Kitchen Shower






On Saturday I threw my soon to be sister-in-law a bridal shower. I went with a kitchen theme, using anything red I had in my own kitchen.

I used red, blue/aqua, orange and green for the colors.

For decorations I used small kitchen items to make a kitchen garland. I used banners that I already had around the house. The food was displayed in things from my own kitchen.....mixer, blender even my toaster oven. The cracker box was something I received after my grandparents on my dad's side passed away. It was something they had in their kitchen for as long as I can remember.

We played a couple games. I had all the guest bring a recipe for Katie. I took the recipes and read off the ingredients until someone guessed what the recipe was. The one with the most correct guesses won.

The other game required the bridal to wear many different kitchen items and walk around the room for a couple minutes. When she left the room they guest had to write down as many items as they could remember. The one with the most won.

Food: Cherry cheddar crackers, Chocolate dipped strawberries, feta cherry tomatoes, sausage cups, bruchetta and cake.

Drinks: White wine orange sangria, virgin sangria and water

Party favors: Large pumpkin chocolate chip muffin with recipe

I think everyone had a great time! The wedding is in 2 months....the countdown is on!
