I am friends with David's mom and my husband does home improvements for David. Because of the groom connection with this shower, we decided to get David hooked up with some tools and "Honey Do" items! David loved the idea. The Invitations went out, with the notation that David was Registered at Home Depot! Home Depot will register gifts for showers and weddings. Awesome! We picked out at cute invite with pictures of tools by a recliner. They were adorable. From the invitations, we got our colors, yellow, chocolate brown and lime green.
We had a great time planning the shower. David and Rebecca loved it. All the men loved the food, secret sauce bbq chicken, man dip (made from sausage, cream cheese and rotel) cocktail weiners, meatballs, cheeses, fruit, apple toffee dip, cupcakes, lemonade and bottled cokes. Meat, cheese and meat. Sounds perfect and very manly.
We did play two games. I asked David questions about himself, such as...what was his favorite super hero growning up, what is his favorite outfit that Rebecca wears, his favorite meat, etc. As she correctly got the answers, he got to open the presents. Of course we let her slide on some! But she did a great job. As guests arrived we had two glass jars. In one they were instructed to write a problem that the married couple may face in the future. On the other slip of paper ( I almost wrote slipcover right there, weird) they were to write the solution to the problem. The cute part was, at the end of the shower, Terry carried the jars around, each guest read a problem and then they took a solution from the other jar. Which means the solutions didn't go to the problems...so the results were hilarious. Everyone seemed to like these two games. We even had a comment from someone that normally doesn't like showers, and she said it was the best she had ever been to. The men all appreciated it. Now several other young men that are getting married, want their own "Honey Do" shower, including my son! I hope that you enjoyed this cute idea for a shower. Now I will get back to my slipcovers!
