3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / best fall bridal shower! on: September 13, 2006 05:46:09 AM
Ok so next fall my younger sister is getting married and since my older sister and I are total planners and do everything in advanced we planned her shower this weekend when we were bored!  Ha ha!  But I thought I would share some of our ideas here.  We are doing a Jack and Jill shower, meaning men and women and that the groom will also be there.  I think its more fun this way plus the bride is super shy and wouldnt like all the attention on her so I thought she would love to have her man there to share the spotlight with.  It will take place in September in his moms yard.  His mom has a huge property and its very rustic and charming back there.  The deer are so nice that even during a huge yard sale we had there they were around checking everything out!  But heres the list


Hot Apple Cidar
Glazed donuts piled up to look like a wedding cake with homemade cake topper on it
fried chicken with pepper jelly yum!
Crockpot of Chilli
veggie tray with dips
gourment breads of all types we have a great cheaper bakery right here
apple tray, we have fantastic apples around here at that time of year make up a fancy tray with some dips in the middle
mulled wine
fall pies for dessert


gingam everywhere!  sis doesnt care for flowers much
centerpiece will be bride and grooms first teddy bears in a tiny wagon on the table they mean alot to the bride and groom they actually keep both of them on their mantle and wanted to include them in the decor for them so they can take some sweet pictures
cute scarecrows around the yard
plastic silverware wrapped in red napkins tied off with gingham
all silverware plates and cups will be in pretty and huge baskets sis can keep to use for laundry and stuff after
simple wreaths in trees
we also have a special cd of wedding and movie love songs through all different eras that is going to be fun to get people talking everything from somebodies getting marrie from the muppets take manhattan to a bagpipe wedding march......very unique and a good conversation starter

special touches
four bridesmaids so we are each making up a different season basket
like fall will be in a turkey roasting pan sis really wants one it will have a halloween candy dish, fall candles, cloth napkins for a thanksgiving table, fall spices and some recipes in a jar, christmas will be william sonoma cookie gun and and fancy candle sticks wrapped with christmas candles, a set of holiday cards, some new years champagne and a new our first christmas togethor ornament etc etc for each season this will give sis some out of season stuff she will not have to purchase and a way to use her little gifts all year long.  We are also making a very special cook book with fave recipes from bride and grooms moms aunts and grandmas, sis loves to cook groom is very much a man that loves his family recipes!  We are going to add scanned pictures of each family member who turns in a recipe and why they wanted to pass each one on to the couple.  Very sentimental and special and some are even silly, sis recipe for choo choo wheels when she was little on up to great grandmothers special pyrogy recipe.  The door prizes at the shower will be gourmet baskets with different themes, ie an italian ceramic bowl with dried pastas and gourmet sauces etc. a bundt pan stuffed with spices and mixes for fancy cakes etc.

these are going to be great!  since this is coed its going to be a handmade card that says Johnny Cash lyrics at the top, "if I were a carpenter and you were a lady, would you still marry me?"  "Carpenter and Lady are registered at...."  card tucked inside and the party info.

each guest will take home a huge carmel apple wrapped really pretty tied with rafia and set into a handpainted terra cotta flower pot.  we think this is a nice idea, a great snack to eat at home later and a useful flower pot for a plant or candle.  Everyone around here gives out tiny bundles of poppouri at showers or almonds wrapped in tulle.  We wanted to do something more homespun and more to the couples tastes.  They are very casual and not into flowers and stuff.

We are so excited over this that we wish it was tommorrow!  We have already helped sis pick locations and favors for the wedding and all other aspects are being planned now to the last detail.  I hope you liked these ideas I know fall is very popular for weddings and wanted to share our spin on a different kind of shower
