Yesterday was my friend’s wedding shower! It was such an enjoyable time, and really one of the easiest showers we’ve ever thrown.
The bride wanted us to keep it simple, so we honored her request by hosting it at her mother’s home (which she was very kind to offer to us), catered in some food, set up some card tables which we decorated of course, and then everyone just chilled and had a great time!
We served tea sandwiches, fruit kabobs, vegetable trays, lemon and kolachke cookies, little candies, and the mother of the bride made this deliciously creative jello mold with edible flowers…it was so sweet!
Instead of ordering a big cake, we made cupcakes which we frosted with strawberry, chocolate and fluffy white frosting and decorated with engagement rings (which later was so funny to see all the women put the rings on and talk about how they were going to go home and show their men…ha ha!).
The favors we made were wine charms in sets of four, which were a hit! We worked very hard on them (time consuming but worth it) and they turned out great! I was so happy everyone seemed to really like them.
The tables were decorated with purple and white tablecloths, flowers and candles. It really turned out lovely!
Outside, we decorated the tree branches (which were just starting to bud) with very long strands of curling ribbon in light blue, spring green and white. After the branches were all decorated, the long strands of ribbon blew in the wind, and it just looked so pretty. I forgot to get a picture of it! Oops. So you’ll just have to try and picture it. It really did look cool!
The day flew by of course, but it was such a wonderful time!
Congratulations Leeanne & Mike!
