We had seated tables for lunch. We had alternating red & purple foil chargers over beautiful gold linens. Lindsay and I scoured thrift stores for candle sticks in the weeks leading up to the shower. A quick coat of spray paint to turn them old gold, and we had our centerpieces. I also scored a huge bag of think gold hoops at a garage sale. We used them as napkin rings and sprinkled extras around the tables as well.
We also placed a large glass vessel with pita triangles and hummus on each table.
Placecards matched the invitation.
We rented a few umbrellas to scatter between seated tables. We hung metallic bangle bracelets from the undersides of the umbrellas. These were the one metallic thing I could find when I started hunting around my house originally! It was an easy touch.
Then it was time for gifts!
We created a cozy little area for gift opening, including large bedazzled pillows and colored glass stars. We referred to this area as the “Moroccan Oasis.”
After that healthy salad lunch, it was time to splurge!
We stuck with the “bar” theme and had a build your own sundae bar. Featuring San Francisco’s famous handmade Mitchell’s ice cream, of course. Yum Yum!
Drea loved the headshots I did at Katie’s shower, so we did it again for hers. We encouraged people to wear their big, bright jewelry to the shower and many people did.
The star of the jewelry show was Johanna’s wrist though. It didn’t make the headshot collage, but I couldn’t leave it off completely.
We cannot wait until she’s here!!!
The countdown is officially on for these two!
