{Couples Shower} 6.9.2012

I had a great time putting together the Couples Shower that David and I hosted, along with the other bridesmaids and their beaus, for Emily and Clint a couple of weeks ago.
Groom & Bride

The planning took a lot of work but it was exciting to see it all come together!

We decided on a color scheme of turquoise, green and coral and a camping/picnic-y feel with the decor. We set up tables out behind the deck with floor length white table cloths and centerpieces with flower arrangements in vintage mason jars and paint dipped mason jars, twiggy candle holders, and other rustic elements. I picked up a few flower bunches at my local grocery store and mixed a few flowers in from my mother-in-laws yard to create all the flower arrangements- by far the most inexpensive way to go!

The food was absolutely delicious (Thanks to Josh & Hilary and Rickey & Erin!). We decided what was better for a camping picnic than hamburgers and hot dogs with all the "fixins".

 and Kayla made the yummy desserts which she displayed so cute on my little blue chest of drawers!

We set up two canoes in the yard- one to hold the drinks (which we served in mason jars)...

and one to hold the gifts.

We popped a tent up in the corner of the yard and hung a quilt as a backdrop for our photo booth and set up a prop table with mustaches on a stick, chalkboard, hats, and signs. There were so many fun pictures for Emily and Clint to look back at!

The letter "M" guestbook, the vintage collage frame, and the "things" game on a table up on the deck for guests to stop by when they got a free minute.

A lot of fun was had by all. They opened all their gifts and then ended the night with s'mores around the fire and a game of ladderball. 

It was a great night! The happy couple had a wonderful time- and that's all that matters right? Best wishes Emily & Clint!!
