Wedding Shower Ideas

Do you ever have one of those days when you really really want to do something creative and productive. But just have no ideas of what to do or where to begin.
Well today is one of those days for me. I have one whole day off from work...woohoo!! And i want to make the most of it.
 My car is in the shop getting expensive things done to it, new brake pads, and rotary things, etc. But the point being i have no forms of transportation today, so i must occupy myself at home. Hopefully i don't get sucked into Pinterest today, because if i do i will never leave. lol. I may be slightly addicted. I spend more time planning all the cute things i want to make and cook and not enough time actually making them.

My sisters (amber) wedding is coming up all too soon. 3 months and counting. We are planning on hosting a couples wedding shower at the end of April. These are the ideas i have come up with so far:

Guest Book: I made this adorable photo guest book using MyPublisher, i also had a Groupon for it so that helped. I used all of ambers engagement photos and on every other page i added a question for the guests to answer.

The questions in the book are:
  • Where do you see us in 25 years
  • What is the best marriage advice you have ever received
  • How do you keep Richard Happy
  • How do you keep Amber happy
  • When did you know we were meant for each other
  • What are some fun and affordable date night ideas
  • Share a funny memory of the two of us
  • Complete this sentence...Love is never having to.....
  • How many kids should we have and what should we name them
  • What are your tips to falling in love, over and over again
  • And the last couple pages are blank with the title: Comments, Sayings, memories, Quotes, Stories

Food: My mum and I have decided that the best and easiest option is going to be a selection of dips and dippers. And a few tasty one bite dessert options. It is a 3'oclock wedding shower so we are just providing light snacks for people

Drink: We are going to make a large amount of white wine sangria. Yummy. These recipes from Pinterest look like they are going to be tasty, i just have to pick one.

 This is a Strawberry and blueberry sangria from
    This will probably be the winning recipe. I like how it has lemonade in it. From
