Sarah Richards and Saul Smith honored at ‘Honey Do’ shower

Sarah Richards of Greensboro and Saul Smith of Washington were honored on Saturday night, May 3, with a “Honey Do Couples Shower” at the home of Debbie Bennett. Sabrina and Jon Bennett hosted the evening with Mrs. Bennett.

For the festive occasion, the brideelect was lovely in ivory linen pants topped with a brown and ivory off the shoulder silken chemise.

The party was held under Mrs. Bennett’s three-bay carport illuminated by patio lights strung from column to column.

A black, white, and silver theme was used to decorate. Guest tables, covered in white linens topped with black overlays, were centered with large mercury glass lanterns on silver trays and sided with small vases of irises grown and gifted for the party by the prospective bridegroom’s great-grandmother, Corrine Bridges.

Heavy hors d’oeuvres were served from silver and glass trays and vessels tiered on black draped buffet tables. The buffet table was centered with a large round silver base topped with three mercury lanterns of varying sizes. Pork sliders, chicken tenders, meatballs, shrimp, spinach dip with scoops, fruit and cheese, nuts, cheese straws, and tea were served. Desserts were Martha Washington cookies, lemon squares, and cream cheese brownies. A mercury lantern on a small silver base accented the beverage station.

Two antique whiskey barrels topped with an old door served as the gift table. After the couple opened their gifts, the hostesses and host presented the couple with a “Gap Gift”- a Visa card to fill in some gaps in their china pattern.

Sixty guests attended. Special invited guests attending were the bride-elect’s parents, Donna and Tony Richards of Greensboro; the prospective bridegroom’s parents, Terrie and Marty Smith of Washington; his maternal grandparents, Mary and Charles Gosnell of Anderson; his paternal grandmother, Carolyn Smith of Washington; and his great-grandmother, Corrine Bridges of Hartwell.
