Sharing a Bridal Shower Today

How fun this shower was! Can't share all the pictures but did want to share a few...
 The Bride-to-be chose different shades of pink so that made it easy peasy.

The Cake: Bottom layer....chocolate....middle layer was strawberry with strawberry jam...top layer was pineapple with orange jello. And of course the buttercream icing...



The butterflies added character to the cake.


We didn't cut the top layer. We let the bride-to-be keep it to share with the groom-to-be....but the rest of the cake looked good when cut!


I am assuming the cake was good. I only carried about 4 slices back home! Ha!

The lovely Bride-to-Be...


Here is a fast, easy & cheap punch to make:


Recipe...Pink lemonade in can. Use 4 scoops, sugar to taste and add 1/2 of a sprite. Mix up and top with lemons. Make it as sweet as you want with added sugar or stronger by adding more lemonade.

For a little favor to give out to the guests my niece Stephanie made the little initial cookies. Cute!!!!


We wrapped them in pretty silver and white cellophane paper and tied it off with pink ribbon and placed them in a basket. This was a big hit with the guests.


More decor....




 We used some pretty snack plates with cups for the shower. They always give a touch of elegance to a shower.



Ooh, and the food was so good. We had so much food!!!! Can't show it all but look at some of the tasty treats we had!





The Bride-to-be and her lovely Mom


Lots of nice gifts!


We tried to hide this gift from her but she caught us!

Rachel Ray of course!

And I must show this one picture...I caught this sweet moment on camera! Great-grandmother with her great-granddaughter! Priceless! And....that little one just so happens to be my granddaughter! God is good!


I hope you have enjoyed the bridal shower with me today. I've had fun!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. Oh wow. This was so timely. We are doing a bridal shower for my daughters best friend at the end of April. Her colors are Robins Egg blue and black. Party City has EVERYTHING in that color scheme so we are thrilled. We are doing a Sweet Bar (they even had the cards and banners for that) which will feature the cake, cookies, Hershey Kisses and tons more goodies. However, we are stumped on a menu. It will be a luncheon but we want easy appetizer type foods that won't involve any cooking or heating up. Your menu items looked great. If you could send me some food ideas to Mamawsplace@gmail.com I would really appreciate it. I am overwhelmed with all the choices out there. Thanks for the ideas on the punch. Sounds delicious and her cake was beautiful. Sounds like you had a great time.
