First they decided on a location. I love when I am able to mingle with all of my guests and can see everyone in one room, so my mother-in-law so kindly held it at her place which has a perfect open area. Hosting a shower at home can help you save a considerable amount of your budget. Just remember if you decide to take this route, you will have to provide plates, cups, napkins, utensils, and may even have to rent tables, chairs, and linens. It is a lot of hard work, but it is totally worth it in the end.
Second job to tackle was the theme of the shower. I love love love summer, and what better way to celebrate my favourite season than to bring the outside in. They went with vibrant colours such as orange, pink, green and also added touches of brown for an earth tone. The decorations had an organic feel as they used fresh flowers that were in season and fruits such as green apples and limes.
