Pin of the Week: Bridal Shower Food & Decor! Tea Sandwiches + Buttermints + Oreo Pops + Deviled Eggs + Bacon Cheddar Scones + Macarons
This is certainly the first time I've tried to pull off a party that was this fancy. Liam's birthday's up-till-now, have been pretty basic and simple, although I've liked them. But I wanted Jen's shower (since it's an adult party, not a kid one) to be a little nicer. I had to get inspiration, so I looked to Pinterest and of course, Jeran, who's done a couple of tea parties and blogged about them. I'll try to put a link for everything that I can.
this tea party that was Denali's 9th birthday.
this pin (I thought it would be like Oreo truffle pops, but easier... I would go the extra mile for the truffle pops next time).
this one, which turned out to be really delicious. I would make them again for Christmas morning or something (they were very similar to Grandpa's buttermilk biscuits, but with cheese and bacon and cayenne!)
Here are the now-infamous macarons. Remember how well my first batch went? Well the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th batches were a total flop. At least the 4th batch yielded just enough for the party. Now I'm out of almond flour and I may never attempt them again.
this pin to make a great letter M (how fortuitous that we will share the same last name initial again - back to having the same initials!)
I think that's everything!
