Recently a lot of my posts have been wedding related. If you remember reading this post, I have a lot of upcoming weddings which also means a lot of wedding showers. So far Dawn and Vick's showers have been a success!
This past weekend, my big bro, also known as "Big A" celebrated his upcoming nuptials with his beautiful bride. They took the path of a "Couples Shower" so both the girls and gals could celebrate together.
Here are a few pictures that captured the beautiful, but oh so hot day! (95 degrees and humid)
A few days before the shower, I received a frantic phone call from my mother. She was concerned that we didn't have favors and wanted something special for them. "No worries mom, I will take care of it. I have a few inexpensive but classy ideas. I'll bring the favors." I said.
After a trip to target and Michaels (and you know I had my 40% coupon in hand) I whipped together the favors.
I bought the clear tins (which came with blank labels) and the ribbon from Michaels and filled them with chewy sweet tarts. I printed the labels on my computer and tied some brown and pink ribbon around them. All for the cost of $19. Can't beat that. "
- Tins $12.00 (after the coupon)
- Ribbon $1.00
- Candy $6.00
