My co-workers and I sent off one of our own to be married to her beloved. She spent most of this past year traveling from Texas to Florida to be with him. So we decided a travel-themed shower would be fun.
We used a vintage suitcase and a small bouquet of flowers with a tag for the front porch decor.
In the living area, where guests gathered, we featured a map mounted on foam board. Since her shower was on Valentine’s Day we googled cities in the US with a Valentine them in the name and made little hearts and attached them with red and white push pins — Candy Town, Ohio; Lover, Pennsylvania…
Refreshments were Kale and Goat Cheese empanadas, melon prosciutto skewers, Havarti and apricot bruschetta and tres leches cake parfaits. Small bottles of Perrier featured straws with “yes” flags.
