Beachy & Blissful Bridal {Couples} Shower

Happy Wednesday!!
Today I'm linking up to showcase some of
my ideas for my sister's bridal shower.
My sister wants a couples shower;
we had one before Joe and I got married.
It was low key, picnic-esque foods,
outside, warmer weather, cold drinks...
I loved everything about our shower!
I want to make hers just as special
and since she's getting married on St. Thomas,
I have been researching tons of ways to 
bring the beach up here to a little park in New York.
I am envisioning lots of blues and browns 
{her wedding colors}
fresh green plants
sand
sea shells
twinkle white lights
mimosas & fun cocktail drinks
and lots of good tasting food!
 So today's pins?
All about the Blissful Beach Couples Shower:
Some fruity beverages to calm nerves & spark stranger convos:

Some festive decor ideas:

or















Maybe I could get my girl Molly to help me make a sign like this!!

I definitely want to make cute signs and have them look sharp!

We are in love with these super cute {and easy?} napkin/utensils!

The bride to be has requested cupcakes...
Love the White Pail with ropes!

And of course, I will need to have some print-outs framed to place around:

My favorite beachy quote!!

I want to make a banner of some sorts,
what should it say?

Of all the fish in the sea...So cute!

I am a bit intimidated by this, but I think it's soooo cute.
Any takers?

I know it will be here soon, 
so we are getting a move on and starting to assemble things this week! 
She's marrying into an Italian family too, 
so amongst all of us, we have some fabulous food to top it off!
Ok, I know a lot of you are super creative, crafty, and organized.
What else can you think of for this beach theme?
I want it to be unique and meaningful,
especially since a lot of the guests will not be attending
the actual wedding, I feel the a bit of pressure in making
this day super special for my little sister, Brianna and her fiance, Eric.
Ideas??

  5. The Lifesaver napkin rings are adorable! And the shark cupcakes are cute too.

    As for the banner, maybe it should have some kind of beach phrase? "Life's a beach" "Smooth sailing ahead" "Our love is a shore thing" "Best fishes" "Set sail for a new adventure" "Love will sea us through" "Whale you marry me?"

  6. Loving those pics! SUper cute!! Our couples shower sounds similar to yours- it was an "outdoor" theme and we got grilling stuff, yard stuff, etc. Very "picnicky"....ha! (not a word- oh well!)

    E-mail me when you get a chance...I can't find your e-mail address on here. I wanna tell you some more about the price for the challenge. There are some options to make it cheaper!! (Price threw me off at first too!)
