Bridal Shower Time

My oldest baby is getting married! The bridesmaids and I hosted a bridal shower for her this weekend, so I thought I'd share what we served and how we decorated.

Since the bride and groom are big fans of the movies, we put together a movie theme. I was able to find a great book called Kisses that was full of photos and quotes from black and white movies. We used those for decorations and place mats. I was thrilled that the first thing guests did was walk around the table trying to identify all of the actors and movies! ;o)

I set up an Amazon wish list on my account with a large selection of movies that they love but do not own. (Cary Grant, anyone?) 

Here are some pictures, and the menu is down below.

The wall behind the gift table was covered with photos from movies and a "Happily Ever After" plaque.

Place settings included a unique black and white movie photo and a mini packet of microwave popcorn.
The popcorn buckets were full of movie candy and dvd movies that we used as prizes for games.

The bridal party at the food table. Bride Moriah on the right, Maid of Honor Noelle on the left and Bridesmaid Julie in the middle. The other Julie wasn't able to attend, due to being in another state. ;o)

We tried to keep the menu simple but yummy.

Meatballs with barbeque sauce
Maple Dip with Honey Wheat Pretzels
Pumpkin Dip with Ginger Snaps
Black Raspberry Dip with Chocolate Pretzels
Veggie Pizza Appetizers (Recipe to come)
Insanely Moist and Decadent Chocolate Cupcakes (Recipe to come)
Pina Colada Punch (Recipe to come)
Iced Water Bottles

We did a quiz that consisted of movie quotes, requiring players to name the movie, and for bonus points, the movie couple. 

We also did the toilet paper bridal gown game. That was great fun. ;o)
