Today I hosted a bridal shower for my niece Katie Elkins. I had been planning it in my head for months and finally today it all came together. Yesterday my Mom aka Sweet Sue came down and we made everything. Here is the menu: Chicken Salad with dried cherries and almonds. Lettuce noodle salad. Deviled eggs. Jello salad. Strawberries. Sugar Cookies and a Triple Chocolate Trifle Pie. Lemonaide and Iced Tea. My friend Beth Trojanowski use to own a resturant and she lent me a bunch of cake stands and a springform pan (thank you Beth!). We had 19 people in total and what a wonderful couple of hours. Katie is so loved. Our good friend Robbie even came from Ky to be a part the festivities. and YES we played games I am an old fashioned girl. Games have to be played. She got great gifts and will be a wonderful homemaker. It will be so nice to have her closer. Many thanks to all of her/our friends.
