Peacock Bridal Shower and Favors AND Customer Photo!

We have mentioned this before, but the Peacock theme is an incredibly popular one right now for weddings and bridal showers.  Today I have inspirations for those of you who are planning a peacock event.  (And if you AREN’T planning one… shouldn’t you be??)

So, to start us off, here is an incredibly simple way to decorate a dessert table by using peacock-colored cupcakes, like these from RoseBakes.com.  You could add simple toppers, and even peacock feathers as toppers (as mentioned in her post).  You can also wrap your cupcakes with our Peacock Cupcake Wrappers.

From Giggles Galore, comes an INCREDIBLE Peacock Party post with lots of inspiration.  The party was actually a Peacock Princess party, but I think the ideas could easily be adapted for a bridal shower.  My favorite?  The peacock cups!  You can check out the TUTORIAL HERE.


I found a Pretty Peacock “real party” post on The Hostess Blog, with tons of incredible inspiration.  I could not get over how gorgeous this next photo was… just had to share!  What a great idea for the drinks and dessert table:

 

Also, we are sharing another customer photo today!  Bonnie sent us a photo of some FAB Bridesmaid gift bags she put together, using our Peacock Favor Bags.

Here is a photo of the Favor Bags from our Diva Entertains shop:

And here is how Bonnie dressed them up… gold tissue paper, a peacock feather.  Did I say FAB??!

 We also have an article that can help you Plan a Peacock Bridal Shower!

We also carry the largest selection of quality Peacock Wedding Favors.

Rosemary Mashed Potatoes (with Lemon and Parmesan too!)

Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

Truth be told, the hubby and I are not to big mashed potato eaters.  They tend to be a bit on the ‘blah’ side.  That is until I concocted these.  It combines some of our favorite flavors: rosemary (which pairs perfectly with potatoes), lemon and Parmesan to elevate plain mashed potatoes into something a bit more sophisticated and special.  With very little extra effort.  In fact, I didn’t peel or use beaters or a potato ricer to make these; I simply use a wooden spoon to break up the small red potatoes called for in this recipe.  And although this recipe calls for butter, to turn these into low fat mash potatoes, swap out the butter with fat free evaporated milk.
