So, as indicated, I was up at the crack of dawn on Saturday (Halloween!) to launder myself and put the finishing touches on the bridesmaid tea party. I arrived at the Gunn household wedding central at 10am and walked right into the middle of Project Hair.

Jess was first one under the spray nozzle 😛

I loved Jess’s curls, so I ordered the same ‘do.

Erin’s niece Gretchen became a fairy:

We all helped Siobhan with some last-minute cake tasks …

… because you can never have enough pumpkin cake …

And then we got the tea underway:

We started with these scrumptious scones that Jess had brought from Whole Foods:

Once again, I tried to remember that I had to stuff myself into a dress in mere hours …

… but I obviously had to try every single scone, too. And no dress is worth missing out on deliciousness!

The bride was a vision of calm collection and popped a seat for a cup also:

Finally, 1:00 rolled around and it was time for the entree!

We worked on our nails while nibbling.

And the sandwiches were delicious, if I do say so myself 😀 I made cucumber and cream cheese on German Wheat bread, smoked turkey and Earl Grey honey butter on pumpernickel, and spicy bacon and cheddar on seeded rye:

Dessert was dark chocolate-covered strawberries, special request of the bride:

In our last bout of manual labor as bridesmaids, we whipped up some slamming bouquets.

Yayyyyyyyyy fall colors:

And then we were off to the dresses!
