Bridal Shower for My Beautiful Sister-in-Law, Victoria!

I had the honor of throwing a bridal shower for my sister-in-law before she married my brother in July!

I wanted her shower to be really special so that she would know just how excited we are to welcome her into our family! I made tons of food and we played a lot of fun games. There was a lot of laughter, and even some happy & sentimental tears!

My sister-in-law’s name is Victoria, and she LOVES cupcakes! So I did her shower in a cupcake, hot pink, and teal theme.

I had SO many people compliment the Garlic Cream Cheese Chicken Puffs, and they were all eaten up very quickly! They are the easiest things ever. Here is the recipe:

You’ll need: 1 tube of refrigerated crescent rolls, 1 can of cooked chicken, garlic powder, and 4oz (half block) of cream cheese. You mix the chicken, cream cheese, and as much garlic powder as you like all together. Spread out the crescent rolls and cut each triangle in half. Now put a lump of the cream cheese mixture in each triangle and close up the dough, forming a ball. Place all of the filled crescent dough balls on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 325 degrees for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Anyway, back to the party…

On the food table I had placed a large mason jar full of chocolates, and as everyone loaded up their plates, they wrote down a guess as to how many chocolates were in the jar. The winner was the person who guessed closest to the correct number of chocolates (I had pre-counted them) and they got to take home the jar full of goodies as the prize.

A fun activity that we did at the party was a toilet paper fashion design contest! We split up into teams of 4, and each team had a model that they had to “dress.” They had to create their most beautiful wedding dress using nothing but rolls of toilet paper, teal streamers, and scotch tape! Once the time was up, all of the models showed off their dresses and Victoria got to pick her favorite one, and the winning team members all got prizes. This activity was a HIT!

We also played a paper game, where the guests had to correctly match the foreign ways to say “I Love You” to their correct country’s language. For example, “Ich Liebe Dich” is German.

After the games and activities were done, and everyone had full bellies, Victoria opened her presents. She got a good assortment of new stuff for her house as well as some fun little sexy things for her honeymoon! 😉

    Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
    make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Bless you

      Are you meaning the theme of the blog itself, or specifically this post about my sister-in-law’s bridal shower?
      The main blog design is from WordPress, and everything relating to the bridal shower I designed myself! 🙂
      Thanks!
