From Ashley Lindzon Events:
In lieu of a traditional bridal shower, the hosts wanted to throw Erin a fun and unique shower for her to share with her bridesmaids. With a knack for vintage finds and curiosity in the kitchen, this cooking inspired shower was created. Using lots of lace, vintage tins, pots and pans, we filled the space with warmth, vintage charm and beautiful blooms that created the perfect setting. To welcome guests, french toast shooters and sparkling wine were passed. A full brunch buffet was served filled with mini yogurt parfaits, mini muffins, frittatas, an arugula salad, quinoa salad, and fresh fruit. Once guests had a chance to have a bite, they were able to fill out the recipe cards with a recipe of their own (as indicated on the invitations) as well as sign the guestbook, which was a cooking apron for the bride to keep. The bride was also presented with a beautiful rolling pin, oven mitts, and a ‘Bride’ chef’s hat to get her fully suited before getting her in the kitchen.
Elyse Leanna Catering was there to demonstrate to the ladies how to make a crepe. Each guest had the opportunity to create their own and fill the crepe at the crepe toppings bar. The bar was filled with caramelized apples, strawberries, bananas, whipped cream, caramel sauce, and nutella. Crepes were served on vintage china and it is safe to say, the guests thoroughly enjoyed them. For dessert (for those that still had room), mini cupcakes with cooking and kitchen inspired toppers were served.
Each guest was given a towel that had a min whisk and bakers twine as a thank you. Always such a lovely gesture to share something sweet with the guests.
