Here's a bridal shower I did this past weekend. This is was for my husband's co-worker's daughter who are practically like family. The theme of the bridal shower was coffee. It was held at Por Fin restaurant in Coral Gables. The upstairs part of the restaurant had a private section with a bar, tables, chairs and lounge area. The decor was absolutely perfect because it matched with the theme color: chocolate brown. The tables had adorable favors such as little coffee cups with matching saucers, little coffee pots or "Cafeteras" as Cubans would say, and little coffee scoops. The flower arrangements were beautiful as well with clear vases filled with coffee beans. My delicious decor was the perfect touch for the occasion. I used my white wooden stand with a chocolate brown ribbon trim. Each tier had a different delicious goody. It started from coffee cup cupcakes made of chocolate cake with a Kahlua mocha chip buttercream filling, and a marscapone buttercream swirl. I added a sprinkle of cocoa powder and a royal icing handle. The next tier had mexican wedding cookies aka almond cookies. They were packaged in clear boxes and wrapped with a thin chocolate brown ribbon. More cupcakes were added and the last tier had decorated sugar cookies. One side had coffee cups cookies and the other coffee pot (cafetera) cookies. All sugar cookies were decorated with fondant with royal icing details. Absolute perfection!
