The girls sent out E-vites and kept me updated with the guest count. While they took care of games, prizes, and other details, my sister- Bambie, bestie- Theisa and I took care of the menu, desserts and décor. We decided on having something light and an easy menu to prepare for the afternoon party such as finger foods, salad, charcuterie plate, crudité platter and chicken salad and pulled pork sliders.
The dessert table had a variety of goodies like fruit tarts, rice cakes, fresh fruits, etc. I was feeling a little sentimental, helping plan a bridal shower for my only daughter, so I thought I would surprise her with a “Barbie cake”! She had that when she was five, which seemed like it was only yesterday and it brought back sweet memories! I also got her some cookies as party favors, some in the shape of our 3 dogs, as requested by her, to remember Chinky and Buzz- their first pet dogs, and Ari, our now pet boxer. These awesome cookies and Barbie cake were custom made for me by Natasha of thewhiskfultable.
