My Sister's Bridal Shower

Here are some details from my sister's bridal shower this weekend. Each of the attendees went home with a choice of hair pins or earrings. Little guests got Tinkerbell sticker earrings and rings from Michael's.
Our Hostess Erin opened her home for the party for 15 people. This was the coffee station. Show sweet : )
Erin also made quiches, chicken salad and scones.

Shannon brought caprese salad and hummus & pita.
Michelle brought a veggie tray and pasta salad.
I made cream cheese cookies, coconut cupcakes and raspberry chocolate brownies.

Yarn Pom Pom Garland

Taking inspiration from the recent issue of Sweet Paul, I thought wouldn't it be sweet make a yarn pom pom garland for my sister's upcoming bridal shower?  I've been making pom poms a few each night while I watch TV.
That blue gizmo is a fancy pom pom maker you can buy at Joann's or Michael's, or you can simply make your own using Prudent Baby's tutorial.  Once I had made all my pom poms (18 from 1 bundle of yarn), I strung them on yarn with a beading needle.

Then you just space them out as you like.  So, here's how they look in my living room.

BTW - I love my new camera.  I can take pictures at night in my dark living room and they still turn out decent!
