Bridal Shower!

My good friend Charlene is engaged, and this past weekend a few of us threw her a bridal shower in NYC. We were all in charge of different parts of the shower, and my friend Michelle and I were responsible for food/drinks.

What does one serve at a bridal shower? Dainty things! Like chocolate covered strawberries, for example.

And cupcakes. Michelle and I couldn't find red food coloring, so these are "brown velvet" cupcakes. Really, they're just plain ol' chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

Cucumber sandwiches. These weren't as dainty as the ones I envisioned -- we used peasant bread, and that stuff is huge and hearty. We improvised the filling a little bit, but it turned out to be very tasty. These sandwiches were a hit!

Champagne and strawberries. We're pretty classy.

And just to keep things interesting...jello shots! Strawberry, lime, and peach flavored. Recipe can be found here.

Happy Shower, Charlene! We love you!
