My Bridal Shower Weekend Food Recap…

Pin It PIN IT!

Aren’t these wedding ducks the cutest?!

I had one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long while, mostly due to the fact that I have such an incredible group of friends and a fabulous family! My aunt and best friends mother [aka second mom] hosted my bridal shower in Cleveland and the overwhelming love and support I got for my upcoming marriage was truly remarkable! Not to mention, I scored some pretty sweet loot! Because this is my foodie/healthy blog and most of ya’ll only like me for my recipes, health tips and witty comments, I’m going to showcase some of the amazing eats I had this weekend! For more bridal shower pictures and deets on the wedding , visit my wedding blog! The shower was held at the cutest little wine bar in Rocky River, OH! The room we were in was cozy with a roaring fireplace and tons of of windows. As a certified wino, this was the perfect place to host my shower! Yesterday before I had to hop back on a plane to reality, my aunt had a fun little brunch at her place with homemade quiche, strata, fruit salad and a delicious Swedish tea cake. Safe to say, I ate a lot of good food that is in no way healthy. Oh, and I also drank my face off, college style. Life’s too short not to eat full fat strata and drink a bottle of champagne for breakfast! [Photos were shot by myself and my amazingly talented Aunt, Sue Weber!]

Personalized m&m’s with our faces, wedding date and wedding bells!

Delicious avocado, tomato and cheese crustinis!

Corn Chowder…amazing!

Buffalo and blue cheese wraps!

Fabulous and trendy lemon cupcakes with sugar C & E letters! They were incredibly moist and flavorful!

And of course there was wine!

Drink table for the brunch! Mimosas and other mixers!

The 4 types of quiche Sue made! I tried one of each, obviously!

Roasted brussel sprouts and asparagus

Beautiful Swedish tea cakes!

Next post will be a very easy Eat Skinny Be Skinny fruit salad! Amazing food, amazing weekend and even more amazing company! Can’t wait to share the next set of vacation food pictures from Vegas! [Er, vacation drunk photos more like it!]

    Gorgeous photography! Very cool and glam shower. Love the duckies and the M&M's to add a little punch to such a glitzy wine party! Those cupcakes were so cute. Just great food. You got spoiled! (as you should)

    Ummm what a yummy looking spread!!!! Looks like you were spoiled indeed!

    Also - what is it with bridal showers and quiche??? I feel like those are a mandatory item to feature for some reason...we had an assortment at mine as well! No complaints...because they are yummy, but I just think its funny that they always seem to pop up!
