More Bridal Shower Pics

Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting her weekly Tablescape Thursday.  Please visit her blog and see all the other beautiful tablescapes.

I am posting more pictures of Jennifer's Bridal Shower that was held last Saturday.
The bride and groom chose Butler's Pantry and Butler's Pantry Gourmet china for their everyday dishes.  I decided I would purchase the soup tureen that goes with the collection and fill it with green apples.  Jennifer is having green apples in her vases filled with flowers at the reception.    I love this soup tureen myself and decided it would be perfect to use as the centerpiece and something they would have forever.

Some of the foods served.

This was the best cake!  I ordered it to look like the invitation that had pastel dots and it was delicious!

This is the view looking from one end of the dining room towards the bay window.

Homemade chicken salad croissants on my Butler's Pantry large platter.

Are these shoes not adorable?  I found them at Hobby Lobby last year.  They reminded me so much of Jennifer!

Another look at the cake . 
 The lavender dish to the right of  the cake was filled with chocolates that were in the shapes of engagement rings and wedding bells.

A view of the table before the food was on the table.

My cabbage plate filled with veggies.

Here is the "pair" of shoes again!  Love them! 

The shoes matched the pink hydrangeas that was used for the floral arrangements.  I absolutely love hydrangeas.

A centerpiece on the kitchen table.

Spritz cookies I colored purple with purple sprinkles.

Another view of the table. 

Jennifer and Jeremy received many beautiful things.  I hope you enjoyed a few more pictures of the bridal shower.

Thanks for visiting and God Bless!

It looks like you all had a wonderful shower for Jennifer. Her everyday china pattern is so pretty. I really like white dishes. And that soup tureen is really pretty.
