A bridal shower tea

August 23, 2010 § Leave a comment

This past weekend we threw a shower for my sister-in-law Angela.  She will be getting married in November and we wanted to give her a day of sweet and delicious memories.  We ended up having it at her house which made it convenient for her and gave us plenty of room to set up tables, gifts and time with her guests.

Her aunts and cousin did most of the organizing and I was the “chef” for the day.  I really don’t like spending money on tiny sandwiches that can be easily put together in no time at all.  So here is a look at what we made for the shower.

The favors were little mason jars filled with lemon drops and covered in fabric. I printed the tags and then punched them with my circle punch.  I backed them with a piece of yellow scrapbook paper that I punched with a flower punch.  They came out really adorable and were dispalyed like this.

The first part of the shower was everyone gathering in the kitchen for a drink and some cheese and crackers.

The lunch menu included:

  • egg salad sandwiches on wheat bread
  • chicken and apricot salad on rolls
  • caprese salad canapes
  • green salad
  • fruit salad
  • assorted pastries from a local bakery
  • tea, lemonade and wine

We played a simple game of “Price is Right” and then she was showered with beautiful and sentimental gifts.  Her mother gave her a hope chest filled with her china and crystal.  Tears were flowing at this point.

Angela was so happy and thankful for everything.  And it really turned out amazing.  I love celebrating an occasion like this and am looking forward to the wedding.
