Waffle Bar Bridal Shower with Chinet® Cut Crystal® + a Giveaway​

Waffle Bar Bridal Shower

This post was sponsored by Chinet® Cut Crystal® but all opinions are my own. One of my favorite parties to throw is a bridal shower. It is just exciting to be a part of such a fun new beginning. A young couple in love. I love to see the bride’s face as she talks about her fiancé and see and feel her excitement! I recently gave a bridal shower for the daughter of a friend. This was her third daughter to get married. I hosted showers for her other daughters [Continue Reading…]

Tea Party Bridal Shower

Last week I hosted a tea party bridal shower for Charlotte.  Charlotte is a friend of my daughter Tessa’s, I was her Young Women’s adviser in church and she was also on the same study abroad program  in London that Tessa was.  Since she had just returned from London I decided a tea party bridal shower would be very fitting. I had recently made this cute polka dot tablecloth following the directions over at Oh Happy Day and I had been looking for an excuse to use it.  I decided [Continue Reading…]

I told you it was going to be Party Central here on the blog this week.  But today we are switching gears.  We are moving from graduation party ideas to a bridal shower. No, that is not the bride but one of our cute little party guests! The bride is one of my daughter’s high school friends.  It seems just like yesterday she was in high school and I was teaching her in Young Women’s at church.  It probably seems like that because  it really  was – just a few [Continue Reading…]

Crepe Bar}Crepe Filling – White Chocolate Mousse and Cream Cheese Mousse


Everyone knows that the best part of a crepe is what is inside. Crepes can be savory or sweet.  For the bridal shower we went for the sweet version.  My favorite! Usually when we make crepes we go for the fast and easy version.  A can of whip cream (the kind you spray out of the can, so fun!), berries of our choice (strawberries, raspberries).  We just pile it on and enjoy.  Another favorite is also a layer of nutella topped with sliced bananas.  I prefer nutella with strawberries or [Continue Reading…]

I hope you all enjoyed a lovely holiday weekend.  We flew our flag and gave thanks to all the men and women who have served and who are serving our country.  Last week we were able to spend a little  time with our “adopted son” James who just returned from his tour in Afghanistan and are so grateful for his safe return and for his service.  We also drove to Seattle on Monday to see a Mariner’s Game – Jim and his girls.  Safeco Field has great food! One of [Continue Reading…]

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 [Continue Reading…]
