Tuscan Bridal Shower

Last weekend I hosted a bridal shower for my sister-in-law. Sunflowers, Olive Branches, Tuscan food, Bellinis and Mimosas were on the menu for the afternoon party at my house. Jessica of Tulaloo designed the gorgeous Tuscan themed invitations and papergoods.

Each guest was asked to bring a favorite family recipe to add to the bride’s recipe box, she will now be stocked with good recipes for at least a full year!!

Delicious homemade Italian Pizzelles (made by my mother-in-law)

And who can resist a diamond ring sugar cookie?! (made by my mom)

Or one of my Sunflower chocolate cupcake?!!

With the Bride and Groom both being avid readers (he’s an English professor)  I decided for the favors to fill little bags with homemade biscotti and packaged them with a couple tea sachets. They were tied with a custom made bookmark (by Tulaloo) with the the Bride and Groom’s names and wedding date.

Nothing more fun than putting together an event for your own family!
