Of the bridal variety that is :-)
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.
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!
I had never played this game at a shower before, but it's a great game.
These precious cupcakes were made by the MOH.
She did such a beautiful job, and I love the cupcake towers.
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.
