Hey everyone! We are Jac and Leah from Sweet & Sour Showers. We live in Austin like Amanda, and we love reading about all her goings-on. We were so excited when she asked us to guest post!
We have been friends since high school (although you won't see any 9th grade pics any time soon) and recently took the plunge into the blog world. Since we're at the age where tons of our friends are getting married and having babies, we have had LOTS of practice planning showers. What we noticed through all this practice, though, is that while there are tons of wedding and totally over-the-top party planning sites, there isn't a good resource to help girls our age throw a really special shower for our BFFs.
You know what else we noticed? Sometimes planning showers sucks. So, we thought it would be kind of fun to blog about that, too.
To start, check out the pics from some of our favorites showers:
|Monogram Themed Shower|
|Tapas & Sangria Shower - these are Mexican wedding cookies as party favors|
|Engagement Brunch - plus paper rosette tutorial|
See more pics and read about our party themes here!
So like our Facebook page says, we strive to show you how you can create a memorable shower in an affordable and attainable way (and hopefully sell a few baked treats along the way...)
Did we mention we love to bake? We thought that blogging about all our showers would be a great way to feature our baked treats, many of which we have customized specifically for wedding-related events.
Here's a look at some of our favorites:
|Tropical sugar cookies (our friend was heading to Hawaii for her honeymoon)|
|Animal print cookies - perfect for any bachelorette party!|
|Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes with Glitter - doesn't get any girlier than that!|
|Wedding Cake Pops - the ultimate shower treat/favor|
You can check out more of our baked treats here, and feel free to contact us if you are in the Austin area.
Since Amanda's mom is about to get married, we can't wait to see what ideas she comes up with and how we can help her with the festivities. In the meantime, we hope you'll come check out our blog or follow us on Twitter. Be sure to say hi!
