Wedding Shower Eats

Remember last week when I was baking for a wedding shower??  Well, good….it went off without a hitch last Saturday and I think that the bride felt very showered with love by her friends and family!  We had a great time planning it for sure.  It was everything a wedding shower should be – fun, girly, whimsical and pretty.  Our theme was Morning Mimosas and we really ran with it…using pink, orange and yellow as our colors.  The decor was airy and fun – think tissue paper pompoms, paper flowers, mason jars, etc.  I’ll just have to let you see for yourself!
