showering the soon-to-be bride + groom!

Last weekend, Craig and I hosted a Stock the Bar Shower for my brother and his fiance in honor of their upcoming wedding. We love entertaining at our house, and I love planning things, so we had a lot of fun preparing for our shindig. With tons of ideas pinned on a secret board on Pinterest, I got to work on designing the invitation (with some input from my co-host, of course). The orange bars are just covering our address and contact info for use here.

Red Velvet and Coca-Cola cupcakes from West Egg (some of Andrew’s favorites) with toppers that I made::

Our shower gift – a basket full of wine bottles with individual tags for some of their first big events as a married couple::

Wine bottle centerpieces that we made in keeping with the Stock the Bar theme (tutorial was posted on Sun, 3/3)::

We hired our friends Jonathan and Sarah of S & J’s Wood Fired Pizza to cater the shower,
complete with a wood burning oven in the driveway! They served cheese garlic bread, caesar salads, and almost any kind of pizza you could imagine. Some of the favorites were the meatza and the apple/bacon/feta pizza. Yum!

Long-time friends from Franklin, TN::

Happy Shower to two of our most favorite people! We can’t wait to officially welcome you to the family, Lauren!
