Spring Break Part 1

My Spring Break was basically cut into two parts. Part 1 involved me going home and hosting a kitchen themed bridal shower for my friend Emily.

Here is a picture of the bride with the hostesses. The invitations had a 50's look, so my mom decorated the house using old kitchen gadgets and beautiful flowers.

I think she did a great job decorating! The shower was Sunday afternoon, so we served desserts only. We had cake, cookies, and candies.

My all time favorite food served was this donut cake. I got the idea for it from this blog, but I changed up the design a little. We put a small flower vase in the middle so the tulips acted as a cake topper. Being the architecture major I am, I constructed the donut cake with a larger sized mini-donut base and smaller ones staggered to the top. It was a big hit!

I think everyone had a great time!! Here's Emily showing off some of her new kitchen stuff! Is that not the cutest apron ever??

Spring Break part 2 will be posted later in the week...I don't want to overwhelm everyone!

Be sure to link up with Lauren and me on Friday for "See Where I Relax" and check out my purse garage sale! I'm still looking for 19 more "likes" on Facebook before I host a giveaway!
