**UPDATE: Thanks to tidymom, I have found the link to the pumpkin dip! Yum Yum Yum. Here it is, (it was on Blissfully Domestic, love them!) and enjoy! Also, if you can get your hands on some Honey Crisp apples, they are spectacular with this! My grocery store only has them in the beginning of the season, so they should be out now.
A few weeks ago, I hosted a bridal shower for a friend of mine (the same friend who I framed the wedding invitation for, actually). I just love girlie girl parties! Here are a few photos from the day...
Isn't the shower invitation cute? I didn't pick it out, so I can say that. I thought it was a fun little touch to hang it outside my front door to welcome people.
We had all the usual girlie food. It was a brunch, so there was some yummy fruit, coffee cake and an egg casserole with sausage and cheddar that was to die for! I also used a pumpkin dip recipe (perfect with crunchy apples!) that I found out there in blogland but can't for the life of me remember who posted it. If it was you, please tell me so I can personally thank you! It was the hit of the shower!
We had sparkling water for us preggos, and refreshing mimosas for the rest. Aren't these wine charms cute? So great for parties when you don't want to mix up your drink with someone else's. I've also used them on coffee mugs. My sister and I started a little business about a year ago to sell these. We do lots of handpainted little goodies and sell them on etsy and in a local shop in Denver. We named it Mildred Lane, after the street we grew up on!
My friend and co-host brought all the ingredients for lattes. Oh my. These were so good! Mine was so pretty I almost didn't want to drink it! (But I managed to force it down.)
Oh, and did I mention it was a lingerie shower? I thought these little undies looked cute hanging from the chandelier. Of course my husband, when he saw me hanging them, asked me why we don't have undies hanging from the light fixtures more often. But I really doubt that my maternity underwear would look nearly as good over the kitchen table.
What do you think? :)
