April "showers" of recipes: "Angela's Berry Grapeful Party Punch"

This month there will literally be "April showers" for me! Two wedding showers will be held this month for me and my fiance' Craig. We are blessed to have wonderful friends and family to celebrate this special time in our lives with us and each of the shower hostesses have a special place in my heart. In celebration of these upcoming showers, each week during the month of April I will be sharing with you a favorite shower recipe I have created in my kitchen. This week, I'm sharing a purple party punch perfect for occasions such as a wedding or baby shower, birthday party or church women’s social. I hope you will find this punch “berry” wonderful!
