Here is what the dessert table looked like:
Here's me assembling the bruschetta.
Do you love my apron?? That was the activity at the shower! They had them already made except the buttons and the waist straps and they had an instructor teach us how to make the buttons, sew them on and attach the straps! It was very easy and very fun! (plus not the usual bridal shower games) Here is a great book about it!
The pressed to order panini bar is always a big hit. It's especially great at a location like this where there were no ovens to keep things warm. I pre-made all the sandwiches and just pressed them when we started serving. All you need is a panini press and an outlet! (if you don't have a panini press, this is the one I like)
How cute are the silverware wrapped with a button!?
