Here’s how the Fiesta Bridal Shower went down.
Everyone who attended knew one another and was in party mode upon arrival.
Nevertheless I stuck a post-it note on the back of each guest. With only “yes” and “no” questions the object of the ice-breaker was to figure out whose name was on your back and find your famous partner.
In the food department, we used the dining room table for hors d’oeuvres and snacks.
Most of these dishes were contributions by the guest hostesses.
My contribution to the food (in addition to a tres leches cake) was a build-your-own taco bar on the island in the kitchen.
I have found that even picky eaters (and we had some self-proclaimed ones attending) will be able to find something to eat if at least one of the dishes is deconstructed.
Drinks were served from the stainless steel counter that forms the border between the kitchen and dining room.
We ended the party by presenting the guest of honor with a money tree.
As a signal that the good time was coming to an end one of the hostesses put the party favors — ring pop in a bride box — on a tray and passed them out.
