My Sister's Shower

Well it was a busy weekend! Sorry I didn't post but I wanted to make sure I put all my efforts into making this day special for my sister Toni.

Its funny that when you are small you never realize how much a sibling will mean to you as you get older. We used to pull each others hair out and pinch till we broke skin. I know, horrible! Now I can't imagine what I would do without her! She has always been there for me, that's what make this day special! Now I can do something for her!

All in all I think it came out nice.

I made chicken salad croissants, fresh fruit salad, shrimp, strawberry spinach salad with strawberry vinaigrette, pinwheel sandwiches, champagne punch and sangria. The colors were Tiffany Blue and black.

The desserts were strawberry cheese tarts, raspberry cake and my mom made chocolate truffles. I made little "Tiffany" boxes to put truffles in for the Thank You favor.

It was an intimate crowd that made it perfect to be able to sit and talk and visit for awhile!
She got a lot of great gifts too!

I got the dish set she registered for at Macy's. I fell in love with the colors and pattern so I had to get her the 4 place settings. I also got the serving bowl and platter to go with it!

I also gave her my painting of "Rhythm"  that she wanted to go in her new home.

I think she had a great time and she seemed so happy. Although she is tired and probably a little stressed with the wedding around the corner. She was able to sit and laugh and enjoy the day!

We will always be there for each other. This is the time we celebrate! Now its time to plan a wedding reception!

But first I have a Memorial Day Picnic coming up I have to shop for so another busy week!

I will be doing a Giveaway soon so stay tuned! Tomorrow I get to show you something awesome....I can't wait!

What a sweet sister you are! Love the color theme of blue and black. That food table is making me hungry- I think I just worked up an appetite while out walking. LOL
