I used my Cricut to cut the circle shapes
Can't for the life of me remember what the sign said but It's something I found by googling "cookie buffet signs".
Once again I forgot to take pictures until the whole shebang was pretty much done. I had 5 kinds of cookies for people to pick from, butter cookies, white chip chocolate, red velvet hearts, chocolate chip, and peanut butter.
One of my favorite decorations was the recipe card tree. I sent the recipe cards with the invitations with directions to fill it out and bring it to the shower. I took clothespins I had in my craft stash and used decorative pink striped tape I found at the dollar tree to cover one side of them. The sticks were found in my mom's yard and placed in a half gallon mason jar. I thought this was so cute and she got some really great recipes I plan on stealing haha.
This banner was not made by me but my sister's future mother-in-law had it from another shower she had done and asked if I wanted to use it. It was burlap and so cute I had to get a picture.
I also had tissue paper poms in dark/light pink and yellow. I made circle garland that didn't end up getting hung up because of time restraints and guests arriving early.
For food I chose chicken salad and ham salad sandwiches, pasta salad, deviled eggs, watermelon, strawberries, and cantaloupe. For drinks we had bottled water, homemade strawberry lemonade, and sweet tea.
My family is not big on games, in fact with every shower I've done (and there have been a few now) they complain at the mere mention of a game. That being said, I had to have something else for everyone to do other than eat and watch Kayli open gifts. So I chose the candy game where you match bridal phrases with a candy. The prize was boxed Sugar Daddy's, Sweetarts, Nerds, Twix mini candy bars, and a PayDay candy bar stacked and tied with pink ribbon.
Everything turned out so great and even though I didn't get to decorate fully like I usually do everyone enjoyed themselves and Kayli got lots of goodies to start her married life.
