Holiday Bridal Shower Menu

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:

Brown Sugar Brie

Roast Garlic and Artichoke Dip

Cranberry Salsa

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!

    I love the glitter trees! You can get candlesticks like that at the dollartree, too. For anyone that has one close to them.

    Leigh Anne, I love your decorating and I love the mason jars with kosher salt and candles. Where did you pick up those mason jars? I noticed they had handles on them. Is that right? They are so cute and a great idea.

      I am pretty sure they came from Goodwill. You can also find them on ebay if you are in a hurry and don’t have to time to wait for them to show up at Goodwill.
