Bridal Shower!

13 Sep

OMG.  The shower was so fun!  I probably went overboard with a few things, but I love the bride, so it was worth it.

Yep, that girl. We went to college together in Boston and I met her on my very first day when I was moving in the dorms.  She was my next door neighbor.

So I was in charge of favors, and I decided that I wanted to do a dessert table and let people take treats home as their favor.  I also had to be sure that whatever I picked could be transported on an airplane since I live in Austin and the party was in Minneapolis.  And, I knew that I didn’t want to bring that stuff back with me, so I hoped that whatever dishes I bought could be used by the bride at her wedding, or just at her house after the wedding.

I started with the boxes and a sign for the treats:

I stamped all the boxes in Austin and put them together once I got to MSP.

Then, I got the desserts.  All of these traveled with me on the plane, except the strawberries:

Cake Pops

Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows

Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Rock Candy

And some swedish fish,  licorice, and personalized Jones soda.

And signs for all the treats

A Love is Sweet Sign

And the whole table

I had so much fun.  I only wish I’d taken better pictures!

    I know ladies, isn’t she incredible!? I am just so honored that it was for me. 🙂 We are still enjoying the cake pops especially. I can’t wait to reuse many of the decorations for the candy buffet at my wedding!

    Thank you again Kelsey, you’re amazing!
