Bridal Shower Tablescape

I posted this bridal shower last week, and now Kelly is having a party to show your wedding showers. I am linking to her blog. Check out all the other showers here for great ideas.
This is my first time to join in Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan , . I hope this qualifies since I am showing my table. Ha. This past weekend we hosted a bridal shower for my dear friend Betsy's son, Matthew and his fiancee, Leslie. Come on in and enjoy the party.
It was a beautiful day. I added wreaths from my daughter's wedding decorations to the door and tied tulle bows to the porch lights to welcome our guests.

We set up the beverage station on the kitchen island. We served sweet tea, (yes this is the South , and we like our sweet tea ), and cherry limeade punch from Italian beverage jars. The glasses came from Dollar Tree.

Ham rolls are served on a tiered tray from Garden Ridge.

Fruit was skewered into a pineapple for a centerpiece. Of course we had the obligatory cheeseball with crackers.

These are chocolate cheesecake truffles I made by baking a cheesecake with no crust, and then scooping with a small cookie scoop and freezing. Then I dipped them in melted chocolate and white coating.

Homemade chicken salad on croissants from Wal-Mart. Don't you just love the pinwheel croissants? I had never seen them before. Are you getting hungry yet?

The cupcakes were to die for from Muddy's Bake Shop in Memphis.

A few pictures of the happy couple on the end of the table.

Here's the whole spread.

The dress was purchased from Goodwill many years ago and worn by my youngest daughter for playing dressup . She is engaged now,and planning a wedding for next April. I

My mother made a banner that read, "She said yes" to hang on the mantel with a couple more pics of Matt and Leslie.

I made a display on a side table of old family wedding pictures, from my last post.

Here are Leslie and Matt with their mothers.

Leslie, the bride, with hostesses, my mother , seated, I'm second from left , and my daughters. We had an enjoyable day, and they received some very nice gifts.
Happy tablescaping!

You incorporated so many beautiful and thoughtful elements for this charming party table! Those chocolate cheesecake truffles are making my mouth water! I haven't seen the pinwheel croissants before, but I've never met a croissant I didn't like!

Your fruity centerpiece is VERY festive. Great post!

My computor says it has a virus, and it wants me to download their anti virus software ( which I know is just spyware and is a scam) so I always press cancel. Now my computor freezes about 30 seconds after I log on and it will not let me acess the Internet. How can I get it to stop freezing so I can download the anti malware software?? Or how can I just get rid of it all together. [url=]santoramaa[/url]
