Show Me a Couples Shower…..Bring a Blender for her, Some tools for him, or pick out a present for the two of them!
How do you decorate and celebrate a couples shower in February….. with love that is! Considering that the month of Love is February, what better time to host a couples shower when your house is decorated for Valentines!
As proper etiquette would have it, a shower is hosted after a wedding where everyone is not invited to the wedding……so the good friends of the mother and father of the groom hosted a couples shower. What better time than a noon Sandwich, chips and dip bar!
And where do we start? With a theme and color story!
Theme: Couples shower & wedding celebration. Color story: Red, pink and black and white! Hearts and Love!
here is the table setup:
Alta Lynn shows off the tablescape. A black table-cloth serves as a great backdrop with the punch of the hot pink paper mesh runner!
Show Me Tip: Invest in good quality fabric tablecloths. To create an inexpensive table runner use a length of mesh, the ends gathered with a rubber band and trimmed in coordinating ribbon. In this scene black and white polka dot ribbon is perfect!
Flowers and Coton Colors platter are elevated on a Pink cake stand. Creating different heights adds interest to your tablescape.
Show Me Tip: Gather up your serving pieces and set your table the day before the shower. Mark each platter or stand with a sticky note of which food goes where.
Black and white serving pieces are collected and used to support the color story.
Baked Hawaiian sandwiches were the star of the show. They are delicious and easy to make ahead. You may adapt to your taste and likes.
A vegetable tray, fresh fruit, and a selection of chips and dips completed the savory menu. Hearty enough for men!
A delicious selection of cupcakes, cookies and bars finished the party on a sweet note!
Ice tea bar and light fruit punch quenched everyone’s thirst!
Show Me Tip: Create a great 1st impression and set the theme for the celebration or event stating at your front door.
Live, love and laugh…Show Me a Happy Couple!
Happy Decorating y’all!
