A Valentine’s Themed Bridal Shower

The day after Valentine’s Day, Mr. K and I had a Valentine’s-themed shower hosted by friends and family back home. This was our first official wedding event, and it was so much fun!

The hostess of the shower asked me for an array of pictures of Mr. K and me, from baby pictures to engagement pictures, to use at the shower. I didn’t learn what she was using them for until I arrived, but it was the cutest idea: picture trees!

I had a great time seeing lots of friends and family from back home and snacking on Valentine’s treats! But my favorite food item was the punch! It was so good that I had to find the recipe! It is so yummy!

Red Hot Punch with heart-shaped ice!

Another delicious treat were Rolo Pretzel Turtles. These are easily made with miniature pretzels, a bag of Rolos, and your choice of nuts. They are sweet, salty, and best of all, heart-shaped! Follow this link for the recipe.
