Karla Dawson Grimaud was guest of honor at a baby shower on Saturday, July 21, given by Donna Hardy, Tricia Bridges and Kristin Stevens of Pitts at the Hardy home on the Lincolnton Road.

The event was to honor the awaited August arrival of Rebekah Le- Anne Grimaud.

Mrs. Grimaud was presented a corsage of lime green button chrysanthemums and aqua blue gypsophila tied with blue ribbon. Matching corsages were also presented to the prospective grandmothers, Phyllis Dawson of Washington, and Vickie Grimaud of Mocksville, N.C.

Brunch was served from the dining table that was covered with a sheer white and satin tablecloth appliqu├ęd with sage green leaves. A bouquet of lime green button chrysanthemums, aqua blue gypsophila and tree fern accented the table.

Guests enjoyed a brunch of blueberry and poppy seed mini-muffins, sausage and egg and ham and egg casserole, sausages wrapped in bacon and baked in brown sugar, fresh fruits with sour cream dip, and salted nuts with citrus fizz punch and coffee to drink.

The hostesses presented Mrs. Grimaud a Pack ‘n’ Play as a hostess gift.

Approximately 70 guests were invited. Other special guests in addition to prospective grandmothers were prospective great-grandmothers, Frances Hensley of Chatsworth, Esther Dawson and Martha Jean Grimaud of Washington.

Unable to attend were prospective paternal grandmother, Louise Grimaud, who was out of town but sent her well wishes; and prospective paternal great-grandmother, Agnes Bridges, who was ill.
