Bridal Shower & Blog Candy

I co-hosted a Bridal Shower this past Friday night. I’ve shown you the invitations already a few weeks ago which you can find here. Now I can share with you some pictures from the shower.

 DSCF9974 Center piece for the food table.


I made the labels using Top Note, printing the food names and Wild Flowers Stamps by MelsBrushes at (more on them on Wend.)


DSCF9982   Money tree for the Bride-to-be as she is moving out of state and it would be to hard to take gifts with her. She got the money hanging from the tree. A friend made the tree for us using his own money!

And now for the CUPCAKES! I made two different kinds, Banana Pudding and Key Lime Pie. Since both are so good, I doubled the recipes and made 88 cupcakes!! Recipes can be found in the book “Cupcakes! from the Cake Doctor” by Anne Byrn. (or if I get enough requests, I will post them in a separate post, just let me know)

Banana Pudding Cupcakes (filled)

Key Lime Pie Cupcakes (filled)

and now for some BLOG CANDY. The money tree is made completely out of one dollar bills. Tell me how much you think is on there NOT INCLUDING THE MONEY HANGING DOWN. Here is another shot of the tree. DSCF9992

The person closest to the correct amount will win a copy of the August Crafts ‘n Things that I am published in (will even sign it if you wish). August Cover If there are several people close to the correct amount, then will do the drawing. Blog candy will close on Wend morning when my next post is due. Please make sure you leave me a way to contact you when you leave a comment. Good luck!

        Thanks for stopping by!

My guess for the tree is $125

What a beautiful party!! Great job on all the decorations. I am guessing that there is 135.00 on the tree. You can contact me through the design team at TMITA. Thanks, Amber.

What a wonderful looking Bridal Shower. I have never seen so much work put into a party like this. The money tree is a wonderful idea. There is so much money scrunched together but I'm going to say there is $250.00 is in it. I may be thinking high but I think there is alot more in the middle. I love these guessing games. Thanks for the chance to play.

Everything looks amazing, Amber! And that money tree is such a creative gift! I'm not good at guessing games but will throw out a number - $200.

Fabulous looking cupcakes and the money tree is definitely a winner! My guess would be $150! :) My co-workers made me one when I got married and it was the most creative/useful gift I received!
