When I thought of a picnic-themed shower I envisioned a lot of fresh flowers, floral fabric tablecloths, freshly squeezed lemonade and light picnic fare.
The above flowers were from the St. Paul Farmers' Market. I separated two huge bunches and put them in mason jars.
We had cute favor boxes and wrote "Love is Sweet" on each one with two chocolate chip sandwich cookies inside.
We placed the favor boxes on top of a cake stand. They were blowing all over the place and the tops kept flying off!
Amy loves cheese so we had a couple cheese platters with her favorites including camembert and gorgonzola.
Co-host Melanie handmade fabic napkins and tied some leftover fabric to mason jars which held the silverware.
Freshly squeezed lemonade made my Amy's grandmother. It was delicious.
Gorgeous and delicious cupcakes from Sweets Bakeshop in St. Paul. We had Lavender, Very Vanilla, Nutroll, Black and White and many other flavors.
The gorgeous bride to be with her hair swirling in the crazy wind!
