Silver & Lavender Couples Shower

It's a couples shower!  Silver and Lavender are the wedding colors for this couple.  A pretty combination!
Since it was a couples shower, I didn't want to decorate too girly.  So I kept it neutral with the silver, black and white banners.  Floating candles inside cylinder vases adorn the mantle.
Guests were greeted at the front door with a wreath that I made from vintage wedding gowns and white silk beaded evening gowns.
Once inside, I placed an embellished floating candle arrangement on the foyer table.
I wrapped the glass vase in rhinestone mesh that I embellished even MORE with bridal lace, beaded trim, metal ribbon, crystals, and a brooch!  Then I placed the vase on this embellished white pedestal that is just dripping with crystals!
As guests turned to the right, here's what they saw next....

Then comes the buffet table!

 I wrapped this two-tiered serving tray in rhinestone mesh

I made little monogrammed cupcake/food toppers with the initials of the bride and groom.
 Even the Sushi got  little monogrammed food toppers!
 Here are the little wedding bells that I made to hang from the chandelier over the buffet table.
  I made them with paper mache ornaments that were meant to be Christmas ornaments.  Just covered them in silk beaded bridal fabric - little wedding bells - I love them!!
Even the water bottles were decorated!
On to the gift table....
 I painted and embellished this lamp base to be the base for this sign.
Want to see a close up of this mantle?

So there you have it!  A couples shower where everyone had a great time with great food!  (I can take no credit for the food....only the decor and buffet set up/decor.)  The food was beautiful, and looked quite tasty!  Hope this inspires you for your next party!

Cheers! Catherine
