I have tons of vintage linens, so I picked some coordinating ones for the tables that would look nice with the pinks, mint green, oranges, and yellows. The dessert table got a lovely yellow rose one. I got my milkglass collection out, as well as some brass items. I love milkglass and I love brass. They really match to anything. I borrowed matryoshkas from my sister to add to my collection, and we were good to go. I decided I had spent enough on party decorations, so the flowers were from my mom's garden.
tart for her own shower, but hey, she offered! Isn't it gorgeous? The cookie recipe is here if anyone is interested. My grandma always bakes these for us when we visit; they are so traditional Ukrainian, and I can't get enough of them. I usually bake them without sprinkles, but this time I wanted to be extra fancy. Thanks, Natasha, for the recipe.
We had grilled chicken, grilled bratwurst, salmon, baby potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, broccoli cranberry salad, and the very traditional Ukrainian cabbage salad.
One or two people went home early, but I think we got most of them here.
Thank you to everyone who came and celebrated with us. I hope it was a good time!
