50s Housewife Bridal Shower Part 5 -- Party Time!

I respectfully ask that you not pin pictures of my children to Pinterest. Thank you!
 Here's part 5 and the wrap-up of my sister's 50s Housewife themed bridal shower. Her wedding is going to have a vintage modern flavor with a coral and blue color scheme and lots of lace. I wanted to incorporate some of those elements into the decor of her bridal shower. We also wanted to use her milk glass collection to add to the vintage theme. (Check out more shower posts here: Pennants and Poms, Coffee Filter Wreaths, Lacy Mason Jars, and Games and Decor)

To sum it all up:
Theme: 50s Housewife
Invites (designed with free digital scrapbook kit elements, Macromedia Fireworks, and MS Publisher; free fonts: Sparkly and Cherry Cream Soda; some of the personal info has been blanked out):
Games and Door Prizes
Prize for Best Apron (She won for borrowing an apron, hat, and beaded necklace from her 2-year old!) 
and "1950s Price is Right"
Our lovely Bridal Shower Beauty --- modeling the product up for bid.
A few of our willing contestants with the  bride-to-be.

Cheese Ball and Crackers, Deviled Eggs, and Pillow Mints (all served in milk glass or on white platters with coral chargers)

Desserts: Hershey Kiss Pretzel Treats, Hard Candy, and Couture Cupcakes
Decor: milk glass, lace, mason jars, coral and blue, gerbera daisies, 50s housewife clip-art, and pics of the happy couple

A gift for the groom? :)
My mom, my sis, and me! I made the apron for my sister as part of her gift and
loved it so much I had to make one for me.
