As far as food, I wanted to do a mediterranean/Greek theme for a few reasons. 1) I've been loving the food lately! 2) It's pretty. It's just so colorful! 3) Mary and Jimmy are Greek! Perfection! So I began scouring my favorite food bloggy sites and put together the menu below. I was so nervous and so excited. Were they going to work out? Would they look good? Would it taste good? eek!! I made everything Thursday night, but about an hour before the shower I put items together and set it all up. Here goes! And a special thank you to For the Love of Cooking, Recipegirl and Cooking Light...

Please note: We LOVED every recipe. Seriously! The recipes are posted below - AMAZING - I was so happy with it. ALSO, we had A LOT more food than shown above - I restocked the pasta bowls at least 2 more times, same with the greek Salad bites, skewers, etc.
