On Sunday, October 24th, I threw a bridal shower for my sister, Ellen, at my home. Ellen’s wedding “theme” was Fall, and using the colors of the season. I used orange as my main color, since it’s a very fall-like color and also one of Ellen’s favorites.
I found the cutest cocktail napkins at Target.
I filled a vase with wine corks and wrapped it with twine…
…and set up a little bar station
For the shower game, I chose “Missing Ingredient”. I took 10 recipes and omitted 1 item. I tried to pick the most obvious ingredient, but a lot of people found it quite difficult! (example: Recipe for Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. Missing ingredient: roasted red pepper)
The winner of the game received a cookie baking mat.
As a side note, I was absolutely shocked that Target didn’t carry any orange wrapping paper!
So between the game, prize, and favor, I basically had a baking themed shower.
I didn’t get pictures of all of the food, but here’s what we had:
- swedish meatballs
- veggies & dip
- chex mix
- ham biscuits
- pumpkin spice cupcakes (ordered from a local bakery)
I made a cupcake stand, but never got any pictures of it! What a shame…
Have you ever thrown a shower?
