Wedding Shower Planning- with very little time to prepare

skoosha | Jul 8, 2010 03:53 PM

So I'm planning my best friend's wedding shower. She lives in Vancouver and I live in San Diego. I will be flying out the night before the shower and get there about 8pm.

She wants to have the shower about 1-2pm so I'd only have the morning to shop and prepare. I'm also on a tight budget so that doesn't help.

I'm torn between a cheese & chocolate menu (her favorite things) or a tapas menu (her wedding is gonna be kind of Spanish style). I love the cheese & chocolate menu- it's fun and it'd be less work- BUT it'd be more expensive. The tapas menu could take a lot more work but be less expensive.

I could possibly make a thing or two before hand as long as it doesn't require refrigeration and isn't too terribly fragile so I can take it in my luggage.

One thing I do know is that there will be sangria. So if you have a great white and/or red sangria I'd be glad for the recipe! I'm open to any recipes and themes! Thanks in advance!
