The taste and eye appeal were equal in this fruit tray. Fresh, sweet, fruit were a welcomed addition in the hot summer evening.
Pictures of the honored couple, that were captured by their brother-in-law, graced the food table and wall.
The bouquets of color coodinated flowers were picked from relative's gardens, and arranged by his talented aunt.
The lavender paper plates were decorated with copied pictures of the bride and groom, and covered with a clear plastic plate. What a brilliant idea! The girls in this family certainly are gifted in the ability to plan a party, and they do make the best party sandwiches ever!!!
The bride's color choices for the wedding are lavender and coral, and looked so good on the food table. The flowers skattered on the front of the table were done by cutting off the stems of the flowers and glueing magnet disks on the back of the flower and using another magnet disk on the other side of the tablecloth. Idea from Martha Stewart.
The groom served iced and hot coffee drinks, that happen to be his specialty. Not only is he a handsome barista, but he has a fun, caring personality to go with it. Great combination!
Mini cheeseballs made from a recent Sandra Lee magazine,recipe. I will share the simple recipe with you at a later date. The hearts were cut out of orange peppers, with a tiny cookie cutter. The other hearts were cut out of slices of sharp cheddar. Platter was served with pretzel sticks, pita chips and crackers.
The favors of the evening were gorgeous cookies were baked and decorated by the future groom's oldest sister. I was so impressed with her talent. Along with the intricate detail, came the delicious taste too.
Her she is, the cookie baker and designer of the evening.
The best way to end a bridal shower was with tiny dessert creations by their dear sister-in-law. With many people chipping in to help and each addlng their contributions, it produces one memorable evening for everyone. I must tell you, as their aunt, I just cannot believe these kids are grown ups. Truly, it seems like only yesterday I was babysitting them and driving some of them to school. Let's see, where does that place me in the scheme of things?
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
