Lauren's Bridal Shower was held last month at our friends pool, so it was a no brainer the theme would be "Tropical". You can read here about our inspiration.
The shower went smoothly, but the weather was terrible. It was so windy and hot, that we weren't really able to do much decorating. The backyard is already like a oasis, so it didn't need much more sprucing up, even though we were planning on it.

Food & Drinks: We had Grilled Ham & Pineapple Kabobs, Finger Sandwiches, Meat Roll-ups, Chips, Fruit Kebabs & dip, Veggie Tray, Punch, Mimosa's, and Sangria's. We also had water for those that didn't/couldn't drink alcohol. The maid of honor made yummy cupcakes, that sadly I didn't get a photo of. They were adorable!

Favors: We put together little goodie bags for the guests filled with a lei, paper fan, and a hair clip flower. We ordered the fans & clips from Oriental Trading, and picked up the lei's from a local party shop. It was something fun to get everyone in the tropical mood!
Now we are preparing for the bachelorette weekend that is taking place Aug 9th-11th! I'm so excited, I can't wait!! Here is a peek at the invitations that I designed for it:
