Couples Shower Recap!

Last night we hosted a couples shower with Aaron & Nicole for our good friends Alison and Mark. Nicole and I have been planning this for a few weeks and everything turned out fabulous! It was a stock the bar theme shower and they received so many fun gifts from bottles of wine, liquor, wine accessories and glassware. I took a ton of pictures so you can scroll through them below to see all the fun details and then some of the guests. Nicole also posted a few details of the shower on her blog so you can check out the menu and our fun drinks that we had :)



The fab Nicky T working in the kitchen

This is where the guys spent most of the afternoon.....
The boys got up and decided to help....this lasted two minutes. Actually Ryan did a great job with the bruschetta and Aaron cooked a delicious tenderloin :)


The food - Mushroom/Cheese Bruschetta, Asparagus Prosciutto Bundles, Tenderloin Sliders & Shrimp Cocktail - Yum!

The awesome cake! It matched pefectly with the colors from the invitation and it tasted great!

Here's a sample of the menu cards we had set out

The drink station - Sangria and Champagne

Garnishments for the Sangria


Marriage advice for Alison and Mark - this got interesting as the night went on but it was fun to hear what everyone wrote to them.

And now on to the party....
