We (the mothers, aunts, sisters-in-laws to be, sister-in-law, cousins, friends, etc.) hosted a wedding shower last week. It was a lot of fun; delicious food, beautiful decorations, fun games, amazing gifts, and a great chance to "catch up" with family and friends.
Sarah likes the colors pink and purple, and she also likes polka dots. Hence, the theme of the shower. I will show the decorations in a later post. The buffet included Minestrone Soup, Baked Potato Soup, Pistachio Salad, Halle Berry Salad, Farfalle Chicken Pasta Salad, Caprese skewers, Fruit Ka-bobs, Vegetables and Dip, Rolls, and Cake Pops and Cookies for dessert. (I may have forgotten a few things on the buffet, it was yummy!) One of my jobs was to make the decorated cookies, and I had a ball!
Sarah will be a beautiful June bride..only about 7 weeks to go...
I made about 40 cookies for approximately 35 guests. This is one of the platters, the polka dots and flowers were fun to make. I tried to use some of the wording that was on the banners, made by my very creative daughter.
I never know how may cookies to show, but I try to get close enough so that others can see the details if they want to decorate cookies, too.
Wedding cakes, and more wedding cakes!
Bridal Gowns!Here is a second platter of cookies. I was a little disappointed with the engagement ring decorations, but I have some new ideas for next time. They need a little more filigree on the bands!
Sarah and Brad, we hope that your wedding day will be even better than your wedding day dreams!
And that you both have a life filled with love, happiness, success, excitement, new adventures, and peace!
Sarah loves Brad, and Brad loves Sarah!
And I love Brad and Sarah!
Have a wonderful week! Enjoy the sunshine and rain, we need both!
