Spring is finally here, and it won't be long and it will be June. We all know what that means, don't we? Weddings! June has always been known as the wedding month, though I don't know why. It seems there are more weddings in September now.
I have a granddaughter getting married the end of August, so no a June bride, but there will some bridal showers coming up before long.
In case you are giving a bridal shower for someone, you might be interested in this little game that was played at a shower I attended decades ago. It is a little story about the bride and groom, but with some blank spaces. The ladies are to fill in those blanks with items from the kitchen to complete the story. I will admit that the younger generation might not know what some of these things are, but the older ladies should be able to get most of them.
Like I did in a previous post with a game, I will give you the story with the blanks, and tomorrow I will give you the answers.
