APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY... BRIDES, PART II
Nothing is sweeter than a table full of decadent desserts except, maybe, a bride! And this darling bride is the sweetest!
Last week I gave you a peek at the savory food table at a recent bridal shower hosted at StoneGable. Click HERE to see original post.
So, this week it is time to see the desssert table. The bride loves daisies, yellow, country and cheesecake.
The theme for this shower was LOVEBIRDS, and the feel was vintage and organic with a dash of whimsy.
Desserts were set up on the kitchen table. The centerpiece was a tower of daisies.

A big fresh bowl of Strawberries with a fluffy fruity dip was the healthy choice on the table! The strawberries sat atop a twiggy wreath.
The utinsels and paper plates were gathered up in a white basket filled with shredded paper straw. A little nest and bird sat on the edge of the basket.
Three scrumptious cheesecakes were served, all cut a little differently. A strawberry swirl cheesecake with a chocolate cookie crust sat on a little green table. A raspberry cheesecake with a chocolate cookie crust was cut into individual round servings and placed on a low pedestal plate for interest...
And a clasic cheesecake for the purists was cut into small squares. These cheesecakes came from the Pelman Bakery, known for their distinctive cheesecakes.
A tiny nest was tucked in an open drawer of the green table while a bird lighted nearby.
To let our guest know about each dessert, soft aqua speckled eggs were labeled with the sweet's name.
The bride-to-be's mother (my friend Capi) made these fabulously beautiful and so delicious pansied shortbread cookies. The pansies came from her garden and are totally organic and edible. I asked her for the recipe, and a tutorial is up and coming! They were melt in your mouth wonderful and had a big WOW factor!
Our blushing bride seemed to love her day and with many hugs told me, "This was the best bridal shower ever!" What could be better than a happy young bride.
Everyone went home with fond memories and a pretty bag with a special cookie. It was a cut-out sugar cookie of a left hand with a big icing diamond on the ring finger. (Sorry- I forgot to get a shot of these... but the bags are in the white soup tureen in the right of the picture below).
I will be posting the recipes for the desserts on an upcoming Foodie Friday.
