Caprese salad skewers

My cousin Arie is getting married! So a couple of weeks ago I went to a bridal shower for his lovely fiance, Jessie. The shower was "stock the kitchen" themed. Each person was asked to bring a dish to share and the recipe so Jessie and Arie would have lots of new things to try in the kitchen. I decided to make Caprese salad skewers. I had seem them on Pinterest a few times and they looked simple enough for a party, plus I figured lots of people would bring casseroles and things like that to the shower so I wanted to bring something different. There were lots of casseroles, just as I had expected, and salads of the pasta and fruit varieties, but wouldn't know it, I try to be different and the only duplicate dish at the shower was caprese salad skewers. They are just that good (actually I wouldn't know how good they were because I don't like tomatoes unless they are cooked in something so I didn't taste them, but people ate them all so that's a good sign).
