I've been too busy and distracted to post pictures to my blog. It's time to catch up. Victoria's bridal shower was July 12. We had a perfect (breezy) sunny day. It was difficult to keep my grandmother's silver from blowing off the tables. The flowers were arranged in vegetable cans scrapped with paper and embelishments. We served finger sandwiches, chocolate cupcakes with lavender sugar roses, quiche, teapot cookies and punch. The bride was pleased and received lots of lovely gifts. The punch was the hit of the party:
Bridal Shower Punch
2 qt. sherbet 1 - 12 oz can lemonate concentrate thawed
1 1/2 c cold water 2 ltr. bottle carbonated lemon/lime soda
fresh fruit cut up (strawberries)
Spoon sherbet into punch bowl. Add all ingredients except soda and fruit, Stir to mix, then add soda slowly and stir. Float fruit just before serving.
