We are at it again with the tropical themes. I guess we love them and they come easy to us! So here we go...
We recently put together a bridal shower for a great friend. She is getting married in July and lives at the beach so the Tahitian/Tropical theme just just fit. We were able to recycle a lot of our decorations form past parties (50th anniversary, birthdays etc). It was a small, so we were able to go a little over the top on food and drinks.
We simplified the centerpiece to be functional and fun. We used sand and HOMEMADE bamboo, flower pens. Yes...homemade! Sometimes Katie and Cindy get so creative I could just die. Where they come up with these things is beyond me. But hey, that's why we are a good team, they are creative and I help organize and execute! Anyways, back to the pens:
We wrapped the patio posts in a burlap fabric and used real palms out the top to look like trees:
The famous KDC Event photo op was present (recycled from the anniversary party):
We served appetizers and a main course. The appetizers were delicious, see below for photos and details. For the main course we served chicken and beef kabobs with fresh veggies, coconut cilantro rice, and pasta salad.

The cake was a Momma Labonte original complete with surfer girl cake topper (thanks to Cindy):
It was such a fun shower to put on. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Let us know what your thoughts are on it, Thanks!
