Since the wedding is on New Year's Eve and the colors are black, silver/pewter and ivory, I wanted to play off that a bit. We decided to make the shower a cocktail hour theme and asked all of the guests to dress in cocktail attire. I thought it would be fun to give people an excuse to dress up and attend an evening shower.
Thanks to Pinterest, I found some appetizers that I thought would be more unique than the typical appetizers people find at parties.
For the food, we had the following:
Pear prosciutto crisps
Lemon Raspberry Cake
We also made a signature drink, The Frenchy, and had white and red wine, Mimosas, Cranberry juice with champagne and sparkling water.
These were so good! They were the hit of the party!
The cute silver trays are from Dollar Tree and the silver chargers are from Michael's and were also a dollar.
I didn't have any hand in actually making the desserts, and I only tasted the lemon raspberry cake, but it was delicious! The one thing I did do for the dessert table was make this adorable heart garland.
The woman who made that one sewed hers, but I don't sew, so I just taped the string to the hearts. I bought black and silver glittery paper and some shimmery white and nearly black paper. I failed to figure out that as the hearts spun, the back of the paper would show and I had only used single-sided paper. Oh well. It was still cute!
Sorry for the bad lighting.

The rest of the decor was kept pretty simple. I got a few vases from Dollar Tree and covered them in black glitter and then got a cute 'D' vase from Michael's for about a dollar. I used red roses for contrast and simplicity. I also printed some engagement pictures and placed them around the room.
Everything turned out really well and my sister loved it, so that's all that matters! Next up, Bachelorette party!
Bride, sisters and mom.
