We had a great time celebrating Jackie + Burak on at their shower on Friday night! Jackie is one of my oldest friends. We grew up in the same neighborhood and went to preschool together and have been close ever since. To celebrate her upcoming wedding in Estonia (the country on the Baltic sea), Kara, Erika and I threw her and Burak a shower!
It was fun to create fun ways to display their pictures from around the world. Burak is from Turkey and the couple lives in France right now, but met in Spain when they were both living there. They have been all over the world together!
We bought a roll of burlap ribbon and attached black and champagne ribbon to it, before hanging pictures from it.
We also made a classic Congratulations sign!
For drinks for the party we served:
- water with lemons + limes
- red wine
- white wine
- red sangria (the couples fave)
Caramel and cheese popcorn from Costco is always a party favorite!
Pesto Tortellini Skewers for an appetizer.
Classic microwave popcorn – Jackie’s favorite food!
For dinner we did a simple menu that was made earlier in the day to maximize our time at the party.
Fresh french bread and multigrain bread
Green Beans and Almonds
Classic Caesar Salad
Roasted Vegetable Orzo (recipe this week)
Double Chocolate Brownies, Candy Bar Cookies & Lemon Bars
Anna matched the Bride and was excited to be included at the party.
