For brunch we had an interactive task; make your own omelets! But how do you do this without making a mess/taking up a lot of time with having a large group? Well take a Ziploc baggy and stuff it in a mug with the opening draped over the lips of the mug, add whisked egg + toppings and seal up! (make sure you write your name on it) then place baggy in a pot of boiling water for about 5-10 minutes and voila! Your omelet is ready and delicious with very little cleanup.
While everyone waited to make their omeltes, food was brought over to each table. I thought this was a wonderful idea. No lines or traffic jams or trying to juggle your plates to the buffet table! Such an easy idea and a quick way to feed your guests.
Some other food on the menu, in addition to the omelets, were fresh berries with a fruit flavored balsamic vinegar, baked brie, “monkey bread”, assorted cakes, fresh grapes and of course my favorite; Gouda shrimp and grits!
The afternoon ended with us all writing a memory we had with Nikki (but not too descriptive) and the Bride had to guess which guest had said it. Nikki has a pretty good memory, so she guessed basically all of them!
Thank you very much to Teresa (and Truman + Mal + Mandi!), and everyone else who made Nikki’s shower a hit. It was truly special and a perfect way to celebrate Nikki. Check out some more pictures of the shower below!
