Joe + Stacie : Bridal Shower

I love parties ... actually, I love planning parties. I get that from my mom. She does an amazing job! She and my grandma put on this amazing shower for my cousin Joe and his beautiful bride-to-be, Stacie, over Thanksgiving. Everything was perfect, from the cake (Cakes by K Renee) to the venue (Cascades Manor House Fireside Room) to the favors (Braun Family Christmas Cookies). By the way, the cookies are fantastic, so I included the recipe below - I think it's the nutmeg that makes the difference. YUM!

So anyway, way to go Mom and congratulations Joe & Stacie!! I'm so thankful to have you both as family!!
