This past Saturday we had our engagement party/ornament shower and it was sooo much fun!!! My parent''s hosted it and the house was beautifully decorated and the food was delish! My dad made way too much food of course, but we''ve been enjoying left overs all week.

After dinner and visiting we opened our gifts and we got so many wonderful Christmas tree ornaments and my parents even got us a few Christmas decorations next year for our house. I love Christmas so I know I''ll have a lot of fun making our home festive. My FMIL/FBIL gave us a joint gift of a mini rosemary Christmas tree with the "Bride''s Tree Ornaments" from Germany. FI is part German so it fit well. There are many different ornaments ranging from a bird, to a rose, to a pine cone even. Each of the ornaments symbolized a different meaning. When I get more time I''ll type out them all for you. All in all it was a lot of fun celebrating with everyone. My Dad gave a toast and it was very special!
Now I''m ready for the big day...well not quite, but mentally I''m ready!

P.S. We got NO "First Christmas Together" ornaments surprisingly! I''m thinking everyone thought at least someone would do that and that we didn''t need more then one!

Here''s a few pics to share! Enjoy...

Here was our cake that my Mom surprised us with! It was so adorable. You may not be able to tell but the balls are big ornaments. The top one has our date then the green one had FI's name and the white one had my name (I painted them out of the pic). It was red velvet cake and it was delish! Yummy!

Brides Tree Ornaments

According to the old German tradition, the
tree of a newlywed couple should include
these twelve ornaments to insure blessing
and happiness for their life together........
An Angel - God''s Guidance in the Home
A Rose - Beauty and Affection
A Rabbit - Hope and Faith
A Teapot - Hospitality
A Pine Cone - Motherhood and Fruitfulness
A Santa - Unselfishness and Goodwill
A House - Shelter and Protection
A Fruit Basket - Generosity
A Bird - Happiness and Joy
A Flower Basket - Good Wishes
A Heart - True Love
A Fish - Christ''s Blessing
The meaning of each ornament is detailed on
the certificate which accompanies the
decorative wooden gift box. This makes a
wonderful gift for the newlywed couple or as
a wedding shower presentation.


This was such a thoughtful gift from FMIL/FBIL. I will always treasure these precious ornaments and their meaning.
