Favor Boxes

I know we "discussed" having a dessert bar in lieu of a cake so we thought what better way to save some cash on favors than to get "to-go" boxes and let Britt's guests take some tasty treats home with them.


I received the templates for our games last week. I hope you all like them!

a few changes

Hello ladies
I wanted to give you guys an update on where we are at on the shower. First of all we decided to push the shower back to 2:30 on the 26th. Hopefully this will give us some extra time to get there and get things prepared.

We have also decided to go with several small finger foods & dessert bar instead of bbq & a traditional cake.
With these changes comes a little more work but sound much better for a bridal shower not to mention tastier :-) I am planning to get there about 10AM to start preparing the food and desserts. If you could be there about that time to help it would be greatly appreciated. I understand a few of you will be coming in from outta town and have kiddos and understand if you cant be there that early. If you could just let me know what you plan on doing.

Here is our sample menu... this isn't final and are up for suggestions

Fruit kabob- watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, & pineapple

Chicken salad sandwiches- we will get the chicken salad from Chelsea's and do the sandwiches ourselves

Pasta salad- Britt's mom has offered to make this for us

broccoli & ranch dressing & sunflower seeds

deviled eggs- Britt's aunt will be making these

guacamole salad- Britt's Aunt

boudin dip

Dessert bar

Cupcakes made by our beautiful bride :-)

Gourmet marshmallows- britt's grandmother will be making these

divinity- britt's grandmother


mini pies

mini pretzels with m & m's and Hershey's kisses

lemon squares


chocolate peanut butter bars

Don't sweat about having to drag this stuff all over town with you, with the money we collect we will go and get everything we will need & just make it at the morning of the shower.

Again if you have something in mind for us to have at the shower let me know!

as far as drinks go we will be having your normal tea & soft drinks. we will also be having champagne punch & strawberry lemonade.

Let me know what you guys think.
