My adorable mom and I threw my niece a bridal shower. She is the first girl in the family to get married and we went all out. She loves "vintage" shopping and fashion, so we went with a retro theme. I designed (while Mom watched kids so I could think) the invites using the apron image from the crafty clip (recolored to match our theme) and got them printed at Costco. My mom helped me pick up, address, stamp (with pretty stamps), stuff, and send them. I love how they turned out.
Then while Jason was working super late one night, Mom and I baked! I had loved a pie in a jar that I got for valentine's day from Steph and decided they would be a great treat - pie and canning jars, what could be more retro?! Fortunately, they could be made ahead! We used apple and cherry pie filling and some lovely sugar. I made my first ever from-scratch pie crust earlier that day and we set up a serious assembly line after the girls were in bed then stuck them in the freezer! Thank you, Mom!small ice cream scoops that I stored overnight in a mini-muffin tin covered with plastic wrap to serve with the pies. (It's all about ease, so the hostess can actually enjoy the party, right?!) I had my family (who arrived early) tie little ribbons on the cooling pies so they were cute and could be eaten right out of the jar. YUM!
