Around the World for Love

A thoughtful friend. A bride-to-be. A theme. Holly is getting married and Holly loves to travel. So for her bridal shower, we did an around the world theme, featuring her ten favorite places on earth. A course for each place involved fun research; who knew that more green jello is sold in Utah than all other states combined? Luckily Scottie brought me back spices from her latest trip to Cambodia and I happened to take a cooking class in Hanoi! With a Thai honeymoon on her horizon, we wish Holly and her new groom, lots of happy adventures.
