A Sweet Bridal ShowerOctober 25th, 2010
As promised, I’ve got tons of pictures and details to share of my sister Laurel’s bridal shower. To match the invitation, most of the desserts were either pink or white. On the menu; a pink lemonade cake with sugar poppies (the brides wedding flower) I got from a local cake decorator, pink and white marshmallows, mini powered donuts, waffer cookies and peppermint knots. To drink, we had pink lemonade, blackberry IZZEs, Sophia Champagne and gin and tonics with a splash of grenadine.
For activities, I made a Couple’s Pop Quiz and custom cards for adult bingo. The main attraction, was a video my sister Allison made of Laurel’s fiancé answering a series of questions. Laurel then had to guess his response. It was so much fun and definitely the highlight of the night.
Lastly, for favors, I gave raspberry macaroons in boxes that I cut out on my SilhouetteSD. I was planning on making the macaroons myself but they didn’t turn out well (think Pepto Hershey Kisses) so I purchased some form a nearby bakery instead. I also made little cloth envelopes made to look like air mail envelopes with naughty scratch-it tickets inside.
All in all it was a great time and I was so happy to help see my sister off on this new chapter in her life!
