A Fall Bridal Shower to Remember!

It has been a very busy weekend here in the Monkey House. My cousin, Ellie, is getting married in January and we had planned to host a High Tea bridal shower for her on August 31, but alas, we were foiled by our friend, Hurricane Gustav, and due to the mandatory hurrication, it was not to be. So, troopers that we are, we regrouped and replanned, and came up with a fall coed shower theme. Here is the wording on the invitation:

The party was planned, invitations mailed
The tea was brewed, but everyone bailed.
Gustav rolled in so we must try again
And this time we'll honor Ellie AND Ben
Summer is gone and autumn is here
Out with the tea and in with the beer!

And, of course, some pictures for your viewing pleasure...
