Shower Success!

We had such a fun shower on Saturday night. It was a small gathering celebrating Margaret's upcoming marriage with a few personal items. :) We had a coffee shop theme and included a poetry reading as well as a poetry game. It all went so well and I think everyone had a good time! Here are a few pictures (okay, several :)):

The table of food (better food photos below).

The Bride - Margaret is going to love me for this one. :)

I found these signs on clearance for $2 apiece and thought they were perfect for the theme. I used one on the front door and these two on the wall. Margaret now has one for her kitchen.

The drink menu.

Behind the counter at the "coffee shop" - one of our friends is a barista so she helped us with making drinks!

Toffee Biscotti w/chocolate Drizzle

Lemon Biscotti

Mini Cream Puffs

Blueberry Scones w/Lemon Drizzle

Fruit & Cheese Platter

Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

Margaret opening gifts.

The Favors - Coffee Mugs w/Shower Gel & Mini Meringue Kisses

Sisters - Sadly, Steph couldn't make it and we missed her!
(Please don't mind how I look...I had been sick for a week and was super tired but it really was a great evening! :))

I forgot to ask where you got the square plates from.

Alaina said...

Hey Rona, They were actually my sister's plates - maybe from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
