Sarah’s Shower April 5, 2008

Filed under: Family and Friends,Fun — Michelle @ 11:03 pm

Today Lisa and I threw our friend Sarah a bridal shower/tea.  It was lots of fun.  And very exhausting.  But fun.  Maybe later I will update this post with a link to Lisa’s blog (if she decides to post), since most of the pictures from the shower are on her camera.  Or maybe I will just get the pictures from her and update on my own…either way, here’s a small glimpse of our enjoyable afternoon.

UPDATE: Here’s the link to Lisa’s post about the shower!


Here is what the tables looked like.  Lisa (as always) did a beautiful job on the flowers, and I was really pleased with how the favor boxes turned out!  


The menu:

Chicken Salad with Curry

Open-Face Cucumber Sandwiches

Cream-Filled Strawberries

Raspberry Scones

Lemon Mascarpone Ebleskiver (I think I spelled that wrong…Filled Pancakes in English)


Tea (Strawberries & Cream and Jasmine Flowering)


Virgin Mojito with fresh mint and lime (we couldn’t resist since it fit our green theme…)


Here are a few of the selections


The beautiful bride-to-be


Sarah and her mom, who was able to be here from Arizona for the shower


I didn’t get pics of the other guests or our fun Make-Your-Own Veil Contest, but we had a great time celebrating Sarah!  I couldn’t (actually wouldn’t) do it without you, Lis!!  Now I’m going to bed.
