Honeymoon Bridal Shower


\
This weekend I threw a wee little bridal shower for my friend Megan. It was less of a traditional bridal shower, and more of a 'honeymoon' shower :)  She already had plenty of things ready for their home/kitchen from previous showers, but really wanted more of what my husband calls "recreational pajamas."
Of course I'm not going to include all the pictures (mostly because they all came out completely fuzzy like these ones).... but I can tell you we had a grand 'ol time as giggly girlies. I think it turned out alright for a pretty tight budget!
I served my favorite fruit salad (Strawberry, Blueberry, and Grape Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing), some lovely sandwiches (Zupas Chicken Pesto Sandwiches) and had a friend bring Megan's Mom's famous salsa (I've had the recipe since high school - maybe someday I'll ask for permission to post it on here - it's a goodie).

For dessert, I had little light lemon cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting (killer recipe, Natalie. We'll be using it from now on). And for party favors, I bagged up some simple sugar cookies with white glaze/frosting as a base and piped on some 'tops and bottoms' with custom sprinkles/pearls patterns.
 Originally I wanted to use these same spiral straws, but yellow or grey stripes... I still had a pack of blue ones from the manchild's Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party, so I just used the rest of them (why buy a whole pack of straws just to get a matching color?) I cut out little flags to slip on the straws, though.  

From the ceiling I hung yellow, white and grey tissue paper pom poms. And we strung up her new 'night wear' on a clothes line in the living room. We played some fun/flirty games and had quite the lovely afternoon.
