Peony Bouquet Cookies for Bridal Shower

I made these "Peony Bridal Bouquet" cookies for my mom's friend's daughter, Elizabeth, for her recent bridal shower.  The cookies were based on the cookies I did for this post, but slightly modified in color and design.  The ivory and green colors were simple and fresh and almost gave the cookies a "shabby chic" look.  They ordered the cookies without any favor packaging since they already had favors.  Instead they put them out on platters with dessert.  I actually don't have any photos of the cookies from the shower, but I styled them a bit here for "photo sake".

I also experimented with a fun way to package these cookies using mini "diamond" beads and stitched edge grosgrain ribbon.



My mom did the cake for Elizabeth's shower, which I think came out amazing!  It was her first or second time doing a hand-painted cake design.  But as you'll see, it looks quite "pro" because she's a superstar.  The cake design, specially requested by the bride-to-be, is inspired by a Cath Kidston fabric/pattern.

I think this was the particular pattern inspiration, which is called "antique rose":


Here's the cake!  (Photos compliments of my dad!)


Here are a few "real" party snapshots of Elizabeth and her cake from Facebook.   I especially liked the one of the three sisters (and niece)!  :)
