We just got home from a great trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where we spent 6 days celebrating our friend's wedding, relaxing and enjoying the warm sunshine. The shower went off without a hitch and most importantly - the bride had a fabulous time! Check out the details below.
Invitations from the Well Heeled Hostess. They set the tone for the orange, pink and grey theme. We went with a lingerie theme because we figured it was first and foremost fun and also the easiest thing for people to pack to an international destination.
We held the reception at the Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar Resort and Spa. The hotel was gorgeous. They seated us on a terrace overlooking the ocean. Perfect! It was a bit of a challenge planning an event in a location we had never seen. Our goal was to bring as much color, personality and fun to the shower all while not exceeding the 50 lb weight limit for our suitcases!!! Lots of paper products in fun colors brought the shower to life! We had pink and orange tissue pom poms to add color - they were from Polka Dot Market.
5 and 7 things they adore about each other was so fun. We contacted the bride and groom and asked them to send us 5 things they adore or love about the other one. The groom told us he couldn't limit it to just 5, he had too many things to say about her. How sweet! All of the guests loved this touch. It was personal and easy to bring to Mexico.
He Says . . . She Says was the shower game. We asked the bride and groom to send us ten funny things they had said in the time they were together. Five from him and five from her. The guests had to guess which one said each quote. We had the bride go through them and tell everyone the answers and explain the stories. It was a cute way to tell some fun stories about the couple. The bride and groom were both great sports about getting us the information. These prints were created by my friend Pete. Thanks Pete!
Hot pink cups with personalized stickers were on the table filled with bright colored jelly belly candies. It was a great pop of color and a sweet treat! Cups from Polka Dot Market, stickers from the Well Heeled Hostess.
I am loving polka dot and striped straws right now. They are whimsical and fun. These were from Polka Dot Market.
Large colored confetti was from the Etsy shop Misty and Me. The holders for the signs were from weddingfavors.com.
The game with painted pencils (click here for DIY instructions) were at each place setting. I didn't get any pics after the food and beverages arrive. We had chips, guacamole and salsa and margaritas. It was a perfect afternoon snack!
The beaming bride! Happy shower day Stace!
She received lots of pretty little lace things. In the end everything came together!
Happy Party Planning!
