Alyssa Wills guest of honor at brunch, baby shower Sept. 23

Mrs. Scott Wills of Thomson, the former Alyssa Stewart of Rayle, was entertained at a brunch and baby shower on Saturday, September 23, in the County Line Baptist Church Fellowship Hall.

Hostesses for the occasion were her sister, Mrs. Paul Wright of Washington; her aunts, Mrs. Chad Williams of Lexington, Mrs. Rodney Shedd and Mrs. Darryl Shedd, both of Rayle; also, Mrs. Benji McAvoy of Washington and Mrs. Brian Kathol of Augusta.

A woodsy theme was used throughout the fellowship hall. The entrance held a grapevine wreath accented with a large blue bow on the door, white pumpkins, and asparagus ferns.

The guest book table, covered in white and accented with champagne tulle bows, held a vase of gypsophila and a nest of bluebirds. As guests were greeted, they were given baby handprints to give advice to the expectant mother.

Guests’ tables were covered in white cloths and centered with wood rounds, Mason jars accented with blue bows filled with bouquets of gypsophila, and miniature woodland bears, rabbits, and blue and white pumpkins.

Another table, covered in white, held wood logs covered in moss and an antiqued white wood letter “L.” Also on the table were deer antlers that belonged to the expectant father. This table also displayed baby items belonging to the expectant parents.

The gift table was covered with a white cloth with a blue satin overlay and was accented with a bouquet of gypsophila.

Puddled burlap on a white cloth decorated the food table. Centering the table was an antique wooden box with an arrangement of cedar, pine, gypsophiloa, and wild turkey feathers that also belonged to the expectant father.

Guests enjoyed a brunch of sausage balls, spinach quiche, fruit tray, monkey bread, pumpkin fudge, monogrammed pumpkin and bowtie cookies, pimento cheese sandwiches, juice, coffee, and tea.

The hostesses presented Mrs. Wills a gift card to Babies-R-Us.

Forty-five guests were invited. Among those attending were prospective grandmothers, Mrs. Tim Stewart of Rayle and Mrs. Frank Wills of Thomson. Out-of-town guests included Mrs. Kenneth Matthews of Carlton, Mrs. Jeanna Phillips of Comer, and Mrs. William Hopkins of Thomson.
