Cousin A's Bridal Shower

Cousin A's Bridal Shower 1

Here is my homemade tiered cupcake stand in action at cousin A's bridal shower. Turned out pretty nice huh?

And the medium-sized cake stand on top of the large-sized cake stand made a good tiered stand as well. Since they weren't glued together, they can be separated for later use.

I also lent my cousin all my other tiered trays too.

The food.

Her future mother-in-law made this great punch that's simply a 2-liter of Sprite or 7-Up, a bottle of cranberry juice, and big spoonfuls of orange sherbet ice cream.

Hmm. I wonder if anyone bought her the cake stands that were on her registry? :P

After a whole lot of eating, it was time for some bridal shower games. Cousin A had to eat a piece of gum every time her answers didn't match up with her fiance's. She went through the whole pack, but insisted that several of his answers were wrong, or that he made up something on the spot and didn't actually have an opinion. Uh huh.

I had to skip out in the middle of bridal shower bingo because I had a flight to catch.
