Here was the menu:

-fresh cut veggies (green beans, carrots, brocolli, celery, and cucumber) with spinach veggie dip.
-homemade hummus with sundried tomato and artichoke hearts in it and pita chips.
-mini caprese salad- tooth picks with a mini mozzerella ball, basil leaf, and grape tomato on each one (this was my favorite thing, I was proud of that idea :)
-pasta salad with roasted red pepper, artichoke hearts, and feta and vinegrette
-creamy pasta salad made with a mix of reduced fat mayo and plain non-fat yogurt, dill, and cucumbers.
-plain chicken salad
-tuscan style chicken salad with sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and olives.

The pasta salads
Kelly's aunt made a fantastic cake. She's making Kelly's wedding cake. So tasty!
Candace (Kelly's maid of honor) provided wines, lemon water, and lemonade. One of the wines was actually made by a friend of her and her husbands and was really fruity and tasty. And 12% alcohol. One glass for me before I switched to water!
We did the obligatory games. These ones were actually original, I hadn't played any at a shower before. We all had to write down a piece of advice for Kelly. Then the silly game- we had to design underwear for Kelly and she had to try it on (over her clothes).
She was a good sport about it :)
Then she opened her presents.
I reminded everyone to take some sachets on their way out. I made them as favors by using little purple pouches I got at Michaels and filling each one with some potpourri. Greg helped me print the tags using the address label setting on the computer, on purple cardstock. Then I cut them out with scrapbooking scissors to make the scalloped edges. Pretty cute, right?
We had a LOT of food leftover. I think I got a little out of control at the prospect of being responsible for all the food. Luckily I'm meeting some friends for a picnic outside tonight and sent them all an email telling them I'd supply most of the food!
