Today was the shower at the new Wharncliffe Hall. Cheryl sent out the invitations a couple of weeks ago and today was the day. I made cheese trays. I bought some glass dishes at the $1 store (gotta love that store - the best deals in the world) and made up 4 plates of cubed cheese, pepperoni, strawberries, and grapes. People made sandwiches - there were chopped veggies and pickles galore. I didn't know what to expect at this shower - I have never been to something like this. The Hall was rebuilt over the winter and everything in the kitchen had to be thrown out and every dish, pot, pan, silverware, slow cooker etc had to be washed. The invitations let people know what the hall needed. We received toilet paper, paper towels, salt, pepper, pumpkin pie spice, dish soap, oil, pot holders, dish cloths, dish towels - you name it and we got it. They were wrapped up like presents and Cheryl opened them in front of everyone. She will send out scrape booking thank you notes. There was so much food left over. Including some big chocolate chip cookies - we split everything - including the cookies!!
The Hall still needs more stuff but it was quite an exciting afternoon - I met new people and watched some loyal locals support their Hall. It was an afternoon well spent. There were even men attending.
