Each of the bridesmaids donated a door prize, and after every few shower gifts opened, the bride would stop and draw a name for a door prize! So some lucky guests got to open presents too (no....I was not one of them...boo).
We also purchased Thank You notes ahead of time and had each guest self-address an envelope, which will save the bride-to-be from having to address them later. We then used the envelopes for the door prize drawings.
I used my Cricut to make this cute "Happily Ever After" banner.
Other goodies included these lime Jello wedges. To make them, simply cut limes in half, remove fruit, prepare Jello per "Jigglers" instructions, poor into lime halves and let set. Once set, slice in half again with a wet knife.
Grandma June made this veggie platter and I just love the way she separated the different veggies by creating sections on the platter with iceberg lettuce leaves. The hollowed out green pepper as a dip container was a nice touch too!
We all had a great time at the shower and I am really looking forward to the big day! And before I sign off....one more look at these awesome cookies (tooting my own horn here...toot toot):
