It can be hard to throw a shower in the middle of high wedding season, but I wanted to do something for my sister to show her how special she is. She is also planning my bridal shower, so I needed to make sure I didn't disappoint!
We picked a date, and that it would be a lunch. I then decided on doing a picnic theme, and scoured all the rental books at the studio, and found the most adorable little pine picnic benches and red checkered napkins, so I knew I could run with it. I was working with a limited budget and time, but I found a lot of what I would need online, and started making things on my own as well.
My sister took the photos below that I am sharing of the set-up. I purchased glass bottle Coke's at our local market weeks prior, and since I don't drink that much soda, I had to really turn it on to get as many as I would need for my floral arrangements. My first idea was to put down green astro-turf on the patio, but in the end, the cost and labor was too high, so I purchased little strips for the centerpieces instead. The mini picnic baskets from Beau-coup were not only holding the guests favors, but also a part of the centerpiece. I picked up Gerber daises that morning, and mixed up the colors on each picnic table. I used all the rental items from Hartmann Studios for the place settings and the picnic tables, and I loved the red checkered napkins.
The guests and my sister had a great time, I hope you enjoy the photos!
