My bridal shower: food

Continuing on with the bridal shower post - the yummy food! The girls did such an amazing job with the food it was a Giada inspired meal (of course - I love her)!

They totally outdid themselves and the spread was beautiful and so tasty! It was a beautiful, sunny spring day in Seattle (close to 70 degrees!) and the menu was perfect for it! All homemade and fresh - these girls do nothing less!


Seriously, don't you all think these girls could do their own catering/party planning business?! They were cool, calm collected and never even broke a sweat!


Party planning masters: Brynn (left) and Meghan (right) prepping in the kitchen



Nick dropped me off at the shower and his contribution was opening the champagne bottles for the Bellini's


Beverage station complete with spa water, Bellini's, various juices and iced tea




I love these big glass dispensers they used for the spa water (rosemary, cucumbers and lemon slices) and iced tea


Caprese sandwiches


Prosciutto sandwiches


Three leaf salad


Fruit salad


Tomato basil pasta salad (I will post the recipe when I get it - it is so yummy!)

The full spread - so pretty and so yummy





How cute is this cake?! I love the pink!! It was so delish too



Homemade biscotti as favors for the guests

More to come soon!
