• Plan ahead (if you are prepping…plan your time from the event backwards to give yourself the prep time you need.)
• Sleepless nights
• A little stress
• A lot of hard work
• A theme, in this case sophisticated to work with a beautiful décor, not against it.
• A color pallet, this one was based on the invite pink, browns and creams.
• Décor concept, simple and less is best. In this case beautiful paper wheel fans hanging from the large floral arrangement and spread throughout the table and room.
• Define the time of day and who the guests will be. In this case our guest were all adults and the shower appropriately timed as early happy hour.
• A menu or catering choices. In this case the shower was late Saturday afternoon on a very hot day. All cold items…
o Spinach strawberry salad with candied pecans
o Caprese skewers with olive oil and cherry balsamic
o Cheese and meet platter with fresh fruit
o Fresh veggie platter with homemade ranch dressing
o Hummus Mediterranean platter
o Apple chicken salad in individual cups
o Melon and prosciutto skewer
o Cold sliders of cucumber dill, tomato pesto and egg salad with vinaigrette arugula.
o Citrus infused water
o Coconut bunt cake cups
o  Cute baby booties with personalized tags as give always holding OPI nail polish

• Serving pieces pre-organized to hold all food (No plastic allowed)
• Flowers, a little goes a long way when you buy from a local floral mart and assemble your own arrangements. The flowers totaled $68.00 for 5 arrangements.
• Wine and spirits
• Serving staff…bartender and amazing set up clean up people.

Last but not least…did I mention deodorant? The day of the shower was flipping hot and I was a mess after set up. In fact I have never seen so many punctual guestsin my entire life! The 3:00 hour hit and all 30 people hit the door…picture me running out the back door a sweaty mess and because they all showed up right on time; I could not snap any good pictures…frown-e face ;0(
