Purple themed shower.
the mommy-to-be's favorite color was purple and really wanted a purple shower!
well, I wanted all of the food to have purple in it, so I made purple mashed potatoes, veggie shots (i colored the ranch dressing on the bottom purple) and had eggplant, purple carrots, peppers, squash, aparagus and cucumbers inside. I had chocolate rasberry wafer bites that I put little "n's" on for the mommys last name, I had rosemary cheese bites, that i had an olive on, which helped tie it in, grapes with a blackberry cream dipping sauce. I hung different shades of purple paper pom poms from the ceiling along with a purple bird cage that will later go in the nursery. On a mirror I made a "T" for Talia and hung different shades and sized ribbons behind it in place of streamers. We made purple passiontini's that were for everyone (grape juice for the mommy-2-be) that was rimmed with purple sugar and topped with a heart icecube. Chocolate cupcakes that had purple icing and butterschotch pudding on the inside (SO YUMMY!)
the veggie shots! once you get passed the purple dressing :)
know the theme you are going for early and collect early on. I got a wiltons purple icing dye from walmart after easter for 50 cents on clearence and I used it for quite a lot of things!
