Ideas wanted for "I Love Ireland" wedding shower
A close friend is getting married this summer, and I am her matron of honor. I will be hosting a small shower in my home for her, and am thinking of doing an "I Love Ireland" theme, as she is head-over-heels for anything Irish and that is also where she and her new husband will honeymoon. We have so many creative souls here, that I thought I'd see if you could provide any suggestions for decor, food, and/or games or other shower "diversions." The wedding itself is not themed, but the bride-to-be is totally on board with a themed shower. I think it will be fun too. I've captured a few photos below that I find appealing ... I realize it would be very easy to veer into St. Patrick's Day territory, so I will do my best to focus on the couple and their upcoming travel to Ireland.
Love this table setting ... I'd tweak it even more to be Ireland-specific:
Perhaps a chocolate-mint trifle:
A pretty green punch (or champagne-based drink?):
Shamrock-shaped cookies or decorated cupcakes:
