Bridal Shower Luncheon

My matron of honor Katie hosted a beautiful bridal shower luncheon at her mother's home  on February 3.  I wanted to share a few photos from that special day!  Unlike the large shower my aunt hosted (family and our church community), Katie's shindig was intimate with close friends and immediate family.
She had this adorable wedding cake decoration in the middle of the dining table.
A gift showcasing the invitation that Katie created for the event.
Colander full of spring flowers.
Of course she had water and tea....and the most amazing orange margarita.  I had 2 or maybe 3 of them and rocked a slight head buzz!
Decoration in the front yard.
Bunny in a bow and mason jars with grosgrain ribbon.  She also had a couple of large Ball jars full of pink roses around the house.
My sweet hostess!
Chef Beau was our shower entertainment.  He is a friend of Katie's and she asked him to come prepare our lunch.  He set a beautiful display of appetizers - cheese, crostini, almonds, olives, and fruit.  
We watched him prepare our lunch - salmon and green beans with a roasted red pepper sauce garnished with pesto oil.  He also made some amazing crab stuffed mushrooms.  Katie didn't take a photo of the 2 tier cake she made for the shower but it had the most amazing cream cheese and she wrapped a pretty ribbon around the base with my monogram.
Mom and I enjoying the chef's presentation.
We met in the den for cake and gifts.
My mother in law made this plate for us featuring our new monogram.  We have it displayed in our kitchen now.
We stopped for some chatting in the middle of gift opening - I wanted to showcase the mimosa / margarita combination that I enjoyed so much.
More gifts.
Gift display and my throne of tulle.
My take home goodies!  Katie had each guest fill out a recipe card and gave me a box to keep all my new recipes in (monogrammed of course).  She also wrapped these heart shaped measuring spoons as the guests shower gift.  She gave me the little dress die-cuts from the shower for my scrapbook- I may also repurpose them for the bridal luncheon since she worked so hard on them.

Didn't she do an amazing job!
