Shower!

Of the bridal variety that is :-)

Sea of Mimosas

My dear friend C is getting married in September, and Saturday morning was spent celebrating that. I'll be one of her bridesmaids so I volunteered my help to the Maid-of-Honor, whose parents were hosting the event. We had a nice day, and the setting was beautiful.

Tables at the Shower

The event was mostly catered, but the MOH requested that I bring a fruit salad and a green salad to supplement the catering. I ran behind making them and getting ready in the morning and as a result- no pictures.

You aren't as sorry as I am because they were actually very pretty. I made them to match C's wedding colors (burgundy red and lime green). Thus, the fruit salad was all red- watermelon and strawberries- and the green salad was all green- romaine, spinach, cucumber, avocado, lime vinaigrette. I pat myself on the back, I'm so witty :-P So you must imagine them.

I also prepared the games for the party. We had a quiz on who knew C the best, and a list of famous couples to match up. My personal favorite was the Price is Right game below- I purchased these items from Target and everyone had to guess how much they cost!

Guess the Price of these Products!

I had never played this game at a shower before, but it's a great game.

These precious cupcakes were made by the MOH.

Mimosas and Cupcakes

She did such a beautiful job, and I love the cupcake towers.

Cupcake Tower

My selection, red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. I had a few bites, but the afternoon heat stole my appetite.

I'm so glad C has this memory to keep forever.

What a gorgeous bridal shower :0)

Ahh, that cupcake tower is so lovely!! Yeah, the heat is dreadful in terms of having an appetite (meaning, it's totally nonexistent for me when the weather is this hot - not good!).

By the way, I emailed you yesterday - thanks again for providing your email address! :0)

Ah, I wish one of my girlfriends was getting married. I love reliving my own recent bridal shower and events like this through our friends and family. Looks like it was a lovely shower and a lovely day.

Sad you couldn't stay to play with us, but those cupcakes looked fabulous!

Are those cupcakes from Sprinkles?...They look EXACTLY like them

That looks like a fun bridal shower. I love the Price is Right game...they should find a way to turn Plinko into a shower game.

Tasha,

The Maid of Honor made the cupcakes for the party herself- she was really proud of how well they turned out!

I know she would be tinkled to know you thought they were professionally made. They DO look good don't they?

That is a really pretty arrangement for the shower. I did muffins and mini muffins for my sisters baby shower, it was a hit,as they look nice and so much easier on the host as you do not have to cut each piece of cake.
Love your blog.
