A Perfect Bridal Shower

My mom's best friends hosted my first bridal shower. It was hosted at the beautiful home of Al and Nancy Manning who live on Lake Steilacoom. It was the perfect sunny day to be surrounded by family (my sister flew home the week before as a surprise for my bachelorette party) close friends and bridesmaids. The menu was delicious and featured 2 quiches - one with fresh local crab caught by a family friend & a vegetable quiche. This was served with a yummy strawberry salad, whole grain baguette and a divine butter. After gifts we all loved the brownie dessert that was topped with a chocolate mint ice cream and dark chocolate candy. As guests left, the homeowner Nancy gave each guest the most amazing bridal shower favor that fit the them of our Mexican wedding perfectly! The gift included a bottle of Modelo Mexican beer with a umbrella straw, notecards with flip flops on them, a mini bottle of tabasco, melon gum, and chocolates.
