wedding wednesday {part two}

The Saturday afternoon of Erin's wedding weekend was very relaxing and while half of the girls were helping Erin will some errands in Austin, the rest were prepping food for her honeymoon shower. And in case you you don't know what a honeymoon shower is...let's hope it's self explanatory ;)

The theme for our menu was all the places Erin has traveled around the world since she loves traveling. And trying new food. We had to improvise a few items due to time constraints, but overall I feel like it came together perfectly!

To start, we made goat cheese & honey crostinis in honor of her trip to France. I simply sliced a baguette, brushed olive oil on both sides and toasted the bread until crisp. For her trip to Switzerland it was a no-brainer to incorporate cheese and we used an incredible caramelized onion, bacon, and Gruyere spread recipe that Natalie found.

To properly honor Erin's trip to Greece, we made mini gyros with lamb meatballs, cherry tomatoes, pita bread and tzatziki sauce. To sum up her trip to Italy we made a mini anti pasti station with salami, prosciutto, mozzarella and olives.

For dessert we made mini Nutella croissants using Pillsbury crescent rolls. The most intricate menu came from Australia and was no easy feat - Pavlova! While it didn't come out perfect, it was still delicious and only Erin really knew what it was supposed to look like :) Guests also enjoyed champagne & pink lemonade with a raspberry garnish.

Overall, I think Erin thoroughly enjoyed her soiree and we loved throwing it for her!

Stay tuned for the final post from the pictures!
