girl, the news coming as a surprise, is a charming form of announcement. The invitations are simple notes written in the first person.
A Shower A "shower" for the bride-elect may shortly follow the luncheon. The invitations are sent by the girl at whose house the shower is to be, and read:
Dear Miss Brown:
I am giving a linen shower for Miss Smith on Friday at four o'clock. Will you not come, and, if possible, send your remembrance to me in the morning, as I am planning a surprise?
Trusting I may see you on Friday,
- Very cordially yours,
- Frances White
