I found the invitation I wanted and showed it to my friends and Future Mother-In-Law throwing the shower.  They knew what theme I wanted but I was still surprised about alot of it.  In my family and circle of friends its not uncommon to have the bride give her opinion about the shower, be asked what food she wants served, etc.  I am a planner by nature and I love everything to be themed and to go together so its hard for me to completely let go 🙂

I’m obsessed with zebra print anything. I have been since I was 11!!!!! So, I’m kind of hoping they do a zebra themed shower, especially since Maid/Matron of Honor has my zebra print trenchcoat that I bought at Bebe a few years ago. She borrowed it for a weekend in LA, and I haven’t seen it since.

I really like the lingerie idea, too. But I think my sisters would be weirded out.

I know there is a surprise in the works bc I heard husband, Future Sister-In-Law and Maid/Matron of Honor talking about some kind of surprise for me.

We’re doing an Alice in Wonderland themed bridal tea. My Maid/Matron of Honor is making a topsy-turvey cake, cookies and drinks that say ‘drink me’ and ‘eat me’. She’s currently polling people to borrow a variety of mismatched tea cups, teapots and garden lanterns.

I think for attire, we’ll be doing something similar to what Ms. Guava-Tini suggested (big hats and dresses). I’m so excited. I can’t wait to see how it comes together!

I freakin’ LOVE that Alice in Wonderland theme!  So cute!  Make sure you have a teacup full of mustard for those wayward mice!

Mine was a complete surprise and was an Around the Clock themed shower. Guests were each assigned a time for their gift to relate too. i.e. 7am I got shower items, 5pm cocktail stuff, 7pm dinner plates etc.

My mom hired two tarot card readers for my shower. They set up a little area, and did reading for everyone. It was fantastic!!

My first shower was fruit themed and my most recent one was Mediterainean… both around food and totally tasty 🙂

We threw a "Happy Hour Shower" for a couple of friends of ours.  We had it at a local bar during happy hour and had appetizers and margarita/pina colada cupcakes.  The guests brought gifts that could be used during happy hour like wine glasses, serving platters, blenders, etc.)  It was a lot of fun and a good choice for a co-ed shower.

I just love this and found out about it yesterday! I’m an encore and Fiance is moving here to SW Georgia from SC so he knows some of my friends & people at church, but not alot of folks, so one of my girlfriends (who is also doing a reading in the wedding) is hostessing a couples shower for us (couples being used loosely-wanted husbands/SO to attend, but some of the guests are single) Also as an opportunity for David to meet some more people and alot of my friends husbands. We are having a UGA (University of Georgia) tailgate themed shower. I’m so excited! The friend who is hostessing it and I were talking about themes and ideas-we had already determined a cookout for it be relaxed and laid back (and more fun for the guys)-but with it being in the fall & football season will just be getting cranked up-I think it will be a blast!

It will be an “in and outside” party-serving on the counter in the kitchen, the table & a picnic table outside, people bring their tailgate chairs (which, except for a few FSU and UF and Tech fans…almost everyone here is UGA!) some pop up awnings set up in the yard-coolers around of beverages and lots and lots of yummy tailgate food! Decorations will be easy too-lots of red, black & white-they are talking about the cake-doing a cupcake cake or a red & black iced Georgia emblem. I think we may wear our Georgia gear too. I think it will be relaxed and easy-not stuffy at all. I want people to have fun, and with it being for us, not just for me, plus-my parents are coming up from Florida, FIs parents are coming down from SC and staying at my house-it will be easy to mingle and visit with lots of different folks. Looks like about 40 people or so! I’m excited!!!

Game is at 7:45, so it will be a fun afternoon of visiting and then people can later watch the game. 🙂

I’m involved in my shower because some of the girls don’t understand what it takes to do it all. Most my Maid/Matron of Honor is doing. I’m just telling her ideas and what I want in it. The bachlorette party is a suprise to me! I know of a few things happening but after that it’s a suprise. I’m real excited! I didn’t think about a theme for the shower… maybe my Maid/Matron of Honor did. I’ll ask tomorrow when we finalize everything. I like all the themes you all had. Very fun times!

I had a French shabby chic theme – thrown by my boss who has lived in Europe for the past four years. Complete with a croquembouche! It was wonderful! 

 

My attachments never work on this site! Don’t know why I bother to try! But the croquembouche was terrific, even if breaking into it was kind of difficult.
