Bridal Shower

This past weekend my mom, my sisters and I hosted a bridal shower for our cousin.  It was a beach themed shower and we had a great time!   

My mom sewed unique kitchen items onto an apron for my cousin and we turned it into a game.  She walked around and everyone got a minute to look at the apron and write down as many things as they could remember.  We also had a crossword puzzle filled with clues about my cousin and her fiance.  Lastly, every guest filled out some words of wisdom about marriage for my cousin.

We served homemade mushroom puff pastries, zucchini madeleines, and salmon cakes as appetizers. 

For lunch we made fruit skewers, homemade macaroni and cheese, spinach, candied pecan and strawberry salad, and cilantro shrimp skewers.

Dessert included homemade brownies, lemon macaroon tartlets, and mini lemon cheesecakes.
