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:
Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
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!
