectable.
