Summer and I just finished planning another event on the central coast. The event was a shower for a bride to be. We set up in Summer’s back yard. The theme was rustic, outdoors. It was so much fun to do. Since I am writing the post I think I will start with the food. (I have a little problem)…
The event was after dinner, so we served hors d’oeuvres. Prosciutto wrapped caprice sandwiches, beets with goat cheese, pine nuts and balsamic served on arugula, brie and fig tartlets, shrimp cocktail and marinated asparagus and bell pepper (not pictured). For dessert we served homemade brownies and lemon bars. Drinks were served in mason jars – lemon-lime aid and triple citrus mojitos.
The food table was in front of a fabric draped frame. A large branch that Summer found in a fire pit served as a base to wire small white flowers to and hang candles in mason jars. The drinks were in mason jars in buckets of ice to the left of the table.
The dessert table had tea, coffee and hot chocolate as well as a basket with blankets for people who were cold. The same white flowers decorated the dessert stands.
An old mirror invites the guests to use a blanket.
The tables were set with white linens and burlap. Homemade mixed berry jam were the favors. The white flowers served as a centerpiece. Lights were strung and we were ready for the event!!
Lots of fun kitchen gifts to start of the new couple’s home!
Thanks to all that helped! It was a great night.
