Marvelous is a family road trip to Charlotte, North Carolina for a quaint bridal luncheon.

The bride to be, Laura Grace greeted her guests in a cute colorful frock.

The event was held at Another Broken Egg where a light yet scrumptious array of edibles awaited us.

The chicken salad cups were a favorite, lightly tossed with mayo with an added crunch from the baked phyllo dough.

My favorite dish was the sweetest of course, the beignets. Straight from New Orleans, beignets are like a firmer donut enveloped in powdered sugar and warm on the inside. The powdered sugar caked my teeth with decadence and the jelly on the side was a refreshing pairing. I somehow forgot to grab a picture so the fruit will just have to do.

Oh and these little babies…

Clearly I left the banquet still hungry. 😉

After lunch, Laura Grace opened her gifts which were all ornaments she’ll use for her first Christmas tree with her soon-to-be hubby.

For my engaged friends out there, I thought the gift theme was a cute idea.

Since we were out of town guests, we headed over to the lady of the day’s home for an exciting evening, but not before dropping by our hotel, where we were each greeted with adorable gift bags filled with treats and town memorabilia.

If you’re a fan of small towns, Belmont, North Carolina is one to see. It’s right outside Charlotte with a welcoming environment and a lovely downtown storefront sandwiched between scenic views.

Our dinner hosts were quite charming and provided us with entertainment and a meal fit for the queen.
