Nina's Bridal Shower

Last weekend was a weekend of hosting parties! On Saturday the 26th, I hosted at my house a kitchen themed bridal shower for my future sister in-law. The theme was a fun idea that one of the other hostesses cam up with. We basically included a recipe card in with the invite. Guests were asked to include a recipe along with the gift that could be used in that recipe. It made for a cute twist on the gift giving and she walked away with a box of all new recipes to try with her new cookware! I played off the kitchen theme by putting together centerpieces that were kitchen canisters that said "flour", "sugar", "coffee", and "tea". I then gave out little thank you gifts that were measuring spoons that had the "recipe for a happy marriage" written on them. Along with the kitchen theme, I played off the pink and brown colors in the invitations for my decor and food. It was a very successful shower. We had about 18 guests and they all had a great time and enjoyed the Italian sparkling wine! Here are the pics and the details!
