Bridal Shower Menu Ideas

Bridal Shower Ideas

We will continue your do-it-yourself backyard bridal shower that we started yesterday with the lunch menu and drink bar.

The Vine’s Leaf in San Clemente was the mastermind behind this lovely number and Lane Dittoe Photography took all the photos. Stay tuned, because as I said before there is so much more. Basically we will provide you with everything, I mean everything to put this event together.

Do you love how Aly set up the drink table, that is actually an window that she purchased at a flea market and we propped up on a bird bath. It was a bit wobbly, so we recommend something a bit sturdier.

kiwi lime infused seltzer water

How to make Kiwi and Lime infused water with a splash of mint!

They have a very light, refreshing flavor that’s definitely not just water and making them with seltzers reduces down the calories. Especially for those us trying to watch what we eat. Pick up a glass pitcher! We love this one over at William Sonoma. They have the option to get it monogrammed. They can be engraved with a single- or triple-initial monogram. A perfect gift for the bride. Do not forget they have a spectacular registry.

Ingredients6 cups chilled still water or seltzer water
- 12 slices unpeeled cucumbers (thin slices)
- 4 slices limes (thin slices)
- 4 sprigs fresh mint, 2 inches long, slightly crushed
- 2 Kiwis (thin slices)
