This last week my daughter Cali and I hosted a bridal shower for one of her best friends. Cali will be a bridesmaid in the wedding next week.
I used my new glitter trees I made as the center piece for the food table. I now have glitter all over my house and everywhere I go I seem to have people telling me I have glitter on me somewhere!
The glitter trees are quick and easy to put together. I purchased cone shaped styrofoam at the craft store, sprayed them with spray adhesive and then covered in glitter. Using my E6000 glue I attached them to some clear candleholders I found at Goodwill.
I had some left over Christmas ornaments which I put into some glass containers. Quick and easy table decor.
The color scheme I used was teal blue, green and red so my blue mason jars filled with Kosher salt and candles worked perfect.
For the backdrop I covered a foam core board with some fabric and then used my Cricut to cut out the names of the bride and groom to make a quick and easy pendant banner. A few of their engagement photos were the perfect finishing touch.
The menu included both sweet and savory and since I was a little short on time I went with a nice combo of store bought, prepared foods and homemade.
From Trader Joes I bought:
Corn Salsa and Chips
Sundried Tomato Hummus
Roasted Garlic Hummus
French Macarons (mainly because they are pretty on a plate)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches with Chocolate Ganache
Sundried Tomato and Pesto Torta
Assortment of crackers, flatbreads, chips and bread
From my kitchen:
Chocolate Peppermint Ganache Cupcakes – this recipe is on it’s way. These were amazing and got rave reviews. I took the leftovers to a luncheon the next day and they were even better after sitting overnight!!!
Here’s the cute bride to be and her best buddy!
