I love wedding showers! Actually, I love pretty much everything that has to do with weddings! :mrgreen: It’s funny because before getting engaged, I was not at all into weddings. I know some women have their dream wedding planned out in their heads from about the time they are 16-years-old, but that wasn’t me. Mal and I are actually the first of friends to get engaged (then married), so I didn’t really have any expectations for the Big Day. Ok, so I totally just went on a tangent– sorry about that! 😉

Her Favorite Color

The wedding shower that I attended on Sunday afternoon can best be described as “spring chic.” Spring green dominated the shower’s decor and food– from the flowers to the plates and napkins to the frosting on the cupcakes. Ashley’s bridesmaids did a wonderful job!

How cute are these cupcakes? I feel like they should be on the cover of Real Simple magazine! If you can believe it, they tasted even better than they look!

Food

The spread of food at Ashley’s shower was impressive— with healthy and colorful selections including raw veggies, fruit salad, pasta salad, mini sandwiches and wraps, and a whole slew of delectable desserts.

Before diving into the food, I sipped on a small glass of Ménage à Trois white wine, which is a blend of Chardonnay, Muscat and Chenin Blanc.

My green plate: turkey and cheese in a green wrap, fruit salad, chocolate-covered strawberry, and a green frosted cupcake.

Inside the chocolate-covered strawberry was a delightful surprise: cheesecake filling! Holy yum!!! :mrgreen:

Gifts and Games

While the bride-to-be opened gifts, her guests played a round of Bridal Bingo.

Each of the words in the bingo squares were associated with Ashley or her fiance– including their favorite things, places they went, nicknames for each other, their pets’ names, etc. We used Hershey’s kisses for the bingo markers.

While playing Bridal Bingo, I helped myself to another half glass of wine and a sugar cookie with green sprinkles on top.

About 10 minutes later, I grabbed another cookie. They were GOOD!

What a lovely shower! I think Ashley really enjoyed herself! Now I really can’t wait for her bachelorette and actual wedding! :mrgreen:

  1. WOW! Everything looks fabulous. I love the green theme and that it was outdoors. Those adorable cupcakes make me want to whip up a batch! Hope you have a nice Tuesday Tina!

  2. Wow, cheesecake-filled strawberries sound like two of my favorite things miraculously put together into one! I think YOU should figure out how make them and then tell ME (because I won’t figure it out myself lol).

  3. Seriously, I’d like to just copy that exactly for my wedding shower!! I think your friend and I must be long lost family!! LOVE the green…and that filled strawberry is too cute.

  4. Awww I LOVE showers and anything wedding related too!! Tis the season!

    Also I am still in shock that Mal ate TWO Super Burritos!!! We were at Anna’s on Sunday and were amazed at the kid who ate 2 sitting near us!

  5. I never heard of a cheesecake filled choc covered strawberry! WOW. That would probably be my favorite thing ever if I only knew where to find that. The cupcakes and cookies and food all looks great!

  6. Those greens in the flowers were exactly the color of my wedding flowers!

    I am just like you – not at all into weddings, and was the first of my group of friends to tie the knot – no expectations whatsoever. Which is probably why I didn’t freak out when someone spilled red wine all down the back of my dress at the reception and when I fainted during the ceremony. Oh well! Stuff happens!

  7. i love love love this wedding shower! so simple, relaxed, and elegant. love the flower arrangements.

  8. What a lovely event! I’m glad you enjoyed yourself with the cupcake and choco-covered strawberry. And Menage a Trois wine is delicious!

  9. Ahh I loved themed things! This bridal shower looks SO cute and bridal bingo is a great idea! I’m adding it to my wedding planning folder, hopefully I’ll have to use it soon!

  10. I love wedding stuff more now than when I got married as well. (It is my 2 year wedding anniversary today!!) 🙂 I think because now we know what all goes into it.

    How was the Menage Trois White? I’ve had the red blend, and it’s one of my favorites – but never the white.

  11. That is the best idea for chocolate covered strawberries! No one would expect that, that’s for sure. I guess it would be a bit of a bummer if you couldn’t have cheese/dairy, but other than that, sounds awesome 😀
