I haven't been posting any recipes lately because we have been living in a hotel for a couple months! We were looking for a house in our new city and now we are waiting for it to close. So we have to eat out or prepare pretty simple meals. Nothing worth blogging about.
Anyhow, I wanted to share these bridal shower favors that I made for my brother's new wife's bridal shower. My sister and I threw a
Once we brought in a table and all the chairs and decorated (and once the bride came in!), the bed & dresser just faded into the background so it felt more like we were in a cute little bistro than in a bedroom. We bought some pastries, and my sister made muffins & a delicious egg/bacon/cheese/biscuit casserole. I wish she would make a cooking blog because no matter what she cooks, it comes out DELICIOUS. She is like King Midas but with food.
To make the favors, here is what you need:
-Small paper bags (from Michael's or Hobby Lobby)
-Printable shipping labels
-Ziploc sandwich bags
I made the labels using WordArt (on Microsoft Word) and the Avery template for the shipping labels (which you can download from Avery's website). I used the saying "The Perfect Blend" but since they were for a bridal shower it would've also been cute to use "Bridal Blend." (Oh and I used their actual names instead of "Bride & Groom" :) I printed the labels out and stuck them on the bags. Then I put about 8 tablespoons of coffee into a Ziploc bag for each favor before putting the coffee into the paper sacks. I folded over the top of the bag, stapled it, and then glued the ribbon on the top.
I'm not much of a crafty person, so I'm really proud of how cute these turned out!
