My BFF is getting married in November and yesterday I threw her Bridal Shower.
Since we are old and tired, we both agreed to a mellow low-key affair with just good food and good conversation (and lots of wine!).
Here are some things from yesterday.
My "Panty Tree" became a Panty "Clothes Line" ('cause I ran out of
energy time to look for a tree...).
Bride had to guess who brought which undies!
|I found the Bloomers/Pantaloons! YAY!|
My invitations were Cherry Blossom-themed so I ran with it and made everything
pretty shades of cherry pink and light pink.
Bride LOVES chocolate... like LOVES... Like "I-will-knock-you-down-to-get-to-those-desserts" LOVES!
So rather than have one simple dessert (like cake), I made a Dessert Bar... all Chocolate.
|Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond)'s Pots de Creme|
|Ina's "Beatty's Chocolate Cake" as cupcakes|
|Nestle Toll House Easy Double Chocolate Chip Brownies! (from the back of the chocolate chip bag!)|
It (the Dessert Bar) was a scene and I seriously got taken out!
|Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies with the Williams-Sonoma Message-in-a-Cookie cutters!|
Overall... a lovely day.
Everyone had a great time!
