Real party: a LumberJack and Jill couple's shower

I love this couple's shower designed by Trish of Frilly Milly Events. It incorporates personal interests of the couple with a completely unique theme and the food....wow!

As told by Trish:

The original concept/theme was somewhat of an “enchanted forest” due to the couples’ love for vintage/outdoorsy/retro pieces, but when it all came together I decided it was more appropriately titled “Lumber Jack and Jill”.



Because it was a couples shower, Trish wanted it to not only be feminine and dainty, but have a strong masculine presence as well. In order to do that she incorporated plaids and wildflower prints.
Trish served bbq foods (burgers, baked beans, corn on the cob, etc.) in small packages (sliders, tiny baked bean pots, etc.).  I am in love with those baked beans in a jar and the french fry cones!!!


Trish put together little brown bags with all of the ingredients to create s’morea with a  label that read “s’more love” and on the backside the couples’ wedding date.
Be sure to head over to Trish's blog, Frilly Milly Events and check out photos from the "photo booth" she set up as entertainment for the party.

Amazing job on this couple's shower, Trish.  This is one party I'd love to attend!

  13. Thank you to everyone for the sweet, sweet comments! I am flattered beyond words! Wanted to let Anonymous know that I purchased the wild flower vellum at my local Jo-Ann Fabrics in the scrapbook section. I didn't cut it - just took the 8.5x11, folded it in half to make a 5.5x8.5 piece (and add extra thickness), then twisted it into a cone held together by a piece of clear tape!
