Lori's Kitchen Shower

It was a beautiful day yesterday for Lori's Kitchen Shower.  We had 21 attend for Brunch and she was so blessed with many lovely gifts that she needed for her kitchen.  At the end of the shower she announced that she "can now cook".   It was a great day. (For those of you that might not know, their house burned to the ground in February and everything was a total loss)

The menu was Quiche, Scones, Fruit Slush and Chocolate Covered Strawberries.  I had 2 tables set up in the family room and extended the kitchen table to seat 8.  Everything looked very pretty and I am happy to say the food turned out very delicious.  I always worry about that when making pie crusts, especially for that many.

I had purchased paper plates, cups and napkins for the shower.  But, something just kept gnawing at me everyday and I finally gave in to it and decided to use my china etc.  I am just not a paper plate kind of "girl" for these kind of parties.  I was so tickled that I listened to myself and even though it was a ton more work (still washing dishes today) I was so very please with the way everything turned out.
I can't thank my friend Sherry and my two granddaughters for all their help.  They dished up the food, cleared the tables, stacked the dishes and moved all the furniture back to put the house back in order.
I was so very thankful!!!
It was a great day indeed!!!

You sure are the hostess with the mostess. What a wonderful setting and yummy looking food. I agree with you that paper just isn't the same as china. I love to set a pretty table too, but never seem to get the chance. God Bless You Joan for sharing your talent and your thoughtfulness.
