My Godson, Casey, is getting married to my soon -to-be Godaughter, Sarah, and I am co-hosting a
The shower is this Saturday, April 25, in San Diego. Sarah and Casey will be honeymooning at my beachfront condo in Maui, so the shower theme is tropical!
I couldn't find any tropical wrapping paper liked, so I painted my own on butcher paper.
I have been busy shopping and preparing all the food for the event. I am bringing the food, a couple of games and prizes and serving platters with me to San Diego.
Hot crab dip
Puff pastry palmiers with ham and gruyere
Brie with passion fruit jam and macadamia nuts
Coconut shrimp with citrus-honey-mustard dipping sauce
Mandarin Cole Slaw with Asian Dressing
Tropical Rice Salad
Fresh fruit with pina colada dip
Mini coconut cream tarts
Mini cheesecakes with lilikoi (passion fruit) curd
Tropical sheet cake squares
Sarah's sister, Beth, is co-hosting the shower at her home, and will take care of decorations, tableware, tropical flowers, and tropical drinks! There may be a pina colada in my future!
I made 25 party favors, but will save those for tomorrow's post.
Tomorrow, I am not working, and will complete all the baking, and food prep. I LOVE days like that, spent in the kitchen with my to-do lists!
