Jenny's Wedding Shower :: Pink & Black Roses & More...

My sister-in-law Jessica and I planned a shower for our future sister-in-law Jenny last summer (don't ask why I'm just now posting this so many months later....).  We wanted our daughters (the flower girls) to be a part of the shower, so we had a girls night and made decorations for the party.  The wedding colors were pink & black, so we tried to come up with decorations to match those colors.  We didn't really have a theme for the party, we just wanted it to be lovely and charming and laid back. 

The girls (and Jessica) made these adorable paper roses in pink and black, which are the wedding colors.  
We used the roses to decorate the buffet table and other tables around the house.  They were so cute, and everyone was asking about them.  We found the pattern at Santa Barbara Wedding Blog ::


We had quite a spread for the shower!  (Notice all the sweet paper roses all over the table) ::

I also made this banner by free-handing the letters J + M (Jenny & Matthew)...and just look at those cute little flower girls!

Here's a few of the delicious items we served that day :: 
On the right are some outstanding "Pudding Shots" made by Jess, then we had cookies made by Vivian Sweets, and a very easy & very tasty appetizer I made with Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Basil.

And here's a picture of Matthew & Jenny and the girls on the big wedding day last September ::

I'm intrigued by these pudding shots, just the right amount of sweet!

Thanks for attending my session and taking notes, but I'm happy you got something out of my wrap-up post, too!

Hopefully I'll see you at an event or CincyBloggers meetup ;)

Andi,
Pudding Shots are fabulous! Try them sometime for a party! I learned about them from a friend who makes them to take with her when she tailgates before Bengals games.
