Shower Them With Love

My sister Cora is getting married August 22nd and since I am the maid-of-honour (I refuse to call myself a matron), I was responsible for throwing them an awesome wedding shower. Not to be too vain or anything, but gosh I did good.

I found all my inspiration from Pinterest (obviously) and I executed it with perfection. The party was held at my mom's house, which was the ideal backdrop for a camping themed party.

Instead of a guestbook we had them sign Jenga pieces
I had a few games to play and had amazing prizes for the winners.

Giant memory
Prize table
We also played the shoe game, just for some entertainment. It was a total hit, like always.

I think that one of my favourite decorations/food was the trail mix bar. It turned out even better than I had hoped.

Ah, it was perfection. Wouldn't you agree?

The food was also pretty great and I tried my hardest to stick with a camping theme while also making it tasty and easy to put together. I think I succeeded.

So much deliciousness.

The shower went beautifully and everyone loved it and had fun. All the planning and work that I put into it was totally worth it.

Now to get back to other wedding prep!


  1. beautiful shower!! looks like you did an AWESOME job! TOTALLY pinterest-worthy!!!

  2. Wow, everything looks great! And yummy too.

  3. Jennie--this is ASTONISHING!! I mean, seriously--it's straight out of a bridal magazine. And I think you did it on a pretty tight budget, too, right? I can't believe how absolutely perfectly it turned out. You definitely win for best maid of honor / sister--now can you come plan the shower I have to give this fall? ;-)

  4. Jennie you are the best maid of honour ever! Great ideas and super food! Not sure what the 'shoe game' is though!

  5. Looks like a great shower! Love having the guests sign Jenga pieces - I haven't heard of that but such a fun idea!

    All the planning was definitely worth it! :D
    A million thanks to the BEST MAID OF HONOUR EVER!!
