My favorite thing about planning any event is focusing on the food. For Saturday's bridal shower, I wanted a few savory items, heavy on desserts, and of course, everything had to be cute. Thanks to all you fabulous bloggers, I had plenty of recipes and inspiration at my disposal.
I served a sour cream pound cake with fresh strawberries and blueberries. Olivia's fantastic caramel sea salt brownies, which earned rave reviews. Janis' adorable lemon poppy seed mini muffins. For my one purchased sweet, I splurged on salted caramel and passion fruit macarons because they are perfection. I had a cheese plate inspired by Joanna's masterpiece with a Savannah Bee honeycomb thrown in. My new favorite appetizer, Caprese on a stick. A chilled soup which included cucumber, pineapple and onion -- my gourmet-inclined dad coached me on it over the phone and we decided to call it "Maui gazpacho." And the cocktail was a Blissini, a blend of Prosecco, orange juice and pomegranante juice -- and an appropriate title for the day's overall vibe.
