It's a High Tea Bridal Shower.

  Posting two days in a row after being away from my blog for about two months is a good sign. So what have I been doing all this time? A good part of my time was spent making Christmas cards, invitations for my neice's wedding and birthday decorations for my granddaughters.
  That was only some of it. Mainly, I have been gone. My husband and I spent a month in Europe. We took a two week river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. After spending 2 days in Amsterdam, we took a train to Paris. From there, we ventured to Bayeux to explore the beaches of  Normandy and Mont St. Michel before heading back to Paris to catch a flight home.
  Home for less than I week, I once again left for Jersey to attend my neice's shower. I volunteered to make the 55 shower invitations, but this time I enlisted some help from my sister, the MOB. Since it was a High Tea, I made a tea bag invitation.

Her bridal colors are red, black and white. The wedding invitations had a damask design to them so I added it on the tea bag invite.

  The shower was wonderful. The food was outstanding. For favors, each guest took home two shorbread cookies which I made at my sister's house the day before the shower. I never took pictures, but the cookies looked similar to these.

 It is good to be home. Now it's a mad rush to finish my Christmas cards.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
