On Saturday, May 25, Chelsea, Laura, & I hosted a bridal shower for Miss Allison! We reserved a table during non-peak hours at Aviary Cafe & Creperie in Springfield. Their shabby chic unique decor is the perfect complement to their sweet treats — making it the perfect place to shower Allison!
Games: Chelsea and I planned the games and aimed for simplicity. I think we hit our target spot on.
After our guests arrived and ordered crepes, we began with He Said/She Said. The party-goers made their best guess on who said each phrase by holding up their mustache or lips prop. Speaking of props, props go to my oh-so-creative mother for helping me with the mustaches and lips! The were a hit!
Second, we wrote the couples love story with a pass-around sheet of paper. As you wrote your phrase, the only line you could see was the one written by the person to your left. Allison and Tyler’s story did involve Depends… I’m not sure whose idea that was… 😉
Food: Chelsea re-created the Aviary sweet crepes menu to allow our guests to choose their own crepe, without paying attention to the price. I ordered the Bananas Foster. It was the most popular crepe ordered, along with the Limoncello. You can read the entire Aviary menu here.
My crepe was delightful! It was a good mix of sweet, salty, and creamy. Yum!
Decor: Because the restaurant is decorated in a fun, shabby chic style, we did nothing. Not a thing. Chelsea created the place settings, along with my props, and we were set. It was perfect!
