I had my wedding shower the weekend of the 15th, and I think a few others have had theirs in recent weeks.
Anyone want to share (funny) stories from their shower (whether it was 4 weeks or 4 years ago)?
My fiance's great aunt was invited but could not attend as her SIL passed away and she went to the funeral in OH. Her gift(s) made me laugh! Her grandmother was known to just put gifts in a garbage bag and tie them shut, so that's kind of what she did with the gifts she gave me, although she did wrap each individual item in a dish towel (practical- which I love).
She also put a little gift tag on each with a little note like "I have one of these pans and I love them" or on a cookbook "I know Feeley likes to eat so I hope you get some creative recipes from this"
One of the items she gave us was a set of plastic food storage containers and it came with a paragraph-long warning label about washing them first before use, etc. And she wrote "well duh" at the end of it. For like, 80-something she's still got quite a bit of spunk.
Another favorite gift was also a favorite because of the wrapping. FMIL's BFF came. She bought us these
and basically wrapped them in a thick piece of cardboard poster board so that the legs wouldn't poke through the wrapping paper. The poster board was of a presentation her granddaughter did at school about how to stay healthy and avoid germs. So I unwrapped this gift and was looking at a big germ and the happy birthday song (because you're supposed to wash your hands for as long as it takes to sing happy birthday twice). I was cracking up and I've kept it and told her I'm going to hang it on our door every time she stops by to visit.
