1. Apron of Kitchen Tools. The bride-to-be walks into the room wearing a kitchen apron that has many kitchen utensils sewn onto it or in the pockets. She parades around in a circle so everyone can see, then leaves the room. Each guest gets a piece of paper and has to write down as many kitchen tools as they can remember that were on the apron. Whoever remembers the most correctly wins a small prize and the bride-to-be gets to keep the apron and all the tools.
2. Adjectives. You are handed a sheet of paper that has half of it folded over and taped, so all that can be seen is a list of blank lines. Guests are instructed to fill in every blank with a different adjective. Once completed, you unfold the part that was taped down and it reveals a "story" about the bride's wedding shower and includes all of the adjectives you wrote in. Some of the stories turned out pretty funny!
Ryan had a great time eating his first watermelon of the season and lots of other yummy food, including cake and ice cream. But his favorite thing was playing with the other kids and getting to see Uncle Andy and Aunt Kim, whom we haven't seen since Christmas!
