Courtney and I threw a Bridal Shower yesterday for one of her best friends, Kindra. It turned out so cute and yummy! We decided to have a waffle bar and these chocolate waffles from The Food Network along with some Waffle Love waffles and cinnamon roll waffles were the stars of the show. I have not had a chance to try one of these yet but I was told that they were good but not very chocolatey. This picture is just chock full of Pick Your Plum products – the treat stand the waffles are on, the table runner, the paper plates, the mini chalkboard sign and the round metal tray with all the toppings in the background. If you aren’t familiar with Pick Your Plum, you should check it out, it’s awesome!
