    So I was so wowed with how the hosts of our Couples Shower created the ambiance and decor of the event, I wanted to share for inspiration! It was an overall fiesta theme, serving Mexican food, margaritas, a guitar duo, etc.

    But I was totally in love with the decor. It was beautiful and casual, very festive without being overpowering or loud. I truly loved it all and thought that the colors, flowers etc might be able to help. It would be especially lovely for an AHR.

    And the favors were those animal shakers, placed at each place setting and were a total hit. I had been to a wedding in Mexico where they passed out these shakers at around 11pm and they were so much fun, definitely added some flare to the dance floor.

    Enjoy!

    My favorite part: custom bride & groom pinatas that match our eye & hair color...those were real flowers on the bouquet and the veil! We saved them, and took pictures of them which will go on our wedding favors (cookies) for our guests! These were placed on the gift table. They look a little creepy in the pictures though.

          What a fabulous party!!! You have some people that love you. I don't think I'm having a shower. But if I did, I would want it to be a festive event like yours.


          OK, so here's the stupid part. What are shakers? Do they clap or something? Rattle? I guess that makes more sense.

            That looks great! I love the flowers in the center of the table!
            Did the restaurant do that or the people who put the shower on?

                Beautiful and festive! Are those ribbons hanging off the tableclothes?

                  Not stupid at all! Those "shakers" are the animal things...they have beans or beads or something inside, like a rattle, so when you move them around, they shake!

                  That was their house, and actually they have a coordinator they use for stuff like that, so she did the majority of it.

                  I loved the tablecloths! They are actually sort of overlays, if you look really closely, they are like donuts...the middle is cut out. So the ribbons are attached to the circle part and hang down, and they just put a neutral color table cloth under it so it wouldn't look obvious. This would totally be a doable DIY project for someone who can sew a bit!

                  Thanks Ladies! We had a blast! I just thought the decor was so great and would work for so many of us that are on the forum!
