It was in the afternoon so we served bite sized foods. I made Chicken Salad sandwiches, Pimento Cheese sandwiches, and Cake Pops. I ordered a Fruit and Veggie Tray from Publix. We also served Champagne punch, Champagne-free punch, soda, and water.
Pom Pom Decorations (pop pop haha)
Gift Table (pre-gifts)
I set the chairs out to direct the guests into the living room
Oh, what's that you ask? Did I make the cake pops? Why yes, I did! And since you asked, here's how!
STEP 1: Bake a cake. I made one White cake and one Devils Food. Let cakes cool overnight
STEP 2: Crumble up cake, put back in mixer. Then, roll a spoonful into a ball. Place balls in fridge for 30 minutes. Then stick a candy stick in the balls, place back in fridge for 30 minutes.
STEP 3: While balls are chilling in the fridge, melt chocolate. I used White Chocolate Candy Melts from Michaels and a Double Boiler to melt it.
STEP 4: Place pops in this nifty holder from Michaels
STEP 5: place in fridge overnight, then decorate!
I thought you'd never ask! Here's how I made the pom pom decorations...
STEP 1: Place 8-10 sheets of tissue paper together. Fold into a Fan Fold
STEP 2: Wrap flower wire around center
STEP 3: Trim edges into a round shape
STEP 4: Pull apart one layer at a time
No, wait! I have to show you one more thing...
