PARTY DETAILS as told by Jessica…

“The most important part of every party or shower is the food. Well, aside from the party decor and invitations, of course! This bridal shower was no exception. We wanted to give our guests an assortment of different foods in small portions so they could try everything and not feel guilty!

We tried to incorporate traditional breakfast foods, including stacks of mini buttermilk pancakes, bacon, mini quiches, yogurt parfaits, an assortment of mini muffins, scones, amorreto and cream cheese filled strawberries, macaroons, donut holes, and beautiful chocolate fruit cups. We also had an equal amount of drinks which included tea, coffee, water with frozen raspberries, orange juice, raspberry lemonade, and pink sunrise champagne cocktail. We definitely didn’t run out of food or drinks!

We made the mini pancakes using a few helpful tools from Williams-Sonoma. First, we poured our buttermilk pancake batter into the Pancake Pen and then poured the batter into the round pancake mold (also purchased at William-Sonoma). These handy tools helped keeps the pancakes a consistent size and really made a difference.

The pancakes were placed in stacks three high on my DIY mini stands. If you are interested in making them yourself, you can follow the tutorial. The only difference here was that we added an extra disc to the tops of each stand and attached beautiful ribbon around the outer edge with hot glue. Once the pancakes were added, we used a tooth pick to keep them together. A small ring and raspberry were also added to make the pancake stack look prettier!

We included a variety of syrups beautifully displayed in glass cruets. We went with a traditional maple syrup, an amoretto maple syrup, and a strawberry vinegar syrup. Additional pancake toppings, which included sliced bananas, powdered sugar, and pecans, were also available so that our guests could customize their pancakes.

For our yogurt parfaits, we used tall shot glasses and layered vanilla yogurt, raspberry pie filling, and granola. This was so simple to do. I placed the yogurt into a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip. I also placed the raspberry pie filling in another pastry bag fitted with a smaller round tip. Start with yogurt and place a small amount of yogurt into the bottom of your shot glass. Next, do a layer of raspberry pie filling. Place your tip against the glass and rotate your shot glass as you go until you have added a layer of filling all the way around. Place a small amount of granola on top and then repeat. We also purchased mini spoons from IKEA to accompany these little yogurt parfaits. Simple, beautiful, and they taste great! You can’t beat that.

The amazing donut tower located in the center of the table was directly inspired by Paige, from Paiges of Style. She used a similar donut tower in her {Charming & Fresh} Spring “Baby Sprinkle” shower. We stacked mini powdered donuts on a cake stand, used a skewer in the center of the stack for added support, then started stacking donuts. We embellished the donut tower with amazing mini fondant peonies from Charynn of Two Sugar Babies. Floral pins were also to the peonies added for addition glam.

The beautiful chocolate swirled fruit cups and faux straws were purchased at Whole Foods. Instead of buying these pre-filled, Lindsey purchased the chocolate cups and straws and added her own assorted fruit to help cut down on the cost. In store, the “finished” versions are around $5.99 each. She was able to make these for almost half the price!

A ton of the other food was made by the bridal party – including the mini quiche, strawberries filled with amoretto cream cheese, scones, and bacon. The macarons were purchased from Jade Teahouse in Portland. I made the shortbread cookies, and sent my friend Jennifer, of Frost the images for the edible frosting decals.

The shower was more than any of us could have ever hoped for! It just goes to show you that a good idea, planning, and a lot of help can make any event perfect!”
