My Sister’s Bridal Shower

I threw a bridal shower for my sister this weekend. I can’t believe her wedding is 2 weeks away already! The bridal shower went really well. I had a lot of work to get the house prepped (especially since we just moved in a week ago!) but I had some great helpers. Here’s a few shots from the shower:

It was a cocktail party and a “Stock The Bar” theme, so we had little wine and cocktail themed decorations here and there. I got some drink umbrellas with olives and martinis on them, some wine napkins, some wine and cheese pics, and even some wine-scented candles!

This is the beverage set-up:

For the favors, I made truffles with coconut, nuts, and cocoa powder. Then I boxed them up in these cute ring boxes that my mom found in Korea:


Truffles are fairly simple to make. You basically melt heavy whipping cream with butter and place it on top of broken chocolate pieces. Then you let it firm up in the fridge for a couple hours or overnight. It gets tricky when you have to roll the chocolate into balls, since the heat from your hands will melt the chocolate. Keeping a bowl with ice cubes and water near you can definitely help. Once you’ve rolled the chocolate into balls, then you just roll it in whatever topping you want!

Each guest got a truffle box and a travel size sanitizer from Bath and Body Works in their goodie bag:

I also ordered a small photo book online with photos of the happy couple. I bought some paint pens from Joann Fabrics and asked the guests to sign the book:

Here are some pictures of the set-up. I can’t take credit for the food, that was all my mom. She’s an amazing cook.

Here’s the tables full of yummy:

Here’s some crab and shrimp mini quiches:

Overall, a great success!
