Thank you for all of the love and support this little corner of the internet has received over the past several years. As friends and family members were getting married, their weddings fueled the inspiration for this blog. But as seasons of life change, my focus, along with those nearest and dearest, shifted away from the wedding planning stage and I began to neglect this blog.

I have decided to indefinitely retire Calligraphy by Shannon in an effort to pour my attention into my lifestyle blog The Scribble Pad where I will be merging past and future inspiration boards and parties. You will still be able to place orders for calligraphy, custom invitations, and hand stamped items through my etsy shop. And as always, you can stay in touch with me under my moniker, The Scribble Pad on my blog, etsy shop, facebook, and even twitter! I look forward to sharing this new adventure with you.

Country Fair Bridal Shower

Old fashioned country fairs hold a warm place of nostalgia in our hearts. They bring back memories of childhood for countless generations. Fairs are full of warm home-made pies, field games, checkered table clothes, and waving flags.

Well, this is exactly the emotion that the Maid of Honor had in mind for her baby sister's bridal shower!
The bridesmaids and ladies from church each brought a homemade pies from peach to cherry. We spend the day before creating a custom banner of waving flags. Tables were set up in typical old fashioned fair style. Field games included a bouquet toss into the baskets pictured above. It was a fantastic setting, a beautiful day, and certainly brought back floods of memories for everyone in attendance.

Guests were thanked with the family's whoopie pie specialty, a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition. Each treat was individually wrapped in custom labeled baggies.

And the guest finished off the table with piles of gifts which are wrapped in perfection - the bride's favorite colors, pink and green! It was the perfect bridal shower set in rural PA!
