If you follow my blog (and if you don't, you should, hehe!), you would have seen the table after I set it, but before the food was placed on it. To catch up, you can see the previous post here.
You may have noticed I changed the centerpiece from before. I thought it would be nice to have fresh flowers.
Be sure to check out a future post and I'll show you how I put these burlap filled daisy arrangements together.
Remember the tiered cake plates? Here they are with a variety of cupcakes including One Perfect Bite's Pumpkin Cupcakes.
And here's the chocolate covered pretzels I told you about. Got the idea from Cozy Kitchen by the Sea and Our Family Attic.
Do you remember the pumpkin dip recipe I gave you? Here it is, served with green and red apples and gingersnaps.
Mixed nuts with candy corn mixed in.
I served an Autumn Spiced Punch from the kitchen bar. I'd love to share this recipe and how I made the ice ring with you in a later post.
And here's a view of the whole table before we gobbled it up. :) We arranged the gifts in another room on top of our piano. The bride-to-be's grandmother was so gracious to send fresh flowers for the shower and they were perfect on the gift table.
Yes, I know this next photo is not a table setting, but I just had to show you this photo below anyway. A few of our guests put this gift together for the bride and groom. Isn't this a great idea?!
I really feel like this shower was a success. What makes for a success anyway, if not, making people happy, bringing old friends together, and making memorable moments for all.
I have some great friends who helped with this shower. We've all been friends for years. I'm kinda reminded of the movie Steel Magnolias when I think of these friends. Do you know what I mean? :)
Which reminds me of the quote from the movie, It's a Wonderful Life -
"Remember, no man is a failure who has friends."
