When my party planning best friend got engaged and told me she didn’t want bridal shower I decided I just had to throw her one! It was extremely difficult to plan this one because she’s the one I usually bounce ideas off of but this time I was on my own. We decided to throw a couples shower so that John could be spoiled too 🙂 The colors were navy blue, mint green and some peach and chevron was the pattern of the hour.
Instead of a normal guest book, guest signed the matting around a framed picture of the couple.
I couldn’t believe what an amazing job my friend and coworker did on the cake pops that were used as party favors. My cousin helped make these cute tags!
They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach…that was the motto for the food table. The spread included pulled pork sliders, grilled cheese, drunken meatball sliders some veggie sticks displayed in glass vases.
The groom-to-be loves glass bottled sodas so we made sure there were plenty of those on ice.
Guests enjoyed their drinks in milk bottles (thanks etsy) with paper straws. Tags were custom made for the occasion – my cousin does amazing work 🙂
The dessert table included an oreo brownie truffle, chocolate covered strawberries, fruit skewers, oreo truffles
and a donut tower
We played games, opened gifts and celebrated the soon to be married couple. My best friend who didn’t want a shower had a fabulous time. The moral of this story? Never take no for an answer :p
