It has been WAY too long since I have blogged. I've realized it's one of those things that the longer it goes the harder it is to get back into it. I'm not going to do anything too ambitious today but I've had a few requests for pictures from the fabulous shower I threw so I wanted to follow up on that. The cupcakes were AMAZING. I definitely recommend the recipe deck I mentioned in one of my earlier posts.
Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. Vintage glass snack plates (my favorite for showers) and vintage silverware in a green painted metal container I found antiquing.
Raspberry Lemonade with fresh raspberries and mint. Served in the snack set glasses.
This may have been my favorite cupcake of the day. Bananna Butterscotch Cupcakes with a Butterscotch frosting.
Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.
I printed out photographs of vintage weddings from www.shorpy.com and placed them all around the house. I had Hydrangeas throughout the house that I cut from my mom's yard.
I made 5 different kinds of cupcakes. These two were Spring Bouquet with a slight almond flavor to the pink frosting and Chocolate with Chocolate Buttercream frosting (it was amazing).
Ham and Gouda Croissant sandwiches. The little pink glass jar eventually had some dijon in it for the sammys.
Egg salad sandwiches.
It was a beautiful shower. I could never have pulled it off without help from my fabulous friend Sharon!
