Carlyn Menser and I had the privilege of putting together a wedding shower for Thomas Lane and Helen Crane. What an absolutely adorable couple! We wanted the shower to be lots of fun, so we came up with the idea of theming it out with the Game of Life. It sort of turned into the LANE LIFE shower. Check it out:
|These letters were hung in my big window.|
|A big picture of the table.|
(notice my green outdoor carpet placemats again!)
|Carlyn found these cars at the thrift store. I spray painted them white.|
They are sitting on the same shadow boxes that I used in my baseball shower.
|Check out the back of the car. The little oval on the back of the car is a WEC magnet. |
Can't get married without a Waters Edge Church magnet!
|Carlyn found the Game of Life at a thrift store---she's a good shopper. |
We put the game at an angel to give the table dimension.
We also put fabric underneath the game using the same colors of the game.
|I just think that this is a cool angle!|
|We alternated the plates. Blue plates had yellow napkins. The napkin rings were cards from the actual Game of Life. We punched a hole in the top and looped it with hair ties.|
|Green plates had purple napkins. Notice the money to the side too. It is in the details, people!|
|Carlyn made these yummy stuffed strawberries. I am pretty sure we ate them all!|
|More peg people.|
We also used our Irish Coffee Mugs for coffee.
We attached game pieces to the bottom of each coffee mug. One more way to tie in the theme.
|This is the second table. |
*I painted the LANE letters to add color to the table.
*I covered 2 vases in scrapbooking paper.
*I stuffed it with the Game of Life money.
|I wanted to bring the theme into my family room.|
*I painted these extra large paper clips white.
*I cut these letters with my lovely Cricut and glued them onto brightly colored paper.
Congrats Thomas and Helen! You guys will have an amazing LANE LIFE together!
