Decorations for this were simple. Black and white table runners, white floral centerpieces, a few poms and also a little touch of a select few brighter colors.
But everyone knows a bridal shower is all about the gifts ... well, and the desserts! Yummy!
I made the engagement ring cake =)
It was a two-layer white cake with whipped frosting, sprinkled with blue sugar and candies. So simple and cute.
A handmade sign welcomed all of Gina's guests to the party.
The color theme continued on these customized ribbon topiary centerpieces.
I just adore these poms hanging over the dessert and punch table. And so easy to assemble!
Also loved the flower centerpieces Mikaelah put together. The flowers match what will be in the bride's bouquet on her big day.
A few "splashes" of color here and there =)
Ok, now back to those desserts ...
Since the cake was a white cake, I wanted to have a little bit of chocolate offered in there somewhere. So that's where the cupcakes came in. One dozen was chocolate with the same whipped frosting as the cake, and the other dozen was made similar to Mikaelah's "Milky Way Cake" she made recently for the American Cancer Society's cake contest.
That tasty recipe can be found in this previous blog entry.
And, oh yes, more chocolate. Had to have the bowl of matching colored M&M's!
I really hope Gina had a great bridal shower (and got some great gifts, too!)
