For Trish... Caitlin's Family Bridal Shower Food Picts
We made tuna finger sandwiches, veggie & fresh fruit trays, chips & salsa. The silver scrolling decorations were from Dollar Tree and added a nice touch, I thought. I found some blue and silver snowflake designed ornaments on clearance for 75% off at CVS and just added them to some simple glass bowls for decorations on the table. A bag of silver foiled Hershey's Kisses scattered over the table completed the decorations of the food tables.
We also served green olives, Boursin cheese stuffed tomatoes, and ham, turkey & pepperoni slices, cheddar & colby cheese cubed, and I made a "garlic, chive, and 3 cheese" ball and surrounded it with 3 kinds of crackers that I already had on hand. The cake was vanilla flavored on the top tier and chocolate on the bottom one, Pillsbury cookies, a plate of Caitlin's favorite Oreo double stuffed cookies, and Nana Dixie's FAMOUS cream cheese/chocolate brownies were a delightful addition to the dessert table. We made punch by using one and one half bottles of fruit punch flavored soda and one bottle of ginger ale in the punch bowl.
I had two extra glass bowls from the table decorations we made, so I filled them with Lindt Chocolates in Dark Blue, Light Blue and White wrappings. Caitlin's wedding colors are Marine Blue, Silver, & White. For guest favors, we purchased a couple packages of decorated favor boxes from the Dollar Tree and filled them with Hershey's Kisses colored with Red, Pink, & Silver wrappers. And, I made wallets of Justin and Caitlin's engagement photo, glue-sticked magnets on the back, and we gave them to each guest. We played 3 games. The first was like "The Newlywed Game" where we asked Justin a series of questions ahead of time and then asked Caitlin the same questions. That was a lot of fun and funny to hear all the different answers the group had. And, I have plenty of food left for snacking on the rest of this week, for sure!
Thanks for asking Trish!
Talk with you soon!
